Austinites, say a hearty Texan ????????????! to the Russian House restaurant, opening this summer on Fifth Street downtown. From their official website:
At The Russian House NaZdorovye, we offer the finest authentic dishes prepared by our award- winning executive chef Vladimir Gribkov, whose specialties include homemade classic Russian such as Pelmeni, soups as Borsch and Solyanka.In the spirit of cultural edification, they'll actually have a little Russian house inside the restaurant, and patrons will be able to dress up in traditional Russian clothing for photos. The fact that they'll have a full bar with "virtually any Russian vodka" will probably help with that. An exact opening date hasn't yet been announced.
