Location right on the beach promenade. Ask to be seated outside and remove the sun umbrella if it's sunny.
Enjoyed a real Russian cuisine in the middle of this Russian enclave in Brooklyn. All things we had and shared - starting with mozzarella julienne, Ukrainian (!) borsch, and finishing with pelmeni and delicious Chicken Kiev, while drinking Kvas (must try: prepared from dry bread, grapes and yeast) and Stolichnaya vodka - were beautifully presented and tasted unbelievably home-prepared-like and good.
Service... Overall very friendly although few times we had to wait or look for the waiter when she disappeared. Found her talking with guests at another table. I actually liked that the service was such "imperfect" - it just made the whole experience so much genuine. Was well worth a half hour ride from Manhattan!
Highly recommended for the food and the experience.
