Cafe Pushkin NY will look like this [now called Brasserie Pushkin]

1. I was walking down the street and peeked into the interior of Cafe Pushkin on 57th Street.

2. Newly-opened Lillie's Midtown has awsome ambiance.

  1. i hope Cafe Pushkin is good -- i'm kind of tired of all the other Russian options in Manhattan these days...

    1. Have to disagree on Lillie's. It actually makes me like the Union Square location less. It feels so overdone, like it belongs in Vegas.

        New York gotta have a little slice of Vegas too. It's New York after all!

      2. The restaurant ended up being called Brasserie Pushkin. It's now open. Menu here:

        Holy crap, it's not cheap.

          $18 borscht! That's 18x what I pay every weekend for my favorite borscht at Streecha!
          (But I guess at Pushkin it won't be served in a styrofoam cup...)
