- $24 for $40 worth of Eastern European cuisine
At Pushkin Restaurant, diners feast upon artfully plated, highly authentic takes on Eastern European cuisine as white busts of the restaurant's namesake, the poet Pushkin, look on. Chefs hew to tradition when preparing their dishes, which primarily represent Russia but also draw from Georgian and Armenian cuisines. Specialties include a signature soup that's simmered for 14 hours, and kebabs that are painstakingly grilled to perfection. Paired with a prodigious vodka list, each lamb rib, sour-cream-topped cup of pelmeni, and plate of chicken kiev launches taste buds to the other side of the world. Diners enjoy this elegant cuisine at sleek black tabletops that sit beneath soaring high ceilings and sparkling chandeliers.
