    Brunch is excellent. The Fish Board has very good smoked and cured fish, including salmon, sable, trout, and herring. French toast made from great challah and really creamy and crispy. Mmm.

    Different menu than the original location, but you can't go wrong with the pierogi and truffle fries. Never crowded, so good for groups!

    On the menu are some old favorites (hello, borscht and potato pancakes), as well as new dishes like more refined main courses, including pan-roasted fish and a smoked pork hock. Read more

    I love food. It takes a lot for me to not clean my plate. I ate one bite of their beet burger and stopped eating. Even a far cry from the 6/10 original Veselka.

    This is not veselka. Don't be fooled. It is delicious though and fair's more about "reductions" and "risotto" than comforting high-end Ukrainian diner food like the original.

    Perfect place to be on a rainy Tuesday night. Comfort food and a cozy banquette, mushrooms julienne to start, then it looks like it is going to be a pierogi kinda night !!

    The best house salid. Baby arugula, walnuts, bacon bits, pimentos, maple syrup in vinigarette, it's a meal in itself..

    Kielbasa burger is so good. Be sure to top it with tons of sautéed onions and their house mustard

    Don't leave without trying the Alchemia cocoa nib infused vodka, it's one of the best on their list

    Corn beef hash w/ poached egg is excellent. Can't go wrong with French toast either

    Beet burger was very good. Fries really good but Bloody Mary had waaaay too much black pepper and no horseradish.

    Order the pickle shot not to be mistaken with the pickle back shot.

    I sometimes wake at two in the morning craving the egg noodles from here. It's a major issue for me.

    Much more limited/"higher-end" menu than the 8th St one (that one is more like a Ukrainian diner). Not terrible, but loses some of the charm of the original. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    There's a ridiculous design flaw in the men's WC which make the toilet inaccessible.

    Food is good, but service is slow. Do not go if you are in a rush (aka trying to make a movie @ Landmark). Stick with the original Veselka got quality.
