Looking for food fit for a Tsar….IN a place fit for a Tsar?
Well then, you can’t miss the opportunity to dine at this place called Firebird
Russian Restaurant. We’ve had a lot of oriental, Italian, French and Indian
food and we left out Russian during the course of our stay in the hustling and
bustling Manhattan. Get away from
the pasta, ravioli, burger and fries for just one night when you take your
taste buds on a journey that you may find hard to forget
This is not merely a restaurant….it is far more than that.
You SHOULD be driving up in a limousine because you’re heading over to the
fashionable home of a Russian gentleman with exquisite taste buds and taste in
books and art too. It’s awesomely romantic if you’re celebrating a special
event with the people you love.
As you enter this Manhattan
restaurant, you’ll be awed with the sheer beauty of the extensive decoration
done – there’s exclusive china, crystals of all types beside collectibles that
you can never dream of owning or touching. Maintained like a home of a rich
Russian family, take a look around the library where the walls are carefully
decorated with walls of rare Russian books. Along the breathtaking staircase,
there’s a Parlor where the chairs in itself, must have cost a small fortune!
I don’t have the right words to describe the ballroom
because it belongs to one of the scenes from a fairy-tale! Think Cinderella or
Beauty and the Beast. Look up in the Grand Ballroom and be enchanted with the
domed ceiling and a view to the Manhattan
It occurred to us that we’re here for more than just a mere
meal. It dawned on me that we were there for the experience, as much as it was
for the food. It’s very romantic and surreal and I give them two thumbs-up for
creating a magnificent atmosphere.
The dishes are authentic but there’s a price to pay for
authentic yummy food, I always say. The meals are very special in every way
possible and if you’ve had a chance to taste pre-revolution food, then this is
it. The dishes cost somewhere within the region of $30 to $50 each, so you’re
paying for the brilliant ambience as well as for the food.
It is one of New York’s
most ambitious projects to-date and it speaks volume because you can feel the
passion for Russian art, cuisine and literature crawl all over your skin.
