The Sheepshead Bay outpost of hit Ukrainian eatery Cafe Glechik looks like it’s almost ready to open its doors. Decor is up on the walls and the dining area looks complete. When we stopped by last week the owner was there, who confirmed they were preparing to throw a grand opening celebration, but couldn’t say when.
The 1655 Sheepshead Bay Road storefront is the second location for Cafe Glechik. The original Brighton Beach establishment at 3159 Coney Island Avenue was featured on Anthony Bourdain’s Travel Channel show.
According to Grub Street, the owner flew to the Ukraine to cull decor. From what can be seen from the street, the two-level cafe looks tasteful, clean, and cozy. We’re looking forward to ordering a bowl of pelmeni when opening day rolls around.
