“Friendly staff, elegant ambiance.”
“Great tea, terrible service”
“have to say that I had the most delicious dinner here.”
“They offer a great variety of food for vegetarians, dedicating a large portion of the menu to those diners.”
“My boyfriend and I thought this would be a nice place for my birthday dinner.”
“Food's great, atmosphere over-the-top Rrrrrussian shmaltz, but service and kitchen timing are appalling.”
“Blini's , borscht pricey but delicious great pre-theatre fare on a cold Chicago night.”
When you wanna shake up your dining routine, swing by this oldie for some blini and stroganoff.
I love Russian Tea Time. Ok, it's a little old-fashioned and gilded, and the menu isn't particularly trendy. But it's got a great vodka selection and a smoked fish platter for two that can't be beat, covered with herring, salmon, caviar, blini and traditional fixins.
Fun and Tasty. Great food, from heavy traditional dishes laden with meat, to lighter fare, vegetarian and otherwise. The vodka service can't be beat-- choose three from their vast s selection from around the world for ten bucks.
The best restaurant for vegetarians.
Fantastic place! Great vegetarian selections, caviar, great vodka selections! My favorite is horseradish flavored vodka. Friendly staff, elegant ambiance.
This place deserves to be in the best list!
Try it all. Unlike all other Russian restaurants I have visited this one had many vegetarian options. I have been there twice and tried different things each time. The restaurant definitely feels eastern european and the food is fantastic. We took advantage of the variety in appetizers, soups, salads and side dishes in order to try a very wide variety of things. All were good. The chick pea stew and the Uzbek dumplings were highlights.
A Five 'Czar' Restaurant !. Vadim Muchnik's Russian Tea Time is quite simply the finest Eastern European cuisine in the city. From traditional Russian to Azerbajani, everything has an authentic flavor and classy presentation. They offer a great variety of food for vegetarians, dedicating a large portion of the menu to those diners. Vodkas and caviars are of course there to be had, but the appetizers to the entrees to the desserts are all first rate, proving the richness of the region's culinary heritage.
