Venue Info

Pierogi come pretty close to the perfect food: Eastern Europe's gift to the world in the form of potatoes, sauerkraut or ground meat wrapped in dough. Baba's in Gowanus serves nothing but the dumplings in a cozy storefront that doubles as a tribute to the family matriarch who grew up in Communist Czechoslovakia. You can trust in the traditional versions, from sauerkraut to classic potato, but the reason this casual stop attracts attention is its willingness to reinvent, challenging the definition of pierogi with Nutella and mac & cheese stuffed takes.
