Treat yourself this Friday to a meal of pierogis followed by cheesecake. East Village icons Veselka and Veniero’s Pasticceria & Caffe, the Ukrainian restaurant that started in 1954 and the Italian bakery that opened in 1894 respectively, will both reopen for takeout and delivery on May 1. Eater spotted the news on Veniero’s Instagram that the bakery will reopen for takeout, delivery, and curbside pickup. Likewise, Veselka posted on their Instagram that they will open for takeout and delivery.

In normal times, Veselka serves up a staggering 21,000 pierogis, 2,500 latkes, and 110 gallons of borscht each week. They closed on March 18th, but as of Friday, they’ll be offering a limited menu of their all-time favorites, which we can assume will include a selection of their famous pierogis.

Veniero’s is in its fourth generation of family ownership and serves more than 150 desserts in their historic storefront. They closed on March 28, and to get ready for Friday’s reopening, they are offering pre-ordering for some of their favorite treats. They also offer nationwide shipping on cheesecakes, cannoli, and Italian cookies.

As 6sqft reported earlier today, the East Village Community Coalition launched an interactive map of businesses that are open throughout the neighborhood.
