Russian stuff on Avenue U in Brooklyn?

Buford | Feb 27, 2005 01:19 PM

A recent article in the New York Times (linked below) sings the praises of Avenue U in Brooklyn, which it describes as "a four-mile thoroughfare of austere Russian restaurants, kosher delis and huge diners with bewildering multipage menus offering everything from cottage cheese to twin lobster tails". I'm familiar with the amazing Russian shops along Brighton Beach Boulevard, but Avenue U is new to me. Can anyone tell me where are the cross streets where this epicenter of Russianness begins and ends, which of its establishments are the leading chow landmarks, and what is the best way to get to these places on the subway? I greatly appreciate your help.
