My husband and I ate at Trakia when they first opened, their pizza is excellent, and so are the Eastern European dishes.  We will be back to try more...

That's it! A celebration of (organic) New York style pizza together with traditional Eastern European home cooking, with dishes from Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, and the states of the former Yugoslavia (potentially all 7 - Slovenia, Macedonia, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, and Bosnia - or just some?).

The Eastern European dishes looked most interesting to me and I look forward to trying some of them very soon. Wishing you much success!

Hey Mark,

Thanks for the compliments, I think! :)

Ok So what we are trying to do is fuse our traditional home cooking with our love for new york style pizza.  We are from various different countries but grew up here in Queens New York.  SO, we have Oraganic New York Style Pizza, and dishes from Bulgaria, Ex Yugoslavia, Romania, Turkey and we create special dishes on a daily biases so its hard to pin point a specific cuisine! 

Best I can offer is bunch of eastern european guys who grew up in queens making food they love!!

I just passed by Trakia yesterday and was VERY intrigued looking at the menu. I couldn't remember the name (in English) of the restaurant and couldn't tell it from the otherwise very cool take-out menu!

You're doing something very interesting and unusual there at Trakia. I think it would be helpful for you to explain the types of cuisine being offered and cultures represented there. I bet that lots of us who are not knowledgeable would be very interested to learn more!

I've ordered from them like a dozen times and while it looks nice i always seem to pass by and end up and blackbirds. All their salmon dishes are amazing but skip the butternut squash soup
