New restaurant find in Cincinnati - Russian

sudiepav | Sep 15, 200207:44 AM

Last Friday, we went out to a new place recommended to my husband by a Russian customer of his. It's called Peters' Burg, and while I don't know Russian food, this was delicious. I had Gulyash, and my husband had Beef Stroganoff. The plates were dressed the same, with a sweet, but spicy, julienned carrot salad, a peppery and good slaw, and a fruit and pepper cold, sweet relish. The beef on each plate, accompanied by plain, but good, mashed potatoes, was quite different, but both wonderful. His was redolent of a wine base, with overtones of good seasoning and sour cream. Mine was definitely paprika based, but the other seasonings, a mystery to us, were really complementary with the beef. This is a tiny place tucked into a shopping center in Blue Ash; the hostess is Russian, and she was assisted by her very polite teenage son, who also spoke heavily accented English. We could see a cook in the back, also. There was Russian music (unobtrusive)playing in the background. We'll go back again soon, mainly because there were other menu items we wanted to try, but as we had moved up the street to Maya's for dessert and coffee and were discussing our meal, we realized that we were not charged for our wine, and we'll need to settle that soon. A nice dinner, and good (or otherwise) ethnic restaurants are few and far between here, tho there seem to be a few more appearing.
