Good Russian Restaurant

I have never been to a Russian restauraant and would like to try the food. Does anyone know of a good one?

  1. If you're looking for Russian food, I'd say Traktir on Santa Monica and Fairfax in WeHo.

    1. Uzbekistan on Sunset in Hollywood.

      1. Diaghilev in West's a little expensive but Zagat rates it high in all respects.

          Don't eat at Diaghilev. It is a class example of a bad steer by Zagat. You might consider searching some of the dismal experiences members have had there in the past (including me).

          Traktir is very tasty.

            Actually Diaghilev isn't an option as it closed a year ago, the hotel changed hands, and Gordon Ramsey (of London restaurant fame) is going to open something there spring of 2007.

            Here is the backup:

              Thanks for the update. I would have loved, loved, loved Gordon Ramsey's reaction to the meal I had there.
