New York City’s venerated Russian Tea Room has been dishing up classic continental fare with an eastern twist since its founding in 1927 by the Russian Imperial Ballet. Make your way to the Midtown dining destination for lunch or dinner and slide into a comfy red leather booth.
Admire the sparkling chandeliers, original works of art, Fabergé eggs and antique samovars that adorn the opulent dining room, which has been used as the filming location for movies including Manhattan, Tootsie, and The Turning Point.
Make your selections from a three-course menu featuring Russian and Eastern European classics like borscht, beef stroganoff, chicken Kiev and vareniki dumplings, served with tea or coffee and your choice of dessert for a sweet finish.
The Russian Tea Room is a short walk from Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center, making it an ideal spot for a memorable preshow meal.
