Pierogies attract me like a moth to the flame, and even though the Russian word for pierogi is vareniki, the Eastern European dumpling still commanded my attention. I sampled the potato vareniki, which came drenched in butter with browned onions and sour cream. The portion was enormous. I prefer my pan-fried pierogies a little more crisp, but these were still very tasty. The vareniki also seemed to be a little heavier on the black pepper than its Polish cousin.
There are a few other vegetarian options on the menu. There are a number of salads. There are also cherry, cabbage and farmer's cheese vareniki. The menu does seem to lack protein for vegetarians (with the exception of the cheese vareniki), so caveat emptor.
The menu also features Russian desserts and drinks including Kvas, a Russian non-alcoholic (or more properly, low alcohol) malt beverage fermented with yeast that I will have to sample at a future date. It is an Eastern European drink consumed in a similar fashion to the way Americans drink Coke.
