We should've noted this earlier, but better late than never, right? Last weeks Village Voice featured Counter Culture: Feta Blizzard, about Bulgara (31-10 11th Street) in Long Island City, Queens.
This is one of just two Bulgarian restaurants left in the city (togeter with Tricolorii in Sunnyside), with the closure of Chinatown's Mehanata back in March.
Though Bulgara "is located in a rat's ass of a neighborhood in Long Island City," the food is deemed more than satisfactory, if the ambience is not. Be forewarned: this is no Mehanata. But if you're hankering for solid Bulgarian fare, you won't go wrong here.
