Chekhov

In an era of bombastic interiors and overpriced sushi, locals are grateful for this hidden spot, which faithfully re-creates a 19th-century Russian estate. While Chopin is played on a white piano, waitresses in period dresses deliver exquisite dacha (country house) dishes. Try the home-pickled porcinis, veal ribs with boiled potatoes, or any of the house-infused vodkas in flavors like pin nut or horseradish.

In an era of bombastic interiors and overpriced sushi, locals are grateful for this hidden spot, which evokes a 19th-century Russian estate. While Chopin is played on a white piano, waitresses in period dresses deliver exquisite <em>dacha</em> (country house) dishes.

We loved: Home-pickled porcinis; veal ribs with boiled young potatoes.

Insider tip: Try the house-infused vodkas, in flavors such as pine nut and fresh horseradish.
