We ordered some beer and vodka, the meat, cheese and pickled grapes platter with the Russian egg think of it as a pickled deviled egg. The dumplings we all came for. My girl freind and I went last night and were very impressed with the food, service and venue. And a different train app to get the train time? We rolled ourselves out of the restaurant happy and satisfied and coudlnt' help ourselves writing our first oinline restaurant reviews ever, because seriously this place is the best food i've eaten in uptown! I so want to give this place a four or five star, but maybe on our next visit. Then the reality set in. I went out tonight with my girlfriend tonight without plans to eat at Hammer and Sickle and found ourselves eating a divine selection of plates.
Being a resident of uptown, I'm used to the variety of bars but hammer n sickle is above and beyond. That is all we tried. Horrible way to start off. It clearly was just what they were hoping for. The bathrooms are super clean.
Try the honeybee cocktail, my favorite! The place was semi full on a Thursday night and only one waiter, with a newbie shadowing her. They come on a bed of loose seasoned rice and, frankly, their cousins in the fatherland would find them a little anemic. I am more of a novice when it comes to this type of cuisine but there was one thing that resonated with me, it needs just a little more acid. The escarrgo were removed from the shell and cook in a galic parmesan cheese mixture that was light and not overbearing. And no matter how old you are, it is always Date Night! A few beet converts were won over that night. They feel lush and generous, the perfect ambassadors of Russian hospitality.
Or would they play the joke all the way through to the end with Cold War paraphernalia and kitschy costumes? Meals come as large or small plates including stroganoff, chicken kiev, barbecue lamb skewers, and a variety of pierogi. They need to clone her. We also ordered two large plates.

Such a long wait for water and menus. We purchase Living Social coupons to try new venues. These are tossed with oil and vinegar and everything turns luscious and pink. . The fish plate was okay. In the future and there will be may future meals for us at the hammer and sickle.
The only taste was the dipping sauce. With Moovit, we have all your public transit options in one easy-to-use free app. We will either order small plates or large plates. Then the reality set in. A modern open bar with a warm feel. The handful of cocktails we tried were fine, just fine, bordering on forgettable: a too-sour gimlet, a too-sweet take on the Manhattan, a competently made Moscow mule above. Inside of both the traditional and asian perogis tasted the same and could only be described as mush.
Our goal is to provide excellent quality food and cocktails in a stylish, modern, but most importantly; comfortable setting. She was an amazing waiter. We would come back for this platter and a beer. We ordered some beer and vodka, the meat, cheese and pickled grapes platter with the Russian egg think of it as a pickled deviled egg. Husband and I liked all the unique flavors in each dish; nothing over-powered the other. Don't miss out on the fun! We were excited about the menu.
About Hammer and Sickle Hammer and Sickle serves updated versions of old-country meals, all prepared from scratch. We finished with a lobster stroganoff, each bite piled with succulent lobster with mushrooms in cream sauce piled on fresh spaetzle that were just perfect.

Regardless of when a craving hits, the kitchen, open until 2 a. She was an amazing waiter.
