THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sasha's Lounge Restaurant Review

: Who needs Moscow nightlife when this red-and-white bedecked S-shaped lounge is just a subway ride away in Midtown? Come for the vodka drinks infused with lychee, mango, cranberry and other fruits; stay to gawk at a scene that can only be witnessed in Brooklyn's Brighton Beach or a real Russian metropolis. Patrons lounge on chic but cozy banquettes, and kids in this season's club gear make some noise in the sunken back room (which becomes a VIP lounge on weekends).
