In Russian fairy tales, the firebird is a mythical creature of rare beauty, and Firebird Russian Restaurant aims to capture that spirit with its exquisite Russian feasts set in a bright, artistic atmosphere. Colorful artwork from local and foreign Russian artists lines the walls of the dining room, where you can try hot and cold appetizers such as salmon caviar or golubtsi—beef and rice rolled in cabbage—before digging in to vareniki dumplings or blini pancakes with meat and cheese. Sip on fruit kompot or kvas, a fermented beverage made from rye bread, which complement to hearty entrées of claypot lamb stew, pickled herring, or buttery chicken Kiev, or visit the full bar and peruse their selection of Russian vodkas. An apple strudel or cherry-stuffed blintz, like a lullabye sung by a choir of babies, can help end your night on a sweet note.
