Restaurant description

Opulent and grand, The Russian Tea Room in New York offers elegant fine dining in sophisticated surroundings. Superb continental cuisine with Russian fare is the key focus at the exquisite Russian Tea Room. The elegant interior features bold red leather banquettes and Art Deco design. Full of character, Russian Tea Room has been a cultural hub in New York for over 80 years, after the members of the Russian Imperial Ballet founded the restaurant in 1927. Full of delicious classics, the menu includes signature dishes like beef stroganoff, poached lobster salad or chicken kiev with caramelized wild rice. High Tea at The Russian Tea Room includes sandwiches and blinis along with cupcakes, seasonal scones and petits fours. A fine selection of loose leaf teas will complement the high tea, with the optional accompaniment of champagne. Close to New York's Carnegie Hall, the vibrant tradition of the Russian Tea Room legacy is still alive to this day.

    We chose this restaurant for its iconic reputation and it didn’t disappoint. Old style glamour and service with top notch food - the stroganoff was a particular favourite at our table, as was the Cosmonaut cocktail! We would definitely recommend for a special night out.

    We so enjoyed our visit to the Russian Tea Room. One Easter Sunday (2017) we walked up 5th Ave from our hotel on 28th Street, passing thru the festivities of the Easter Parade. since we were seeing a 3pm show we booked for as early as possible. Everything was delightful. Our waitress Olga was adorable as well as helpful. She explained the menu and made requested suggestions and took photos for us. The food was all good and everyone had a taste of everyone elses' dishes. The beautiful main dining room was just as depicted online. We were invited to ride the elevator upstairs to view that dining area, which we were hoping to do.

    The Russian Tea Room is often overlooked in planning a dinner pre-theater. It is a beautiful venue whose ambiance makers it a perfect spot for any special occasion. The service is superb and it has an interesting menu which, is not a conventional one nut does offer numerous well thought out and prepared appetizers and entree that would please the most discriminating palate.
