CINCINNATI - Each Thursday, our "Global Table" column explores the international side of Greater Cincinnati dining. Follow WCPO contributor, Grace Yek, as she talks to the chefs and owners of these dining spots about their food, culture and journey to the Tri-State.

If you’ve ever wondered what a Russian engineer’s restaurant prototype might look like, step into Oasis Grill. Just like a well-assembled engine, Oasis locks in all the necessary parts for a complete Russian dining experience: Russian fusion food, take-out, dining room, banquet area, dance floor, and a stage for live entertainment.

The restaurant offers cuisines from nations which, by and large, were once part of the Soviet Union. Hence the notation, "Russian fusion," on the menu. Owner Yury Pivor started his professional life as an engineer.

“I’ve always liked the aspect of creativity in cooking. It’s a business, but I enjoy it as a hobby as well,” he said.

Become a WCPO Insider to see mouth-watering dishes and learn about the many nations that make up Pivor's take on Russian fusion.
