PECTOPAH Uzbeki in Bath Beach

Went to another newish place last night on 86th street in Bath Beach last night. PECTOPAH is an Uzbeki place along the lines of Cheburechnaya. I'd say it topped Cheburechnaya in quality of the grilled meats we tried. (Cheburechnaya is my only other experience with Uzbeki food). The bread was not as good but the meats and the tomato and cucumber salads made up for it. We also tried an order of large steamed dumplings which were, well large, and filled with a meat mixture. No sauce was included. I am not sure if that was an oversight or not. They were still pretty tasty.

Here is the menu, definitely worth investigating if you are looking to get your meat on in the area. If you look at the menu, you will see there are a lot of non-grill items too available.

  1. Does anyone know how can you get the chow board image upload to allow for image large enough to read. this and the last menu i posted are both 11x17 and will never be readable at the low res they are chopped to?

    1. Not for nothing, but I'm curious about how the place wants its name pronounced: "Pectopah" or, from the original cyrillic Uzbeki/Russian, "Restoran"? A little like naming a Greek place "Tabepna".....

        are these places open or closed on Sat night?

          I don't think this place is kosher. It is open 11am-11pm 7 days a week per the menu.

          Since on the menu the "Uzbeki" in the name is written in Cyrillic also, my guess would be that it should be pronounced "restoran." Although "pectopah" is pretty funny.
