Our store had a humble beginning back in 1970 when Julian Baczynsky opened his little Ukrainian butcher store in the East Village. It was his life-long dream to own a business and have a slice of the American Dream.
Our mission from the start has been to bring old-world comfort food to the bustling streets of NYC. We do this by providing fresh cold-cuts, premium cuts of meat, succulent smoked hams, and the best Eastern European products in the city. Our specialty is our smoked sausage (kielbasa), which is prepared fresh everyday and then smoked in our kitchen.
We have a passion for serving food and serving the community. Our store is cut from a different cloth; we put our heart and soul into our work. This passion stems from Mr. Baczynsky’s story of hard work, perseverance, and love.
