Address: 144 2nd Ave.

One of the few remaining Eastern European restaurants that once populated the East Village, Veselka (meaning “rainbow” in Ukrainian), has been holding down the pierogies front since 1962. Aside from pierogies, you have your classic borscht and kielbasa, but they also sling highly-regarded burgers and plenty of breakfast plates. And when it comes down to it, you just can’t go wrong at this East Village classic, which is why Veselka is one of our top picks for your any-hour snack time.
