Foursquare Tips

  • The vodka flight
  • One of the best Russian restaurants in the country~and I would know! Absolutely have the carrot salad! :)
  • Try the delicately thin-skinned pelmini, Russian dumplings stuffed w/ a ground mix of beef & lots of onions. Or any of the Ukrainian vareniky, dumplings filled with pumpkin, asparagus or potato.
  • If you don't have the stroganoff you will be punished. Seriously though, it's good.
  • Clapping with the music is not only allowed, it's encouraged.
  • .
  • horseradish vodka
  • This place is really good! Of course it doesn't compare to my mothers cooking, but it's worth a try!;)
  • The Boscht is amazing. The Lamb Samsa appetiser is absolutely delicious. Try the vodka flights, they're lots of fun.
  • Not sure if I'm just not funny but they do not take kindly to Crimean jokes....great vodka though.
