New York has a long tradition of Russian cuisine, from the grand experience of the Russian Tea Room to the restaurants and shops of Coney Island, Sheepshead Bay, and Brighton Beach. Entering the ring in the high brow corner is Brasserie Pushkin, a three-floor affair from Moscow-based restaurant magnate, Andrey Dellos. The kitchen and pastry program are run by Andrey Makhov and Emmanuel Ryon, respectively, both of whom come from Dellos's restaurant group. Inside the ornate space diners can choose from a menu of food that ranges from traditional Russian to French-inspired: consomme with sturgeon, salmon, and pike; borscht; pelmeni dumplings; tuna tartare; and blinis with caviar. Look out for more New York City pastry shops and restaurants from Dellos in the coming months and years.
