The name means "rainbow" in Ukrainian, and you can order potato pierogis 24 hours a day at this East Village stalwart, which opened in 1954. The authentic Ukrainian cuisine slash diner food is the perfect stick-to-your-ribs end to a night on the town—or to begin a new day, as the restaurant serves a full array of breakfast staples. It's a neighborhood experience, with tables of families sharing space with the hipsters. The spacious, sunny interior is great for people-watching;
don't take the servers' studied indifference personally.
