Kalinka Tea House
Kalinka Russian Tea House celebrates the hearty flavors of Russian cuisine with authentic dishes of meaty dumplings, thin blinchiki pancakes, and wholesome soups and stews. Traditional Russian fare combines the earthy vegetables and savory cutlets of Slavic peasant cooking with the gentry's delicate French-influenced salads, desserts, and forks that won't work unless the pinky is pointed skyward. Eurasian feasts flourish when complemented with glassfuls of rye-based kvass imported from Russia, earthy cups of Turkish coffee, or fresh tea steeped in an authentic samovar.
