Based on a light supper of a few shared appetizers, the overall impression was favorable. Nothing really grabbed us, but all the dishes were nicely executed and the meal hit the spot on a warm night. I was never there in its Café Europa incarnation, so cant compare.
We ate: a stack of crepes and cured salmon, served with sour cream and capers; several slices of eggplant, grilled and topped with walnuts and a garlicky sauce; 6-8 small sweet peppers, cooked just a bit but still crunchy, in a vinaigrette with a couple asparagus spears and some halved cherry tomatoes; and a Russian composed salad (mostly potato, with other vegetables and bits of chicken). Served with a basket of pretty good rye bread. That and 2 glasses of decent wine came to something like $43 pre-tip. Service was friendly if a bit too eager to take away not-quite-finished plates. The room is small and nice enough, though the tiny bar has a big TV over it (with the sound off). Fellow diners all seemed to be Russian.
Warning: silly menu language, which we decided was amusing. Every item starts with an ADJECTIVE, e.g., DELICIOUS whatever (of course Ive forgotten all the good onesexcept FETED, hmm).
