With the Olympic games headquartered in Sochi, Russia this year, interest in the food and culture of the former Soviet Union has never been higher in the United States…
Moscow 57 – The roving music/food operation of the same name now has a home base on the Lower East Side. A menu filled with regionally influenced “Russian tapas” will accompany the nightly live entertainment here, a project bought to you by chef Seth Goldman, in partnership with Ellen Kaye, whose parents, Faith Stewart-Gordon and Sidney Kaye, owned the fabled Russian Tea Room from 1947 to 1996.
Know before you go: This spot is only open Weds-Sunday.
Order: Pelmeni dumplings, borscht, kebab plate, to drink: “The Bossanova”
