There are two prime times at Tatiana's: day and night. Sitting at a boardwalk-side table on a summer afternoon, enjoying the breezes and the views of the Atlantic while eating lunch alfresco, is a quintessential Brighton Beach experience. After dark, a flashier crowd arrives, especially on weekends when Tatiana's hosts an extravagant floor show, with plenty of dancing, costumes, and acrobatics. The menu has a bit of everything: the Ukrainian specialties, like the sweet and savory vareniki, a pierogi-like dumpling that's considered Ukraine's national dish, are especially good, as are the herring, the homemade lox, and the caviar platters. Vodka can be ordered like wine–-by the bottle. No sneakers are allowed in the evenings.
