Zofia’s Kitchen promises comforting Old World cuisine just as we need it most. 

The menu features classic and modern interpretations of pierogi, the dumplings best known for its Polish roots and often filled with meat and potatoes. Zofia’s signature dumplings include the loaded baked potato pierogi with cheddar, chives and bacon; a house-cured and smoked pastrami pierogi with provolone; a crab rangoon pierogi seasoned with Old Bay and an everything bagel pierogi stuffed with cream cheese and lox. 

Sides include the daring latke doughnut: shredded potato and onion formed into a ring and fried, served with lemon-dill sour cream; plus seasonal salads and soups (butternut squash and apple and a lobster bisque with Old Bay hushpuppies). 

Desserts include sweet pierogis— blueberry-lemon-thyme and the seasonal brown sugar-spiked pumpkin “pie-rogi”—and holiday-themed confections, like bourbon chocolate truffles and cranberry pecan rugelach.
