The atmosphere is cozy and homey at this former mansion, which has been made to look like the rustic 19th-century estate of a Russian noble. The decor is mostly wood, and each dining room is named for a typical room in an estate, e.g., the tapestry room, the sitting room, the playing room. The food is sumptuous, lavish, and modeled after the dishes the nobles would eat in their dachas. Try one of the pies, which come with a variety of fillings, including fruits and berries as well as vegetables, meats, and seafood. Other options include chicken Kiev, stuffed with shrimp here, or the grilled beed tenderloin, which is served with potatoes, garlic butter, and a brandy cream sauce. Reservations are a good idea.
