Lunch with Chef Judi: The Russian House

Who ever would have thought quick-serve works for a Russian restaurant? At this new Sarasota gem, formerly a short-lived cheese steak place, is authentic and family run.

Pierogis, dumplings, Borsht, honey cake , stroganoff and more. Grandma's own recipes and everything is from scratch.

The Russian House is located at 6115 S. Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, just a few blocks north of Stickney Point Road.
