Russian Tea Room
Über diesen Ort
For over ninety years, some of New York's most defining cultural moments have taken place at The Russian Tea Room. Founded by members of the Russian Imperial Ballet in 1927, it has been a second home for boldface names and the intellectual elite; an exclusive enclave where actors, writers, politicians, and executives plan their next deals and celebrate friends' latest Carnegie Hall performances. Countless guests visiting from around the world walk through the antique revolving doors to catch a glimpse of the booth Dustin Hoffman sat in when filming Tootsie; to see the inspiration that Woody Allen found for the movie Manhattan; or to walk past the coat check where Madonna worked before she found fame. The Russian Tea Room, decked in modernist Russian-style décor, serves continental fine dining (think red borscht and blitzes), elegant high tea, and the finest selection of vodka.
