In the space of the recently closed Saint (you know, the triangular building that was painted turquoise, then fuchsia), the team behind Independent Pizzeria has opened Dacha Diner, an airy, light-filled restaurant serving comforting Eastern European and Jewish cuisine. That means delicate blintzes filled with farmer's cheese, platefuls of crispy latkes, borscht, matzo ball soup, and more. If you're looking to up your yolk porn quotient on Instagram, order the khachapuri—a Georgian specialty consisting of a boat-like bread brimming with fluffy cheese and butter and a runny egg that you mix into it with a fork, then tear apart with your hands and devour.
