Make your way through the beat of a Russian nightclub in the front, to find yourself in a quaint dining room in back. Contemporary Russian cuisine encompasses French, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean influences, which can be found here in the form of Maniti (meat dumplings) and golubtsy (stuffed cabbage). The Ukranian borsch is not to be missed.
Nightclub meets little-old-lady quaint at the delicious, ambitious Russian House
