Brighton Russian restaurant/cabaret for bday celebration

Susan Gifford | Dec 9, 2003 06:49 PM

My brother, a Russophile, is turning 50 January 1st and coming to New York to celebrate. My husband suggested one of the Brighton Beach restaurants, which I thought was a great idea until I remembered the food the one time I went to Primorski (admittedly, about 20 years ago). Do any of these places have especially good or bad food? If they're all about the same, foodwise, are there some that are less likely to completely freak out his kids (teenagers) and our parents? Or should we just go for the most extreme experience possible? Any names of restaurants would be appreciated. Thanks!
