Cafe Pushkin’s traditional Russian menu is a bit expensive, but it’s world class cuisine is worth it when you consider the fact you’ll be eating in one of the most beautiful Baroque libraries in the world.

 

 

Just imagine thumbing through something by Tolstoy or Dostoevsky after your meal!

Though the restaurant only opened in 1999, dining at Café Pushkin feels like stepping back in time to the days when high society nobles gathered in the mansion to discuss literature, art, and politics.

There are multiple distinct areas inside — such as The Pharmacy Hall, Fireplace Hall, Summer Terrace — each with its own fabulous décor and atmosphere.

 

 

However, book lovers are definitely going to want to dine in the library or mezzanine, which houses the antique collections from the mansion. The Baroque-style decor and rows upon rows of antique books is enough to make any 19th century fan swoon!
