Like most good eateries in Wedding, this prized Polish eatery is off the beaten path. Pierogarnia doesn’t leave much to the imagination with the name and it doesn’t need to.

The menu is rife with other Polish treats like specialty beer and classic yet creative soups. The cozy interior is made to feel like a living room with couches and armchairs. Live music often acts as a background to the meal, as the back room doubles as a venue and adds to the laid-back feel.
