7. Serbian: Kafana

Kafana, a rustic bistro located on Avenue C, is home to New York’s most authentic and genuine Serbian cuisine. It offers a variety of Serbian wines, cheeses, and of course: meat, meat, meat. Owned by and staffed with native Serbs, Kafana offers a uniquely intimate experience — seemingly transporting customers to its home country with each bite.

Be sure to try the Pljeskavica sa kajmakom (Serbian burger with kajmak) for a traditional European meal unlike anything you’ve ever eaten before.

Address: 116 Avenue C, New York, NY 10009
