Authentic Russian cuisine

Our menu features signature dishes from the recipes passed down generation to generation.  Each dish tells a story of the old country!


Classic Russian Vodka

In the mother land, only the wealthy could afford high quality vodka.  The commoners had to make their vodka palatable by infusing it with fruit or herbs.  We're proud to offer both varieties of vodka, and our infusions are made right here.


And a historical heritage

Before Russian Samovar existed, this was a hang out for Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.  Now, you can still find stars like Mikhael Baryshnikov gracing our tables.



Make a reservation

We also feature private space and banquet menus.  If you are interested in a private event, please click below.

Our dishes were created to soothe the soul in the harsh Russian winters or to relax you in the summer heat. Featuring seasonal hot and cold soups, hearty favorites like Chicken Kiev and Beef Stroganoff, and light, elegant fair like our extensive salad and caviar options, we have something for all seasons.

cuisine for your soul

Have a drink

at the bar

Our house made, award winning infused vodkas have survived the trip from the motherland and have only grown better with time. Featuring over 20 flavors of sweet and savory vodkas, we offer the perfect pairing for any meal.  Of course, all vodka pairs well with a celebration of zastolie!
