Polish restaurant in metro Washington DC area?

PolishGirlInDC     Feb 3, 2007, 05:48pm  #1

I've looked at all of the ethnic restaurant guides and I can't find one. Surely there must be at least one Polish restuarant in this area. If not, does anyone know of a place that would serve pierogi. I just moved here and I am dying to try Polish cuisine in the area! Help!

There is a Russian Restaurant in Herndon, VA -

russiahouserestaurant.com - not exactly what you are looking for, but it is European, and there is something on the menu similar to Pierogi.

I think there will be a Polish festival at some point during the year - you might want to check out the Embassy of Poland website.

How do you like it here so far? I live in Virginia.

Also in Herndon, Va is Jimmy's Tavern on Elden Street (the owners are from Buffalo, NY). On Fridays they do and old fashion Fish Fry and you can get it with Pierogies and or Polish Sausage. It's really good.

Do you know where Polish Broadway REALLY is?
It is in Chicago!! ....
Wicker Park was a predominantly Polish neighborhood, and that stretch of Division Street had earned the nickname "Polish Broadway" for the high concentration of Polish bars and taverns along the street.

here is what the Frank Sinatra of Chicago Push style music Lenny Gomulka (he became a professionaly musician at age 13!) has to say...
Posted 9 Aug 2004 20:27:09 -0700 to alt.music.polkas by Lenny Gomulka. Reprinted by permission.

Concertina music has always been big in upper Wisconsin and Minnesota, etc., because of its heavy association with the Dutch and German orchestras of the 30's & 40's. As far as Chicago, there was an area called "Polish Broadway" better known as Division Street on the near north side which was the single largest influence on Polish concertina music anywhere. It was in this area mostly during the 40's and early 50's that players made names for themselves and influenced the Polish Polka field. Those names include Eddie Zima, Casey Siewierski, Stas Zombeck, Gene Lind Lipchinski, Matty Krengiel, Ted & Johnny Dudczyk, Mlody Adolf, Wally Banks, Li'l Wally Jagiello and dozens upon dozens of others. The concertina craze in Polish music was born in Chicago and it highly influenced to the east and nationally what we're seeing today. By the way, the original accordion & concertina combination playing together in a Polish polka band was with Jerry Pietranczyk & the Polka Sharps of Chicago with Wally Maduzia on concertina and Jerry Pietranczyk on accordion. The east coast was largely influenced by technical accordionists and Polish concertina bands were rare. I think what we see today in the Polish polka field is the result of Polish fans loving concertina music and enjoying the Chicago dancing tempos, which pretty much rule.

check out some Push music for yourself...

now a moment of silence to show respect to the man who helped to start the Push movement Li'l Wally Jagiello who started Jay Jay records and passed away in 2006.

Try the new Kielbasa Factory. I think you'll like it even better. I've been to both and definitely recommend it to anyone in the area.

The kielbasa, pierogi, bread, golabki, paczki, etc.... all excellent. The food is much more natural than what can be found at regular, local, large grocery chain stores (and... of course unique in this area).

I realize this is a little late, but I didn't get to DC until March. There's a place called W Domku (At the [diminutive] House) that has Polish food. (Central European in general really, but mostly Slavic and the owner is Polish). It's in NW, close to Georgia Ave.

Guest     Sep 13, 2008, 09:01pm  #12

Sorry. It's on Upshur St. forgot that part... It's a rough-ish area, and you have to look for it, but it's there. GREAT kielbasa...

Not a really good cafe.
Service Not so good.
Cold inside:)
And so called polish food, its not even close to polish or slavic, just looks like it a little. But in taste not even close. And who charges 15$ for polish kielbasa, when its not even polish and its not worth that much even with preperation.

So in conclusion place not worth going to.
