    Loved the blintzes, borscht and infused vodkas. The closest thing to being in a club in Russia.

    Великолепнейшее место. Прекрасный персонал, очень душевные бармены и официанты, вкусные коктейли и совершенно не московские цены. Всем быть здесь и не раз, это даже лучше, чем Empire State!

    Идеально подходит для тех, кто хочет отведать русской кухни и окунуться в домашнюю атмосферу в NY) Русская музыка, огромное кол-во наших соотечественников делают это место центром русской культуры:)

    Kseniya Ivanova · November 6, 2012
  • Charlie S.

    Don't fool around with single shots; just go for a carafe of one of the vodkas.

    Best place for a get together or after work party. Live music sets the right mood, staff is amazing especially the bartender Pavel who is the core of a guaranteed fun night!

    Just go for it. Order an ounce of caviar and a very cold shot of vodka for each person...comes with the most amazing blinis

    If you like tea- you must order the tea and stir in the cherry preserves it's AMAZING- especially paired with some of the cranberry infused vodka (my fav).

    the savory vodkas - dill, horseradish, garlic, coriander - are the way to go.

    Friends don't let friends order too many fruity vodkas or friends help friends puke in taxis.
