Now soft-opened in AdMo, Slaviya's a wide-open, sunlit restaurant n' lounge full of Eastern European food, drink, and atmosphere, lined with large mirrors, textured beige walls, and a behind-the-bar DJ booth; the whole shebang's from the Serbian/Russian/Bulgarian owners of the space's previous inhabitant, Left Bank, who realized they needed a completely new concept to keep the business afloat, but decided to retain their "well-appreciated" brunch menu, loyalty that absolves them of becoming Eggs Benedict Arnolds.
