- Veselka Ukrainian Restaurant opened its doors at this address in 1954, and was owned and founded by Wolodymyr and Olha Darmochwal. It started as a humble neighborhood candy store and newsstand that had a small counter and a few tables where a small selection of Ukrainian food was served. The popularity of these homemade dishes helped Veselka to grow over the years to become a full fledged, beloved restaurant serving a wide variety of homemade Ukrainian and American dishes. Currently owned by the founder's son-in-law, Tom Birchard.
