Best Russian in Chicago?


First post.

I've eaten in Chicago a ton of times, mostly steak and local type places, no chain places.

Looking for your opinion on the best Russian around, Been to Tea Time and it was OK, nothing IMHO to write home about. The Russia House in DC was good if you are looking for something I'm trying to compare it to.

Doesn't have to be pricey, can be in a small neighborhood or a large place.

  1. Unfortunately, I have not found a good Russian restaurant in Chicago. It does not exist at present time!

    1. Agree with igorm. But if you really want to try Russian food here, Zhivago in Skokie is one of the better ones.
