Greenpoint is as close as it comes to a Polish enclave in New York City, and Karczma epitomizes the neighborhood's cultural roots in a wood-filled space that evokes a rustic farmhouse. Everything here is heavy, delicious, and shockingly inexpensive. Most plates come with a side of mashed potatoes topped with fatty pork, including pierogies (which are already potato-filled, mind you) and an earthy dish of meat-stuffed cabbage. The breaded pork cutlet plate never disappoints, just be sure to request a side of mushroom gravy. A lively bar serves German, Austrian, and Polish beers, which are ferried to your table by waitresses wearing traditional Polish dress.
