The Russian Tea Room
Why You'll Love ItOne of New York’s most iconic restaurantsDecor that will literally take your breath awayAbsolutely unparalleled service
It’s rare when celebrities like Woody Allen, Dustin Hoffman, and Madonna are simply side notes in a restaurant’s long and storied history. But this is no ordinary restaurant: it’s The Russian Tea Room. And for more than 80 years, New York's defining cultural moments have taken place here.
Founded by members of the Russian Imperial Ballet, The Russian Tea Room has always been a second home for actors, writers, politicians, and executives. In fact, while you’re staring wide-eyed at your plate and sharing bites of haute cuisine, you might see Woody penning his next screenplay nearby.
(It’s okay; you can call him Woody. We’re all celebrities in the Russian Tea Room.)
