We tried the $15 lunch special at this new black and red decked out Russian restaurant. It was a hankering for Soviet nostalgia and borsch that brought us there. The special consisted of a salad, soup and entrée (Oli and I took a lunch special each to sample the Olivier & Russian Salad, borsch & chicken meatballs soup and mushroom zrazi & chebureki) and righteously filled our bellies. It’s unpretentious home cooking food that makes you feel happy it’s cold and grey outdoors. No soviet flashback is done proper without modeling actual soviet era military wear, especially in cotton candy pink.
