Brooklyn – Brighton Beach
306 Brighton Beach Ave (bet. Brighton 3rd and Brighton 4th Sts.)
Brooklyn, NY 11235
One of Brighton Beach's old-school Russian restaurants, Cafe Arbat traffics in comforting, home-style Russian cuisine—meat dumplings, borschts, beef stroganoff, pickled veggies, pierogies and more, as well as a selection of Russian vodkas and wines. Catering to a regular local clientele, Arbat's menus (and many of their waiters) are Russian-only—making this trip to southern Brooklyn feel like a trip across the globe.
