    Great classic Eastern European menu, including kielbasa, kasha and these fine looking verinikis. The staff is super friendly and they've got some great, unique breakfast/brunch options.

    Good Eastern European comfort food. Doesn't get enough credit. Super nice staff and owners and great cocktails. Live music on Fri nights

    All the food is great. Service is great, too. Calm and open space. Love the latkes and the fish sandwich. Try the birch juice.

    The menu starts with a gathering of Eastern European staples like tender-skinned vareniki topped with a tangle of caramelized onions and a spoon of sour cream, herb-flecked latkes, and hearty soups. Read more

    The beef stew is awesome. Come with a pile of cabbage and vegetables. Great good old comfort food. Check out the wide range of ice-cream flavors. There's one called "Killer Chocolate". Read more

    Always good for vegan and gluten free. Borscht and gluten free potato pancakes are my go-to

    The Kale & Collard Greens soup is perfect simplicity. Just like your babushka used to make. Don't expect a salty, overly seasoned assault on the palate like most restaurants in the neighborhood.

    Others have mentioned dumplings and latkes, but the ice cream also deserves mention for quality and unusual flavors. Afternoon service friendly.

    Service isn't amazing, but I still like the staff. Makes you relax a bit. Try the latkas. Lattes = exceptional.

    Russian meat dumplings are awesome, and a great deal. We ordered about half the menu and it was all great.

    Went today for the first time since the construction and it is really pretty inside now. Sadly, no more ice cream -- they have a few but not my favorite salty pretzel anymore :(

    The meat dumplings have an amazing spiced beef mixture. And they give you a ton for 8 bucks.
