Michelin guide recommended: “This hot spot caters to hockey players, Russian intelligentsia, and vodka aficionados alike. Russian Samovar is both quirky and elegant, with musicians tickling the piano and violin. The staff is attentive, sweet, and can walk you through delicious fare.” The restaurant was founded in 1986, by Russian poet Joseph Brodsky with entrepreneur Roman Kaplan and famous Russian ballet dancer Michael Baryshnikov. Frank Sinatra once owned the restaurant and had many concerts here and often spent time with his friends here. It kept its charming tradition to become a favorite place for Russians and a home for famous Russian poets and writers. For the last 15 years Russian Samovar has been a place for poetry reading, live music and special occasions for Russian immigrants. Our menu starts with a traditional Russian chicken, potato, and vegetable salad, or caviar-style eggplant served on brown wheat toast corners, or a traditional beet and vegetable salad. The second course is a mushroom soup, a chicken soup, or their famous Russian borscht. Our third course is a roasted duck breast, or beef stroganoff or grilled salmon. Traditional Russian cake or ice cream for dessert.
