Though the menu bills the place as “European,” Allegro is patronized mostly by people from the former Soviet Union, though the staff is more than hospitable to the occasional interloper. On the menu are herring and potatoes, blini with caviar, pilimeni (veal dumplings), smoked fish, sturgeon, and lamb, chicken or pork shashlik (marinated and on skewers). (Lamb chops, steaks, salmon and shrimp scampi are the nods to more standard fare.) Given geography, you’d expect Russian cuisine to be hearty, and it is. Chicken Kiev is a pound of chicken breast wrapped around a chunk of butter, then breaded and fried. Beef Stroganoff has a rich mahogany sauce, oddly sprinkled liberally with cilantro. Many appetizers are more expensive than the very reasonable entrées (almost all under $15), but that’s because they come in mass quantities. Allegro is open only Thursday-Sunday and hosts many large groups and private parties, so call ahead for reservations. Needless to add, vodka can be had.
Offering international fare and a classy ambiance, Mirage Restaurant began as a father-son business that was run out of the family's own home. They serve what they call "home-cooked, traditional foods."

It’s tough to figure out exactly what is going down at here, but it would appear there is a new animated movie about Jay & Silent Bob, the stoner characters played by Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, and Smith is coming to town and introducing it. Anybody who has seen Clerks or Chasing Amy knows Smith is capable of brilliance, but the abysmal Comic Book Men TV show proves that he’s capable of the occasional lapse in judgment too (and let’s not even talk about Jersey Girl). At his best, Smith can write dialogue that rivals Tarantino, and he can talk about pop culture all night. Let’s hope he hits his stride in Royal Oak.
New York-based DJ-production duo Designer Drugs apparently clocked up more than 300,000 air miles in the past year, highlighting the fact that these two men are as busy as almighty fuck right now. The album Hardcore/Softcore is set to drop, and the guys (Patrick and Theodore Paul Nelson) have been remixing everyone from Mariah Carey to Thieves Like Us. They’re nothing if not in-demand, and one listen to “Dead Meat” will tell you exactly why. They offer uncompromising, heavy and kinda nasty club tunes that have an industrial edge and a touch of punk too. Got to love that combo.
This multimedia performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art could be a great way to get into alignment for a weekend of electronic music. The headline act is Chromatic Jackie, a collaborative ensemble is made up of a dancer, a musician and a visual artist. The trio, which recently made its first live appearance at New York’s Museum of Arts and Design, mixes computer-generated visuals from artist Dana Bell, sound fragments from Sam Consiglio (formerly of Adult. and Tamion 12 Inch) and movement from dancer Sari Nordman, all choreographed to an original sound piece written for this project. James Marlon Magas will perform as Magas, and the guy has been making music since he was in avant-rock bands Couch and Lake of Dracula in the early 1990s. He’s gone on to become an electronic solo musician with releases on the Ersatz Records label. Between performances, super-popular DJ sets from Disco/Secret and Macho City.
