Cool Springs is a long way from Mother Russia, but the sprawling suburb recently welcomed a menu fit for a Romanov. Taste of Russia offers a repertoire of Russian cuisine, as well as traditional items from the Ukraine and Poland. Open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and 11 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Sundays, Taste of Russia serves borsch, beef stroganoff, Kiev cutlets and dumplings stuffed with cabbage, potatoes and farmer's cheese. Don't miss the list of flavored vodkas, including cranberry, citron and honey pepper.
Taste of Russia is located at 101 Shingle Way, off Caruthers Parkway (phone: 472-1432). As always, if you get there before we do, please report back on Bites.
