The breathtaking surroundings—there's an art-nouveau stained-glass roof, shining parquet floors, and private balconies—are fit for a tsar, as are the prices. The mouthwatering menu includes some dishes inspired by authentic royal recipes, among them beef filet with a bacon and mustard champagne sauce. The chef's tasting menu gets off to a memorable start with a pair of eggshells filled with truffle flavored scrambled egg topped with Osetra caviar. Reserve well ahead, especially in summer.

I ate a wonderful dinner here, one unlike any other I have ever had. the atmosphere was amazing, and I felt like a princess, sitting in my own private room with waiters who all lifted the silver tray toppers at the same time for the beginning of each course. Amazing, amazing, amazing is all I can say. But beware- all this amazingness comes at a hefty price
