Get the pierogi and kolachky makers rolling at the new Babushka's Kitchen location on Sinclair Road in Columbus, OH.

Revive yor memories, reunite your family.

What do you get when a Polish girl from Cleveland meets a restaurateur from Columbus? Two beautiful sons and Babushka’s Kitchen, a Polish heritage restaurant that celebrates growing up in the ethnic neighborhoods of the rust belt, where in cities like Cleveland, Toledo, Buffalo and Chicago grandma’s made pierogi, golabki, sauerkraut and roast pork dinners while children played in the neighborhood and parents worked in the mills, auto plants, bakeries and butcher shops. Families had Sunday dinners, threw great festivals, and pitched in for weddings, births and funerals. All against the back drop of the accordion music and the polka dance. 

In February 2011 Babushka's Kitchen opened on High St in North Columbus. After a year and a half at the High St location we decided we could no longer carry the cost of a building that was too large, too energy inefficient and in a dry precinct. We sought to find a right sized location for our business, that was more energy efficient and was in an area that would allow us to apply for a license to sell beer without having to invest time and money in a ballot issue. That brings us to our new location at 5173 Sinclair Rd. This location is a short mile and a half from the old location and since most of our customers drive more than 3 miles to visit us we believe that the majority of our customer base will follow us. 

Although the restaurant is nearly ready to re-open (dining room is furnished, kitchen equipment purchased), carpeting laid, we are raising funds to make sure we can get the doors open in September.  With the $5,000 we will be able to complete a few required projects to get the doors open.  This includes an upgrade to the fire suppression system in the kitchen and repairs to the walk-in cooler and freezer that are needed.  If more than $5,000 is raised we plan to invest that money in the facility to make the new Babushka's Kitchen even more comfortable.
