    Really unique take on traditional Russian food with a slight twist. I love the пельмени (Russian dumplings) and the beef stroganoff. Try the salo (cured pork fat) if you want to go deep.

    Welcomed in on a frigid evening with shots - can't complain! Cute spot with a delicious modern take on traditional Russian fare.

    got to try the 'chopped' cookie AND the chef was at our table multiple times - deviled eggs were awesome, as was the mushroom stroganoff, will be back, of course!

    Cozy, modern atmosphere and deliciously unique cocktails. Amazing deserts and appetizers; entrees weren't perfect. Would return!

    The house-cured gravlax were a wonderful surprise: chunky yet melt-in-your-mouth tender. Exquisite!
