Cracovia celebrated a decade of serving great Polish and Eastern European cuisine in 2018, when we named it Denver's best German/Eastern European restaurant, but its menu has always been worthy of celebration for those seeking out traditional soups, sausages, peirogi and other hearty and heartwarming dishes. Beets and cabbage play big parts, whether in tightly rolled golabki (cabbage rolls) stuffed with pork and rice, deep-red barszcz soup or a side of braised sauerkraut. Peruse the special connoisseur's menu for more unusual offerings, like duck-blood soup, kiszka (blood-and-buckwheat sausage) or golonka — a pork hock roasted to a crackly finish. Evening entertainment adds a touch of goofy, old-world charm, and Polish beers add to the good cheer. Raise a glass and say "Na zdrowie!" to another ten years of Cracovia.
