Korchma Taras Bulba
Korchma Taras Bulba practically overflows with the spirit of a provincial Ukrainian village. Servers clad in traditional garb—including bright red and blue pants, flowing shirts and dresses, and either straw hats or floral headpieces—circulate through the dining room, which seems to resemble a home more than a restaurant. Inside, guests are treated like long-time friends. Shelves full of preserved foods, rustic lanterns, sewing machines, small barrels, and other tchotchkes surround the tables. Strings of garlic, rustic farming tools, and stout rolling pins dangle from the walls and ceiling, adding even more flair to an already distinctive space. "Think of [Korchma Taras Bulba] as a performance and a restaurant," advises the New York Times, "a nostalgic pageant of a bucolic Ukraine..."
The restaurant itself is part of the world's largest Ukrainian restaurant chain, boasting 16 different Moscow locations along with one in Kiev and one in New York City. Here, the menu shares this devotion to the rustic Ukrainian spirit. The chefs adhere closely to tradition by curing salmon in-house and making their own sausages using chicken or pork and a secret blend of spices. Classics, such as beef stroganoff and blintzes topped with sour cream, lox, or red caviar, help round out a selection of hearty Eastern European comfort foods. To wash down this rib-sticking fare, Korchma Taras Bulba serves freshly squeezed juices as well as homemade kvass by the glass- or thimble-ful.
