    Gracious Old World setting and menu mean eastern Euro hits, from delicate pelmeni (ground beef dumplings) to lush beef stroganoff. Flavored vodkas offer further intrigue; good pretheatre choice. Read more

    ... Она нас угощала блинчиками с мясом, домашними пельменями и собственными настойками, а с собой собрала нам целый пакет десертов. Все безумно вкусно. Интерьер шикарный и дружелюбные официанты!

    Некоторые официанты говорят по русски!) А ассортимент водок, скуден... Нет премиальной русской водки "Белуга". Официанты говорят, что была, но давно уже водки "Белуга" нет.

    Украинский борщ сильно отдает американским кетчупом.
