The Russian Tea Room
The proprietor of the landmark New York restaurant combines two dozen representative recipes and quotes and reminiscences by famous guests for a retrospective of the Russian Tea Room's last sixty-five years
Blackwell North Amer
The Russian Tea Room is a magnet for New Yorkers and a must-see destination for American tourists and international travelers. This book presents a vivid, beguiling memoir of New York City's most enduring literary and entertainment meeting-and-eating place that captures the gastronomy, the glamour, and the unique character of the restaurant that is everyone's glass of tea. More than 30 food-and-drink recipes, selected from lunch, dinner, and supper menus, testify to the appeal of its special cuisine - with emphasis on dishes adapted for at-home cooking that contradict the traditional image of Russian food as heavy and filling. More than 20 color illustrations and photographs of the restaurant's extraordinary appointments and art collection offer proof of its incomparable good looks. And throughout its 80 pages are anecdotes and reminiscences about the cast of characters from letters and the arts who have graced the RTR - and occasionally disgraced themselves on its premises - over the past 65 years.
The proprietor of the landmark New York restaurant combines two dozen representative recipes, quotes, and reminiscences by famous guests, and colorful illustrations for a retrospective of the Russian Tea Room's last sixty-five years. 15,000 first printing.
