Caviar Russe, New York, NY

Caviar Russe Restaurant Review

: Converted from a furniture showroom, Caviar Russe is a luxurious and romantic little spot with glittering chandeliers, a robin's egg-blue ceiling and Russian murals. Decadence is the name of the game. Guests indulge in caviar, caviar and more caviar. There is also other fancy, celebratory fare including smoked salmon and blini, duck confit with foie gras, Maine lobster and tartare of sirloin of steak, each available with a dollop or two of caviar upon request. Oysters, tuna sashimi and escargot round out the menu. For dessert, there's ginger custard and mini madeleines served warm. And to wash it all down is plenty of vodka and Champagne. The bar also functions as a retail shop, purveying several varieties of excellent Caspian caviar.
