Fun Food Facts:

The question that I get a lot lately is ... so what kind of food do you serve, Italian, Greek, Polish, American?

Short answer is: American.

Long answer is: American with European influences prepared by authentic Polish chefs. And the longer that I am in the food business, the more I learn about the influences individual European countries have had on other nations' food tastes.  Over the last 1000 years, borders in Europe have changed many times over. In fact, Poland ceased to exist on maps 3 different times over the years, although at one point Poland was one of the largest countries in Europe (circa 1400 A.D.) stretching from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea.

Comparing individual items:

  • our housemade dumplings are the same as Poland's kopytka (or kluski) which are the same as the Italian gnocchi;
  • our breaded pork cutlet are the same as Poland's kotlet schabowy which are the same as the Italian cotoletta alla Milanese (special thanks to Eric Sylvers from the Wall Street Journal for a fun food guide on Cutlets in the October 10, 2015 edition) - like Da Martino in Milan, we use pork rather than veal to keep our costs reasonable. And is very similar to the German Weinersnitzel;
  • our beef roulade are the same as Poland's zrazy wołowe which are the same as the German rouladen;
  • our Polish pierogis are the same as the Italian raviolis (the only difference is the filling) which are the same as the Chinese potstickers;
  • our stuffed cabbage rolls are Polish gołabki which is the same as sarma in many other eastern European lands; it is also found in Greece.
