The busy, bare bones dining room of Cafe Euroasia is unremarkable, but the Russian-Ukranian food is quite good and the service is friendlier than many other Brighton Beach restaurants. The only vegetarian items are in the hot and cold appetizer sections, but there is plenty to make a filling meal. The assorted pickle plate is a great version of the type; nothing surprising, but the pickled green tomatoes were especially good. For a more hearty and filling dish I got the Julienne with mushrooms — sliced mushrooms and onions cooked in cream, then baked with cheese on top. Both the pickles and the mushrooms were great with a half order of the warm almost Turkish-style bread, puffy and crusty on the outside but flat in the middle.
