Spa
“The banyas of Brooklyn are no-frills compared to the spas of Manhattan—no one is going to hand you a glass of cucumber-infused water at a banya. You’ll get a locker key, towels, one-size fits-all sandals or Crocs, and instructions on how to use the place: There’s the dry banya, the wet banya, the sauna, the whirlpool, the cold shower, and you can order from the menu. What’s on the menu? A variety of traditional Russian fare like dumplings (pelmeni and vareniki), shish kebab (Shashlyk), pirozhki, borscht, as well as juices, Russian beers, and alcohol. ”
