Lunch in the D: Ivanhoe Polish Yacht Club

Alessandro and I had a restaurant.com certificate to redeem, so I chose a place we had never been before:  the Ivanhoe Polish Yacht Club.

We ate lunch there last month and it was fabulous!  

First of all, this is the Polish Yacht Club.

The neighborhood is awesome in a vacant kind of way.  

Off the bat, you notice the decor, which has not been changed since the beginning of time.

Alessandro loved this Abe Lincoln print.  And I just couldn't stop staring at the pic underneath it.  What's actually going on there?  I'm still not sure.  

We both ordered the polish sampler.  You start with a mug of chicken noodle soup.

Then get a plate of their famous coleslaw and pickles.

Then you're really full and you get your meal.  We both got the Polish sampler even though we could have split it.  But we had to spend a minimum of $25 in order to use our certificate, so we splurged. 

The pierogies, polish sausage and sauerkraut, potato pancakes and thick cut fries were all absolutely delicious.  Alessandro particularly loved the sausage...said it was some of the best he's had.  (Maybe he only felt that way because we've been meat deprived lately?.  It was really good though).  

We were previously Polonia people, but I think this meal made us devout Ivanhoe Polish Yacht Club people for our Polish food needs.  We'd definitely recommend IPYC for Polish food in the D.

Anyone have any other Polish restaurant recommendations or good (or bad) experiences at IPYC?
