Dripping in crystals, tchotchkes and china dolls, the ornate decor at this restaurant and bar is reminiscent of the sitting room in your Russian grandmother’s delicately furnished Upper East Side apartment. Despite its Russian roots, the bar seems to specialize more in $15 fruit-infused cocktails than double vodkas on the rocks. Although undeniably gimmicky, the details (comfy high-back bar stools and intimate lighting) provide a certain coziness that permeates the space, making it a worthwhile stop to catch up with close friends or a budding love interest.
