Russian Tea Time Restaurant Review

: This is about the only Russian game in town, so if you have a taste for borscht, caviar and blinis, dumplings, stroganoff and stuffed cabbage, this is your place. Looking for a back-in-the-day dining experience? You’ll find that here, too. The dining rooms are old-world comfortable. As for the menu, the platters for two are a bountiful bargain. Fortunately, vegetarians will find plenty to like, such as the stuffed eggplant, and vodka lovers will groove on the flights. This place gets busy when there is a symphony performance, but service is always cordial. There is an elegant tea service, complete with scones, tea sandwiches and tea cakes served daily from 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. The dessert list is vast, including everything from chocolate ganache cake to a napoleon torte. However, at meal’s end, we find the Black Forest cake --- rich with chocolate and cherry flavors --- particularly good.
