I am a huge fan of Cheburechnaya (Uzbek/Bukharian meat fest in Rego Park). I have read a lot about Salute, and have tried to go there on two occasions but have not succeeded - both times it was packed, and the staff was less than courteous and was not willing to even tell us how long we would have to wait for a table. I have half a mind to give up - Cheburechnaya rocks my world, I've never had a problem getting a table (it's huge), and the servers know me at this point and practically bring out the lamb testicles before I have to ask for them. But there's still a lingering doubt in my mind- am I missing out on something incredible at Salute? Do I owe it to myself to give it another chance?
