Pelmeni, Forte European Tapas Bar & Bistro

Although it’s called a tapas bar, Forte’s forte is its way with Eastern European dishes, especially since there’s a whole section titled “From Russia With Love.” Pelmeni, traditional handmade Russian meat dumplings, are boiled and served with a healthy helping of sour cream. It’s hearty fare that pairs well with shots of vodka. $7.50, 4180 S. Rainbow Blvd., Suite 806, 220-3876.
