We had two types of dumplings, cabbage soup, and pickled vegetables plate. There was also a man that arrived while we were there and played the accordion. Really authentic vibe and great food.

Went here on a Saturday afternoon and had a few horseradish vodka martinis and some lite fare on the covered area of the patio. There was a guy playing music on the bayan, which is the old school Russian version of the accordion. Highly recommend...More
