Review
4.5/5
Having taken a trip a few years ago to Croatia and Slovenia, I was curious about Manhattan’s first Slovenian-American restaurant on the Upper West Side. I arranged to meet a friend at Pekarna Slovenian American Restaurant. Pekarna initially expanded its New American menu to include Slovenian cuisine and has become a popular events venue in its neighborhood.

The food was fresh and fabulous. I added a topping of grilled chicken to sauteed cauliflower, sesame seeds, golden raisins, Calabrian chilies, scallions, croutons to my salad entree and almond sauce.

As I was ready to leave the restaurant, I noticed their hosting of Alice in Wonderland: An Immersive Cocktail Experience. It was irresistible, and I went to take photos of the event. Fun indeed! They were serving Mocktails!

I highly recommend Pekarna. Check their events schedule to see if you’d like to attend when you go. Excellent cuisine and fun events!

It is a demanding production in which to perform eight times weekly, and the themes are violent, abusive, and demanding on every actor.
