Restoran Review

Spacious, with soft lighting and earth tones, the surroundings are at once stylish and traditional, and as straightforward as the name, which means "restaurant" in Russian. The menu of traditional classics is as nonfussy as the decor; try the sterlet (sturgeon) baked in fragrant herbs with horseradish sauce, veal with mashed potatoes and chanterelles, or the house-made pelmeni (dumplings) filled with lamb, beef, or potatoes and dill. A long, wooden table at the entrance supports a wide selection of house-made flavored vodkas in rustic glass decanters.

    Great Food and Great Room

    This was the first restaurant we at in on a recent weekend break to St. Petersburg. We loved the minimalist look and feel of the restaurant yet the feel was warm and light with the huge window and candlelight. My other half had the Sauerkraut soup which is a must. For the main course he had beef stroganoff which was fantastic with plenty of sour cream. I started with the chopped herring and had the Venison in Cranberry sauce. We drank a bottle of Soviet Champagne which despite it being near freezing out side was some what close to room tempurature but still tasted fine.
