Stage Restaurant on 2nd Avenue near St. Mark’s Place was founded by Roman Diakun in 1980 and had only one long lunch counter where you could sit and eat their #Ukrainian comfort food.
Even though though Stage was forced to close in 2016 after a landlord dispute, we featured its former home in our latest YouTube video: UKRAINIAN FOOD TOUR.
