Brighton Beach is home to a slew of Russian restaurants, many of them founded on the Vegas nightclub model. But under the Q tracks lurks Skovorodka ("The Skillet"), a family-style restaurant that eschews the Casio-pounding, sequins-wearing floor shows of the other spots, offering instead home-style fare of the former Soviet republics, including the Georgian standard, chicken tabaka—a pullet flattened like a pancake, bones and all, fried to a deep brown, and paved with crushed garlic. You've never had a bird quite like this, and Colonel Sanders should take note.
