We had salmon blinis, which were cold, patent, beet salad and the stroganoff. The house Malbec wine was very nice. A nice place where you can hear people talk, charming authentic restaurant.

Do make a reservation. They put us in a room with rugs on the walls, with a dark cozy feel, with room for 4. They are open late, so you can enjoy vodka after dinner for hours. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The caviar sampler was incredible, enough for 4 people, and should not be missed. Thank you for the food, warmth, and the experience for the teenager. He can brag now.

From Our Editors

Russian House instantly transports patrons through space and time with its knick-knacks from the Soviet Union and authentic and diverse cuisine from distant Russia, Ukraine, and Central Asia. Executive chef and Russian food expert Vladimir Gribkov concocts a menu based in home cooking recipes and full of savory and satisfying Slavic delicacies, such as luxurious black and red caviar, sturgeon, handmade pelmeni dumplings, creamy beet borscht, and roasted lamb shank in a sweet and sour sauce. Russian House's 75 different house-infused vodkas and caviar help guests feel almost as opulent as a thoroughbred dressed in a mink cape.

Remnants of old Russia and the USSR decorate the space, from an enormous map of the Soviet Union above the bar to a giant taxidermal bear in the front entrance. It also dazzles eyes with its carpet-covered walls and handpainted ceilings.

Austin Restaurant Guide

If it can be tossed on a grill and slathered in barbecue sauce, it probably can be found at one of the many Austin restaurants that keep things classically Texas. But even though the city may have made its culinary name with sweet, smoky briskets and ribs, new and not-so-new cooking styles have made Austin a foodie destination.

Thanks to the popularity of “Tex-Mex” cuisine, Matt’s El Rancho on South Lamar has managed to become an Austin institution for more than 60 years. Since that time, Tex-Mex dining in Austin has gone uptown with Nuevo Mexican restaurants such as Manuel’s, an upscale Mexican eatery located in downtown Austin, and Garrido’s, a Warehouse District spot that marries traditional Mexican cooking with modern techniques. Foodies who consider eating an adventure are flocking to newcomers on the Austin dining scene including The Afin Modern Japanese Tapas Bar on North Lamar Boulevard, which turns out stunning sushi creations, and Foreign & Domestic, on East 53rd Street, where they utilizes local ingredients to reinvent classic American dishes at this updated take on the diner. Newcomers Asia Café (Sichuan), Indian Spicy Kitchen (Indian) and Mi Kefcito (Cuban) are also worth checking out.

Still, barbecue reigns supreme among Austin food worshippers and one of the newest places is Franklin Barbecue on East 11th Street, recently named the best barbecue restaurant in the country by Bon Appetit magazine. Lines form early here (about 10 a.m.) and Franklin only serves lunch, so plan accordingly. Other places where the barbecue is popular include Live Oak Barbecue on East 2nd Avenue and longtime Austin favorites Stubbs, (located on Red River Street), Sam’s BBQ (on East 12th Street), and Ironworks BBQ (downtown Austin). From traditional Texas chow to unique Southwestern twists on international dishes, Austin is now one of the top favorites for unique taste adventures.
