Russian restaurant

  • l

Can anyone recommend a RUSSIAN (or other?)restaurant that can accommodate a crowd (50 to 60), has good food at a reasonable price ($25/person?), is attractive, fun, and maybe even has music?

We're looking for someplace that has a warm ambiance so that the evening (80th birthday party) will be personal, relaxed - not a formal dinner in a fancy restaurant. Thanks!

  1. There is a Russian restaurant on a boat which is permanently moored in Boston Harbor, near the World Trade Center. I forget the name of it, I'm pretty sure it starts with "A" or "An". They have (or used to have) music. Also, Cafe St. Petersburg in Brookline Village has a great atmosphere, but I'm not sure if they have a function room, or how many they can accomodate. Good luck!

      Russian Village in Washington Square, Brookline gets a big Russian crowd and is reportedly VERY authentic. Of course, many folks like The St.Petersburg Cafe in Brookline Village as well. Two good choices in Brookline.

    2. Very late, very negative response:
      Petersburg, Russian Village offer agreeable service,
      bur i've found the food @ both, as well as in Yelena an abomination.
