Tips for you
After seeing all the Russians in town, my wife and I (French-American) decided to try some Russian food for a change. We were not warmly received at first, and to be fair they were packed when we arrived, however after we sat at the bar, we got great service. The bar staff was really cool, notably Phung the funny bartender who was joking with us in English. The Russian soups were really good, as was the meat stew and cocktails. I would gladly go here again.
