Russian Vodka Room
Posted by elena1 on 01/03/2008
This was my 2nd time at the RVR and I have to say I have mixed feelings about it this time around. I wanted my boyfriend to have a real Russian dining experience with me. Unfortunately we weren't that hungry and ordered the herring and potatoes along with the sour plate (pickles, peppers, cabbage etc). There was one or two potatoes on the plate, and two strips of herring (very disappointing. We did sample the flavored vodkas. The cranberry and horseradish were very good. Dill was a bit scary...Anyway, this place has a great atmosphere, great for drinks and a light snack. If you want real Russian food at a real Russian price, go to Brighton Beach.

One of my favorite spots in the city. The food is great as is the flavored vodka, strawberry is the best. Very typical Russian atmosphere. Love it.

This was a last minute idea that ended up being quite a wonderful treat. The Russian Vdka Room is exactly the place to go to enjoy some high end Russian food without leaving the city to go into a Russian neighborhood. The food is authentic but offers some other american dishes to help the less brave feel at home. Our intention was dinner but the drinks were the best. Whether you want to have a traditional meal, amazingly hard hitting drinks, or classic russian tea and desert this is the place!

Went here with my boyfriend and his mom - first-generation russians - and it was very good. Try the more classic russian stuff - herring with potatoes, etc. Order the breads and spreads. And, though it's not very russian . . get the triple chocolate mousse for dessert because it's sooo delicious. And if you like fancy vodka, this is the place for you.
