Second Tasting Menu

Borscht – A Russian classic and staple. A sweet beet soup usually topped with sour cream. Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten Free

Matzo Ball Soup – A Jewish classic chicken soup with carrot, sweet potato, celery and the most delicious dumpling! Vegetarian and Gluten Free (w/out matzo balls) options available

Gefilte Fish – Another of the Jewish classics, often eaten on the Sabbath. If you haven’t tried it yet, now is the time! (GF)

Salted Herring Plate – Eaten across Eastern Europe for a breakfast or a snack daily, this dish should satisfy your savory desires. Served with potato and pickles. (GF)

Bread & Pasta
Pelmeni – These cute little Russian dumplings were favored by hunters going on long trips for their durability in cold weather and the heartiness in small servings. Four kinds available - Chicken, Beef, Potato & Red Currant.

Piroshky – Another Russian favorite. This dish is a savory pie with a cabbage filling.

Challah – This braided bread is eaten on Shabbat to remind us of how interconnected we all are. And, it’s quite delicious!

The Tasty!
Zucchini Caviar Salad – No, there’s no fish eggs in here, just delicious veggies. This tasty Russian spread is most excellently enjoyed atop some challah! (GF and Vegetarian)

Hamentashen – We made them again, just in time for Purim!

Rugalach – A delicious treat made with cream cheese, walnuts and spice.
