Went to Firebird with my sweetie for Valentine's Day. The restaurant has some cute cozy decor, and for Valentine's Day they decorated with some festive heart shaped balloons (received 2 balloons at the end of the night, spasiba!) etc.
I really miss my Baba's pelmeni, and I wanted to try their vareniki, so my date & I ordered 1 plate of each and split them (the restaurant wouldn't do half pelmeni & half vareniki on one plate). They were very good! We also split an appetizer of zhulien which was excellent. The waiter also suggested that their golubtsi was their house specialty and we tried that too, it was very good. Sliced bread was also offered.
Because I wanted to try a variety, we didn't order dinner entrees. In fact I took some of the zhulien home. Note that their entrees are ordered European style, which means that you order vegetables separately as a side dish. Next time I want to try their blini.
In typical Russian style, a few items on their menu were not available. :-) The couple running the place were very nice. You can make reservations via OpenTable.com, which we did, but it's not clear whether OpenTable shows all the availability. If you don't see the time you like then call them.
