Restaurant Shalyapin

A showcase Russian cuisine restaurant in the quiet center, right between the Taurida Garden and the Smolny Palace. A demure interior of an early 20th century St. Petersburg apartment is a great setup for business lunches and friendly dinners. The service is aristocratic, the hospitality is grand: the morning time millet porridge and omelet give way to rassolnik (pickle soup), pelmeni, and pike cutlets.
