A Ukrainian Village landmark.
Kasia's Deli has been a Ukie Village landmark for decades, and owner Kazimiera Bober has proudly served her pierogi and galompki (cabbage rolls) to presidents (Clinton), mayors (Daley), and domestic divas (Martha Stewart). In addition to the Polish dumplings, there's a fine selection of mildly spiced, mostly meat-based dishes that'll easily fill two hungry guys for under $20. In fact, if you spend much more than that, you’ll probably need a two-wheeler to cart home your doggy bag. Veal meatballs, flecked with dill, are subtle, and like many of the dishes here, satisfying though not aggressively flavored. If salad appeals, the pureed beet has a soft whisper of horseradish, and there are several types of slaw, as well a potato salad with carrots and peas. The best ordering strategy is to buy a quarter-pound of six or seven selections and then nosh at one of two small cafe tables at the front—the staff will warm everything for you.
