I was hoping to make a Saturday nite out of dinner and dancing in Brighton Beach. From a search on Chowhound I found Gambrinus, Rasputin and Primorsky's for decent club dining and if we choose to do the cafe route I found positive posts on Tatyana Cafe and Espresso Cafe.
Any suggestions from 'hounds familiar with the area would be greatly appreciated. We are going to be 3 couples. Is it possible to eat in one of the cafes and then walk over to one of the clubs for drinks and dancing? Any particular specialties to order?
