THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Firebird Restaurant Review

: Opulent and lush with the trappings of wealth, this Theater District restaurant is a throwback in time, attempting to recapture St. Petersburg's heyday. The menu may boast classics like chicken Kiev and borscht --- all of which are finely executed --- but chef Paul Joseph applies French technique to many dishes, making them even more satisfying. Sip on one of 200 types of vodka while enjoying the braised pork belly, served with Szechuan peppercorns and foie gras; or the house-cured gravlax with its hint of lemon grass. Diver scallops star on another plate, with an assist from confit tomato and vanilla jus. Save room for bananas Foster, which is prepared tableside by friendly servers. And in the end, remember there's always plenty of vodka available.

Spectacular. I had visited this retaurant last year when my relative had their wedding party here. I re-visited the restaurant in Jauary 2009 with business clients and I must say that everything was still as great as when I was here last year. The decor looks like the russian czars palace. The food was very good and was plated in an artistic manner. They had a very comprehensive and impressive wine list and an unbelievable vodka list (You must try the Honey Vodka). The waitstaff was very knowledgeable and very courteous. Great Food, Great atmosphere, Great decor, Great service. I would recomend this restaurant very highly to all.
