Foursquare Tips

  • "To go with the gift of vodka, you decide to get a plate of blini, thin buckwheat pancakes, with sour cream and a small pot of salmon roe. Once more the house has won."
  • , , . !
  • Okroshka is soooo yummy;)))
  • Try the cucumber dill vodka with the Olivera salad. Amazing combo.
  • This may be simple Russian cooking, but it is careful Russian cooking, distinguished less in conception than in execution; tasting distinctly of home.
  • Mari Vanna is the kind of place whose newspaper coverage tends to focus on billionaires and movie stars more than it does whatever might be on your plate.
  • Recommended dishes: Herring Under a Fur Coat, chickenholodetz,svekolnik, potatozrazy,pirozhki, vealkotletki, stuffed cabbage,smetannik.
  • My favorite restaurant of all times
  • Try the pickle martini. Oddest thing in the world. Fun though.
  • - )) , dc, - oldie but goodie ukranian borscht with pampushka is available;! chicken kotletki, schweeetie bird's milk!
  • Interior is terrific! And this blueberry infused vodka was really really good! (and I never in my life thought that I would ever compliment the taste of vodka).
  • . . !
  • If you don't mind herring, try cold appetizer 'herring under a fur coat'. Veal blintzes are simply out of this world!
  • Yummy food, fair service, freaking pricey though! But worth it for the sake of atmosphere and delicious food. P.s. decor is very cozy and pretty - French Provence style.
  • Mike and Eva are the best bartenders!)
  • My favorite Russian restaurants when I'm in LA.
