Modern European

History, culture, and cuisine collide at Veronika, where the precision and style of Old Europe meets the global sensibilities of the modern art world. Perfectly set upstairs at Swedish-based photography museum Fotografiska New York, its name a nod to the patron saint of photography, Verōnika celebrates comforting traditional fare and show-stopping fine dining classics in equal stead, much like the iconic building it calls home. The cuisine draws inspiration from northern France, Austria, and Eastern Europe, in an eco-conscious manner that is reflective of the optimism and joie de vivre of the era.

                                                              First of all, the room is beautiful. It’s got high ceilings, beautiful original architecture and gorgeous lighting. The staff is professional but a little aloof/stiff as if they aren’t sure if they should be engaging or standoffish. I can understand the confusion because Veronika looks and feels like a high-end, fine dining restaurant but some diners seem to think it’s the same as going to dinner at Mickey Dee’s. Since there’s no dress code, diners looking for a special or celebratory night out who don their finest attire are seated next to others who show up in shorts and running shoes. While I understand the need to be inclusive, there’s nothing wrong in having a basic dress code that does not include muscle tees, baseball caps and shorts! The food is good and hearty, but not outstanding. My biggest issue was that the goulash was a bit gummy/pasty. It could use a hint of acid to balance out the dish. The wine list is very good and decently priced with some off-the-beaten-path selections.

                                                              Staff was professional, friendly and accommodating, beautiful bar area and main restaurant with large windows was inviting as well. Food however was less than what was hoped for. Promoted as Eastern European cuisine it was so so. My dining companion who happens to be Eastern European and I both agree it was bland and under seasoned. Will return when in the area for a delightful drink at the bar, but food was underwhelming. Would recommend for drinks and snack at the bar
