THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Roxolana Restaurant Review

: Ukrainian restaurants don’t tend to be among the trendiest in town, but their old-world comfort foods are usually welcome additions to the dining scene, particularly in cooler months. In this casually distinguished dining room with gracious service, consider beginning with a crock of borscht or seafood in puff pastry with vodka-dill cream sauce. For entrées, guests tuck into favorites like vareniki (dumplings stuffed with cabbage or meat), golubtsy (stuffed cabbage rolls), chicken Kiev, or a marinated, boiled leg of lamb called shashlik. For the most part, the kitchen presents a flattering picture of this enchanting yet relatively undiscovered cuisine. For dessert, there are crêpes or an intriguing red wine mousse, and the wine list ranges from Germany to France to the Republic of Georgia.
