metsboy, there's a polish deli across from the Greenpoint park on, I think, Norman Ave.   Inside is 3 or 4 polish woman who make everything fresh daily.  I can't remember the name but they have delicious food.

I want to try this new JHs place tonight.  I'm looking forward to cutlets and mashed potatoes. YUM.
The place you're talking about is on Nassau Ave , love the place. BTW my buddies own the bar across the street. The Palace Cafe aka the Heavy Metal bar. Good cheap drinks.

After a bottle of wine at Novo (?) I mentioned to my friend about this place I read about on this site so we trekked back up and decided to get some perogies. They were near closing but offered us some perogies and a big huge dumpling. I was so surprised because it looked just like what my grandma used to make, I mentioned that we called it potato club and the chef (?) said that was another name for it. It is family run and they were super friendly and helpful. We ended up getting the perogies, the giant dumpling and some cabbage/sausage-like food. EVERYTHING was delicious!! Super delicious actually!! The dumpling was not doughy at all and everything was spiced perfectly!! I will be back for SURE!!

Oh yeah, and the whole thing cost $13 bucks!!!

I'm still loving this place for take out.  Tonight I got some breaded white fish that was crispy on the outside and light on the inside AND their sauerkraut (I love their sauerkraut) and potatoes.  I also bought something off the shelf... a spicy, pickled cabbage/mixed veggies thing.  In Italian it's called Giardiniera although without the cabbage.  Can't wait to try it.

I was here on Cinco de Mayo - because Las Margaritas was full!

Most people take out but I ate in at one of the small tables and had a slice of pork loin, roasted potatoes and salad all for only $6.50
What a deal!  I also took home some of their potato salad.  It is similar to a Russian potato salad you might get at an Argentine or Uruguayan steak place - 1lb for $3.50.  Also was delicious.  I wished I lived a little closer so I could get take out more often.

I thought the cook was married to the lady out front.  There was a different, younger girl working there the other day when I went in.  She was lovely but not like the former woman.  I think that must have been Beata.

Sold? Already? Guess the heart wasn't in it.

The woman-owner (Beata?) was a vegetarian. I can kiss the hot kraut with mushrooms goodbye.

Is Beata gone?? I will stop by today. Love the food, but she was the bigger draw, always smiling and taking my son to the kitchen... great lady, best of luck to her.

The food is still good if not even better. The new owner cooks very well and is ambitious to serve as much variety as possible. But Beata won't be easy to replace... Good luck!
