A listing has appeared on Craigslist for a Brooklyn establishment that looks an awful lot like Brighton Beach Avenue’s famed Primorski Restaurant, known for its Georgian specialties, chilled liquor, and spinning disco balls. The listing states that the current owner is looking to retire, but will nonetheless first “teach you to run it to keep the Russian clientele,” which reportedly includes tour-bus crowds and throngs of senior citizens during the week. If you haven’t been, you probably should, and soon. Straight ahead, a clip featuring Primorski from the final No Reservations episode, in which Anthony Bourdain sidekick Iazamir “Zamir” Gotta pronounces the mirrored, lounge-y space to be the “swinging entertainment heartbeat of Brighton Beach.”
