U Pirosmani Review

Copies of works by namesake Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani decorate the whitewashed walls that, along with wood-paneled ceilings, create the aura of an artist's studio. Try to sit by the window in the main hall or on the balcony so you can enjoy beautiful views of New Maiden's Convent, across the pond. The menu reads like a Georgian cookbook, though some complain that the food can be a bit hit or miss. But order the hachapuri, Georgian cheese pie, and a kebab and you can't go wrong.

    Worst Russian Meal

    Traveling for a week in Moscow and St. Petersburg, the only bad meal we had was at U Pirosmani. A pork cutlet under melted cheese was all gristle and cost over $30, without sides. A chicken dish in a tasty cream sauce had virutally no meat on the bones and cost about $20. Though the atmosphere was appealing, it was obvious they were trying to fob off sub-standard food on the tourists. And when he was over, they said they temporarily couldn't accept credit cards. We were lucky to have had just enough rubles in our wallet. According to prominent photos, Bill Clinton ate at this restaurant in 1995. Apparently, he had a better meal than we did.
