For a change from weeknight dinners in diverse neighborhoods, let's have a Sunday dinner in New York City's "least diverse" neighborhood, Midwood, home to the City's only Moldovan restaurant.
Moldova the country is in far, far away Eastern Europe, between Romania and the Ukraine. Moldova the restaurant is in far, far away Brooklyn, between Flatbush and Sheepshead Bay.
Make your way to Woody Allen's old neighborhood to discover the subtle charms of this "Sleeper" cuisine in a festive restaurant with rustic "Interiors".
The proposed menu:
Placinte "Ileana Cosinzeana": Pastries with farmer cheese and dill
Colunasi "Fat Frumos": Dumplings
Salata din Limba: Veal tongue, tomato and cucumber salad
Muraturi: Assorted pickles
Mititei: Skinless beef sausages
Carp: Fried carp
Costita: Pork chops
Mamaliga: Cornmeal mush served with cheese and sour cream
The final bill, including tax and tip, for the meal will be divided equally among the diners. You will be responsible for the cost of any drinks and individual desserts that you order. The estimated cost per diner is $20-30. Cash only. Please bring small bills.
Seating is limited to one table. Please only RSVP “Yes” if you will attend. If your plans change, please update your RSVP.
