kholodets fish aspic in Austin: Who's been to the Russian House?

Any early reports of our first Russian restaurant and their meat jellies ?? East fifth downtown. Austin eater did a short piece on it and apparently there are russian school, KGB, etc. uniforms you can try on in the lobby and kitsch rugs are hanging everywhere. The bar is referred to as homey. The meat jellies alone paired with infused vodka shots of myriad types for happy hour are tres inticing. Plenty of steamed and baked dough type pockets with varied stuffings load the menu. It's the gnarly stuff that has me grinning. One description of a beef soup dish is that the tendon melts and thickens the soup. perfect. vodka shot with a caviar chaser? welcome, Russian House, hopefully more will be written and it will be good. Is this town equipped to handle Russian Food ? I know I'm equipped to try it this weekend. Will report.
