Wall Street Spa

I finally got around to trying the cuisine at the Wall St. Spa at 88 Fulton St that Jim had mentioned in one of his (What Jim Had for Dinner)entries. Had the fried potatoes which were sublime. Swimming in a dill/butter sauce they were covered in nicely sauteed mushroom/onion mixture. Also the Siberian Pelmeny were nicely peppered little dumplings again floating
in that dill/butter pool. It was all quite good but we were the only two people in there so it was eerily silent. It definately seemed like they weren't use to customers coming expressedly for the restaurant. The Cherry vernikes were the only disappointment as the dough that surrounded the little
fruit dumplings was a bit thick and tough.

Call ahead to make sure the cook is in(usually after 2pm). Also print out Jim's entry as I was unable to remember the name of the specialty beverage of the house(Kvass) and they had no idea what I was talking about from my description, there was a distinct language problem but the hostess was friendly. She wouldn't give me any sour cherry juice either. She said they only had orange, apple, and something similarly pedestrian and then only in the spa itself.

Enjoy.
Frank
