    Porcelain "paintings" literally covering the walls and neon green tablecloths with glass on top combine to give the gaudy feel of an authentic Russian restaurant. Add the overly loud piano playing in the rear, the clientele, and the tuxedo-clad staff, and you could be in Russia.

    The cuisine is pretty authentic too, with a whole page of caviar and a seperate vodka menu. The soups, salads russes, and various forms of pounded chicken offer a change from the generic Irish, Italian, Asian, and American restaurants all over Boston.

    Be sure to make reservations, as this is a small place, and it fills up by 6pm and stays full. Also, it's not handicap-friendly, so you might want to call ahead to warn them if you're headed there in a wheelchair.

    Favorite Dish: House cranberry vodka. You cannot really have dined here without trying this. It comes in chilled glasses and is bright red. If you don't get it at first, you won't be able to resist once you see everyone around you gulping them down. Other dishes include pozharski cutlets, blini, stuffed cabbage, chicken kiev, and the ever-gross kasha.
