Cafe Assorti Revisited

So, looking for the best borscht inside the beltway? Actually, I can't say that it's the best as I've only tried it here, but it was pretty good. View of the main dining room.

This is the view from the bar

This is a view of the bar. Full cocktail availablity. I'm sure there will be some folks tossing back vodka here in the wee hours.

The grab'n go counter.

View from the back of the dining room.

So here's the skinny. The sisters/cousin/mother who own this place are from Kazakhstan. They are the nicest folks you're likely to run across in this business.

The food is definitely Eastern European comfort food. Lots of meat/potato/cheese baked in pastry.

Some of the things are tastier than others, but to some, it's going to taste like home.

This is their signature dish, The Meat Pie.
The dishes are mostly served a la carte, so you can get a couple of little things to try. Be sure to wash it down with a nice shot Stoli.
Until next time, which will be an expose of a truffle orgy at Vidalia.
Thanks for reading.
