Fantastic old family/museum-feeling, with old Sovjet-stylish interior, and very good, rustic old style Russian dishes. Top score!

Mom and I stopped by early on a Saturday evening. No room, so we reserved for 6 p.m. the next day. When we arrived the place was already full; we got the little table by the door. It’s a neat restaurant with the bookshelves full...More
