Russian House

You’d think, being the only Russian restaurant in town, this place could slack off and phone it in. But, nyet, Vladimir Gribkov and Varda Salkey create such a tasty, authentic menu that not even overindulging with their bar’s 100-plus vodkas could make you forget that they’re dedicated to doing it up – borscht and all – just right.
