The 24/7 booze-soaking staple is setting up their new branch on the Bowery within concrete-floored digs that resemble a modernist banquet hall, where slightly more "grown up" Ukrainian eats will include sour cherry-sauced roast pork dumplings called Varenyky, brisket-stuffed cabbage, and smoked pork hocks. To keep it going, the 75+ mostly Eastern Euro vodka options are avail in flights or as part of the Zabava, which entails loads of "drink-friendly appetizers" and carafes of the clear stuff sitting in buckets of crushed ice, which is exactly how he felt when he discovered he wouldn't rock his career To The Extreme.
