NY Times and Russian Culture (food) in Israel

First, I want to wish the US Hockey team luck tonight against Canada.

Second, there was a very interesting article published in the New York Times the other day about Russian culture in Israel. It was written by the Times' Moscow bureau chief, and it was published in the travel section. The author writes about the impact, with his primary focus being culinary, of the 1.5 million immigrants from countries that comprised the former Soviet Union to Israel in the last 20 years.

The article is definitely worth a read, and he even mentions a restaurant, Nanushka, that I've reviewed on this blog in the past. My only concern is that people will flock to Ashdod expecting a more grandiose place than the reality...at least from my experience.
