Restaurant Bites

A Fine L'il Chippie

A dream will sort of come true this week for homesick Brits in the form of mushy peas as McBrides, a new fish and chips restaurant, shows off its wares at the Lobster Pot.

McBrides is not slated to actually open until after Christmas. But you can get a $20 plate of cod or plaice and chips with the soft green stuff from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lobster Pot. When McBrides officially opens on Pyatnitskaya Ulitsa, it will have all the trimmings of a typical chippie - fish cakes, pork and beef sausages, pies, pickled eggs and onions, as well as a takeout counter. The food will be cheaper, too, with fish and chips going for only $12.

They're not too sure whether they'll have saveloys yet - so put in a request if you check out the preview.

Fish and chips will be available from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. (and perhaps a bit longer) through Nov. 15 at the Lobster Pot, 9 Karmanyensky Pereulok, 937-3527. Nearest metro: Smolenskaya.

Tour Asia - in Moscow

Le Club's chefs are going Asian all next week with a separate menu of Chinese, Japanese and Korean dishes. Among the dishes are spring rolls ($7), Szechuan beef ($16) and almond cookies ($2).

Le Club, 21 Bolshaya Radishchevskaya (next to Taganka Theater), 915-1042, noon to 2 a.m. weekdays, until 5 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
