We took a pleasant 30 minute November stroll along the Boardwalk from Coney Island and had lunch at Brighton Beach. We had terrific mushroom soup and decent blinis, pirozhki and stuffed cabbage at a bright formica corner cafe with one woman in the kitchen. Drink vodka or BYOB. Ocean View Cafe, 290 Brighton Beach Avenue, Brooklyn. (718) 332 1900. It is at 4th street (and near the Russian food shops). Open from 10 am 7 days a week.
Now we are wondering about Boardwalk lunches for the summer. Can anyone advise as to what the choices are ? We have found Boardwalk mentions of only Tatiana with puzzling references to better and worse food in the different parts.
