Eat at the Russian Tea Room



For more than eighty years, New York's defining cultural moments have taken place at The Russian Tea Room. To this day, it still captures modernist Russian style décor and hosts New York’s elite as a restaurant for continental fine dining, elegant high tea, the finest vodka selection and a stylish party venue.

The Russian Tea Room has been a second home for boldface names and intellectual elite, an enclave where actors, artists, writers, politicians and businesspeople plan deals and fete their Carnegie Hall performer friends. Today, it retains the best of its history, architecture and authentic Russian cuisine while integrating culinary classics with modern continental fare. Two upper floors offer glamorous venues for private celebrations and corporate functions, accommodating 10–800 guests for cocktails or meals. The famous red booths, antique samovars, 15-foot bear aquarium and 20-foot golden tree with Venetian glass eggs combine for a unique experience.

I went to the Russian tea room to have dessert ( which counted as dinner in my book because I ate what I was craving) and a few shots of vodka. Everything was just as I would have it be, half empty, pampered and posh without that snobbish feeling you get with restaurants of this quality and reputation. I enjoyed the experience immensely.
