We decided to try the Eastern European food at Fenix, on the corner of Commerical and Leidesdorff. The interior is very pleasant, with lots of art on the walls and lighting provided by crystal chandeliers. We ordered at the counter and then chose a table. As usual, we ordered two different dishes and shared both.
Our first dish was a pilaf with lamb, which we forgot to take a picture of until we had loaded our plates. The food here is served in foil-lined baskets, but when we told the waitress we were going to share, she immediately brought us ceramic plates.
The pilaf was followed by an order of beef pelmeni. Both dishes were accompanied by a tomato and cucumber salad. The food at Fenix is tasty and well-balanced and if you're in the mood for an Arabian adventure, check them out.
