It’s about that time of year – we’re seriously craving our fav Polish delight! Pierogi are in season people – and a few WNY restaurants are taking the yummy stuffed dumplings to the next level. These restaurants have put their own exciting and unique twist on the dish, and we suggest that you get at them asap.

You’ll notice that the pierogi here are listed on the small plate menu with no description. Your pierogi may be filled with pork and potato, sausage and sauerkraut, pork and onion… it all just depends on the day (aka if you’re the experimental type, this one’s for you). But we can assure you that no matter the day, you’ll be thoroughly impressed with their authentic European version of the plate.

Pierogi is available as an app and entrée here (anyone else down for a two-course pierogi meal?). For starters, they’ve got two variations to choose from- we’ll let the descriptions speak for themselves. First up, is their appetizer, “’rogies & roasted tomatoes” aka their house-made potato and cheese pierogi with roast-ed heirloom tomatoes, spinach, sauteed onion. The entree option is the “pork and pierogi” aka two of their house-made, farm’s cheese stuffed pierogi simmered with bacon, pulled pork, collard greens, tomato and butter beans, chicken jus(can we get an amen?!).

For those in the Southern Tier, EBC is your spot for pierogi! Considered a local favorite, EBC’s pierogi are locally sourced potato pierogi, sautéed in brown butter. Theey are then served with sautéed red and green bell peppers and sweet onions topped with creme fraiche and bacon.
