2nd Dinner Destination-Russia/A­rmenia

  • Dec 19, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note that this is a repeat event of the one taking place on December 11th. Be sure that you are not on the attending list for both events.

Dinner Destination is a monthly event which allows us to explore the multitude of ethnic foods available in the St. Louis area. Along with trying some new dishes, we will also discuss various aspects of the culture in the countries we "visit."

Our visit this month will allow for our transition from Asia to Europe. Dvin is a quaint little spot tucked away in Webster Groves which serves a combination of Russian and Eastern European cuisine in a very cozy atmosphere. Check out there menu

 

From the RFT:

"Blink and you'll pass right by this itsy-bitsy storefront restaurant and its down-home delicious Eastern European offerings. Gyros, blintzes, hummus, chicken Kiev -- all the classics of Greek, Armenian and Russian cuisines comprise the menu, as well as curious additions like Armenian dip (kidney beans, bits of fried white onion and sesame seeds, like a refried-bean dip with more integrity) and Ukranian-style goulash, which foregoes Hungary's sour cream and buttery noodles for a light, flavorful herb-based broth. The mother-daughter team running the joint -- Mom owns the place and cooks, daughter waits tables -- may come off as standoffish in that humorless, behind-the-Iron-Curtain way, but don't be intimidated. Besides, the food is imbued with enough love to make up for it."

RSVP's for this event will close at noon the day of the event. If you are on the waitlist, please be sure to check your status up until that time to see if you made it on to the event.

This event does have limited attendance, therefore the attendance policy applies.

    The food I had was delicious. This place is so small and cozy that I've been traveling past it for 13 years and didn't even know it was there. Great conversation and people to enjoy this meal with too.

      I love the borscht, but when I went we tried a bunch of things and shared and there wasn't anything that I didn't think was delicious!
