Chicken Kiev, Red Square

The recently retooled menu features Russian-American standards, including this beloved retro dish.

Traditional Eastern European pelmeni, or sour cream dumpling, is contrasted by smoky bacon and Brussels sprouts. The only thing missing? The signature squirt of melted herb butter when you cut into the Kiev.
