Okay, there’s a “National Day” for everything now, but this is one we can actually get behind!
Nothing’s quite as comforting, especially on a fall NYC day, as a piping hot pierogi: the light and fluffy Eastern European dumpling stuffed with mashed potato and other goodies. And some of the best in the city are at the East Village restaurant known for its delicious Ukrainian comfort food, Veselka.
New Yorkers were ecstatic when they reopened for takeout and delivery in early May, after being closed due to the pandemic. And now it’s going full throttle with outdoor dining and even 25% capacity indoor dining.
And today, for National Pierogi Day, they are offering a special deal, 8 pierogi for only $8 (the normal price for an order of 8 is $15). Plus it’s 10/8, so it all fits nicely! The deal will be offered all day today.
The special is not available for delivery.
Veselka has been open in the heart of the East Village for over 65 years, and has become beloved by New Yorkers (and has even been featured in movies like Ocean’s 8!).
