The atmosphere of this restaurant is really unique, as it is decorated with all kinds of memorabilia. The food was fantastic and we got to enjoy live Klezmer music. Our server was truly delightful and this evening was a highlight of our trip.

It is like stepping into your great grandmothers apartment. Dark, filled with artifacts and atmosphere. The food is good but good enough. Get the herring and vodka and the cold soup. Also the piogrogies were good.

Great jewish food (I tasted half of the menu and everything was delicious) and terrific atmosphere! P.s. May be a little hard to find because of the historic shop sings instead of the restaurant's name on the facade.

Best way to contact them is through their facebook page. That is how we booked and they responded quite quickly. Their website is not that user friendly but you can download the menu and covert to English.
