What is the best restaurant in the East Village? Veselka...hands down. Yes, you can get a salad or veggie burger at Veselka but everyone knows that you go to Veselka to get your pierogi-kielbasa-Ukranian meatball-goulash-stroganoff-bigo stew on and everyone there is doing the same damn thing. Whether it's 2pm or 2am, Veselka puts a Ukranian exclamation point on comfort.
