You’ll get a “Zdravstvujte” before a “Hello” at this serene Russian waterfront spot, a ten-minute boardwalk stroll from bustling Coney Island. The casual, beach-friendly sibling to nearby Tatiana Restaurant has pages upon pages of Eastern European staples, like cold green borscht and puffy pelmeni dumplings. For a refreshing choice after a day at the beach, opt for the beet salad—al dente cubes of root vegetable with ruffles of arugula, crunchy walnut halves and creamy goat cheese in a light vinaigrette. Sporting ship wheels and novelty anchors, the restaurant unsurprisingly features plenty of seafood—delicate slips of rosy, raw salmon, simply topped with a handful of salty kalamata olives, are a highlight.
