Zagat's NYC Dining Spotlight Explores Brighton Beach's Authentic Russian Food Scene

Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach neighborhood is well-known for being the most highly concentrated area of Russian, and Eastern European immigrants and descendents in all of New York City.

In this video from our friends at Zagat, watch as editors Molly Moker and editor Billy Lyons head out to the Brooklyn neighborhood to explore its authentic Russian cuisine.

Brighton Beach is a neighborhood with some of the most interesting cuisine in all of New York City. With a strong presence of residents hailing from Russia, Uzbekistan, and Georgia, neighborhood restaurants attract a wide variety of guests with traditional dishes like lamb skewers, caviar, and of course - vodka! Zagat editors Molly Moker and Billy Lyons visited the beach side Brooklyn neighborhood to find out how this unique area has been able to pass on its traditions to a new generation of residents.
