Russia and America have a long and sordid history of culinary conflicts, from the decades-long Cold Cut War to Putin’s ongoing resistance to export Siberia’s vast reserves of stroganoff. Stick a fork in long-waged battles with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Russian-American fare at Irina’s Restaurant and Bar in Urbandale.

Irina's menu offerings warm bellies with large plates of authentic Russian and American sustenance and a host of Muscovite drinks. Classy appetizers such as mussels in chardonnay butter sauce ($10) and boursin mushrooms stuffed with roasted garlic, herbs, and cream cheese ($8) will whet refined appetites and serve as admirable sidekicks to succulent house specials and pasta dishes. Strike culinary accords with multicultural dishes such as the meaty Moscow filet ($19) and the Russian pork Shashlik, an imperial bayonet loaded with marinated grilled pork ($16). East meets West on tables crowded with beef stroganov ($16) and salmon wellington ($17), two perennial favorites at this inviting family-owned restaurant.

A candlelit bar fully stocked with Russian beers, vodkas, and an extensive wine selection stays open late, with amateur bartenders able to practice their pours on fearless friends after 9 p.m. each night. Cozy booths and a private party room allow fine dining for occasions ranging from quiet date nights to rowdy fur-hat conventions.

Irina’s Restaurant and Bar

Irina’s Restaurant and Bar combines American ingenuity with Russian hardiness in a way not seen since the purchase of Alaska. The eatery’s menu is a melting pot of culinary influences, made evident in the Moscow fillet, a cut of beef stuffed with mushrooms, onions, spinach, and a photograph of Ellis Island. Other examples include Russian pork shashlik skewers or beef stroganoff with Angus beef, peppers, and mushrooms. To wash down meals, the bar—which stretches out across the floor like an elongated wooden horseshoe—is stocked with Russian beers and a lineup of vodkas, served by a trusty barkeep or by your fellow patrons during Immature Bartender Night, held every evening after 9 p.m.

Food was good and service outstanding. They asked us if we had reservations, we didn't but were seated right away on a Friday night. Will go back.
