© The Russian Tea Room
The Russian Tea Room is one of Manhattan's most legendary restaurants, immortalized in feature films such as When Harry Met Sally, Tootsie, and Big. The restaurant was originally opened in 1927 as a community gathering space for Russian immigrants and quickly became a hot spot for entertainment industry diners due to its owners' connection to the Russian Imperial Ballet. It is housed within a converted former townhouse along Manhattan's 57th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, located near landmarks such as the Metropolitan Tower and the Carnegie Hall Tower. During the mid-2oth century, it was known as a popular dining spot for celebrities such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Barbra Streisand, Mel Brooks, and Rudolf Nureyev. Continental cuisine infused with Russian influences is served at brunch, lunch, high tea, and dinner, including signature dishes such as the restaurant's red borscht and blintzes. A world-class beverage program is also offered, including an extensive wine list and more than 40 types of Russian vodkas.
