Moscow 57 is located on the traffic-heavy portion of Delancey near the Williamsburg Bridge, but its dim-lit loungelike setting is Old New York glowy, with a mix of mosaic hanging lamps and candles. Booths line the walls, with wooden two-tops squeezed as close as the space allows (and sometimes closer). The menu, inspired by the Silk Road, focuses on small plates like Mediterranean "bites," which include the excellent Near Abroad Plate (moist feta, sweet medjool dates, dried apricot, fresh mint, almonds, pistachios) and rose-petal-and-mint yogurt served with pita. There’s also standard pub fare, like the Pickle Guys pickle plate (beets, green beans, peppers, and, of course, cucumbers). Larger dishes pull from local purveyors: You’ll find Russ & Daughters whitefish salad, as well as Katz's pastrami on rye. So what’s up with the Russian name? While many dishes nod to Eastern Europe, it refers mostly to the vodka, which is readily available by the shot with housemade infusions (sour cherry, horseradish, dill and pickle, or cardamom fig, to name a few), or mixed into signature cocktails like the spicy M57 Moscow Mule (vodka, lime juice, ginger beer, grated ginger). Considering that an eclectic mix of performers (think jazz, blues, R&B, folk, and world music) grace the stage five nights a week, it’s the vibe that really matters more than the food.


Monday and Tuesday hours, plus lunch, brunch and tea services and an expanded menu to come. Live music Wednesday-Friday, 7 p.m.-11 p.m., Saturday, 8 p.m.-midnight, and Sunday, 7 p.m.-11 p.m.
