Hours:SATURDAY7:00AM to 11:00PM

The best restaurant recommendations we get typically come from The Infatuation community. When real people (AKA not publicists) feel compelled to send us unsolicited emails about how good a restaurant is, nine times out of ten they're right. That's how we wound up in Windsor Terrace, at a restaurant that we'd never heard of, and we're betting you haven't heard of it either. Krupa Grocery has never been mentioned on GrubStreet and there was certainly no first look on Eater. Word is spreading about this neighborhood gem the old school way: word of mouth.

Krupa Grocery review image

Krupa Grocery is the neighborhood restaurant every neighborhood wishes they had. A small operation with friendly people, incredible tap beers, an impressive, well priced wine list, and food that competes at the highest level. Each dish that comes out of the Krupa kitchen is better than the next, with subtle nuances to each that suggest cook game proper. The house made gnudi with corn and onions is absolutely ridiculous, and the skate po boy is one of the best things we've had all year. Windsor Terrace, who knew? All of you baby toting Park Slope-ians best be paying attention here - this is the best thing to happen to your lives since Al Di La.

Food Rundown

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Krupa is open for breakfast daily (except Tuesdays, when they are closed) and for brunch on the weekends, and they have a nice portion of the dinner menu available then to, so you can eat non-egg related food if you so choose. The ricotta pancakes are no joke. A small stack topped with plum jam, this is not a move you will regret.

Breakfast Gnocchi

Speaking of breakfast moves you won't regret, here's another one. That's right, pasta for breakfast. You'll run it off later. House made potato dumplings with a fried egg, bacon lardons and toasted breadcrumbs. Who needs a nap?

Salt Cod Croquettes

Fried dough balls filled with a potato lemon puree that are way better than your average croquette. The inside is like a thick potato soup. This is a good way to kick things off.

Burrata & Smoked Panzanella

God damn, bread salads are underrated. Especially when they're loaded with fresh burrata, and soaked, smoked breadcrumbs. The impressive part to this dish, and to each dish we tried at Krupa, is the attention to detail: fennel is roasted, peaches are roasted, kale is soaked in pesto. Clearly, they put the time and effort in, and you can taste it.

House-made Gnudi

When we got an email from Gabrielle, who's the good solider who suggested Krupa to us, it was specifically the gnudi she was losing her mind about. She was right. The house-made small pasta dumplings are perfect, and the stew they come in - made of roast corn, cippolini, charred scallion, and spicy Panko breadcrumbs - is mind-blowingly good.

P.E.I. Mussels

A giant pot of mussels with much more going on than your typical pot of mussels. Lamb pancetta, a ton of Schezuan peppercorn and a whole bunch of chilies. It's spicy, it's peppery, and the broth is perfect for country toast dunking. We'll be ordering these again.

Hunters Sausage

A hefty slice of sausage accompanied by some nicely cooked up kale and beer cheese toast, which is made with cream cheese, Guinness, and some other flavorful stuff. It's pretty good, but we'll probably skip this one next time considering all the other options to choose from.

Crispy Skate Po-Boy

Dear Krupa Grocery. I know you change your menu a lot, but this should never leave. Ever. It's too good. This beautiful thing is not so much a classic po boy, but more of a fried fish sandwich from heaven. Words can't really do this thing justice, you just need to get your mouth on it.
