3. Polish: Karczma

Right in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, you can find a quirky Polish restaurant staffed by employees dressed in stroje ludowe, serving draft Polish beers and pierogis. It is called Karczma, and prepares food so seemingly homemade that you’ll forget you’re even in a restaurant.

Whether you order kielbasa, karkowa (grilled pork shoulder), or a plate of Polish specialties, Karczma consistently delivers large portions at a great price. This authentic European restaurant offers honest Polish cuisine in a light-hearted, entertaining environment.
