Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community.

The Russian Tea Room

A Tasting

Stewart-Gordon, Faith

(Book - 1993)
The Russian Tea Room
Baker & Taylor
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.
