Good Russian food served in an old house that adds to the experience. Menu offers both Russian and Jewish cooking, portions are filling and one can overeat. Waiters are pleasant and kid around if you engage them. Food met all our expectations and brought back many childhood memories. Went back a second night with a friend and she too enjoyed the experience. It was a good change from German food and we would recommend Pasternak to all. Make reservations.
All in all we felt like we had gone back to the 50's and the piano player added to that feeling. Last time we ate there it snowed and looking out the window at the snow falling, eating Russian food, being in an old home setting made for a very romantic night.
