An evening at Cracovia
, an upscale Polish restaurant located just off Wadsworth Parkway in Westminster, should begin with an authentic, herbaceous sip of the Polish Cocktail (Bison Grass vodka
, honey liqueur, and apple juice).
From there, move to the house-made kielbasa sausage or a plate of pierogi, scalloped half-moon dumplings filled with cheese, meat, cabbage, and mushrooms and topped with caramelized onions. (Order the combination plate for a taste of all nine fillings.) If you've never had pierogi, think ravioli---only much heartier and without the sauce.
: The gorgeous beet soup---it's light, brothy, studded with potato cubes, and swirled with tangy sour cream---or, for dessert, the blueberry pierogi with sweet sour cream.
