Philadelphia's diverse dining scene rarely features Polish cuisine beyond old-school, homestyle offerings. Little Walter fills this gap with Chef Brenfleck's elevated approach, inspired by his family roots and passion for bringing Polish flavors into the modern culinary spotlight.

Forget heavy, old-fashioned dishes. Little Walter's teases diners with:

  • Pierogi Ruskie: Classic potato and farmer's cheese dumplings, a must-try.
  • Kielbasa Zwyczajna: Expect a flavorful twist on this Polish sausage staple.
  • Housemade Sourdough Rye: The perfect bread for sopping up those delicious sauces!
  • Golabki, Kotlet Schabowy, and More: Explore a range of traditional dishes with Chef Brenfleck's modern touch.

The fun continues with the beverage program! Little Walter's features imaginative craft cocktails named after Polish professions and incorporating spirits and liqueurs native to Poland. Look out for drinks like the Piłkarz (Footballer) pickle juice martini – bound to be a conversation starter!
