My wife and I popped in here with a deal we got on Groupon for a six vodka- and four blini- tasting.
Here are the vodkas we tried, in order of how I liked them:
Jewel of Russia
We also had Jewel of Russia Wild Berry as our sixth, but I don’t really count that as a true vodka since it is heavily flavored. It tasted more like a port.
We did two salmon and two trout blinis. The blini was buckwheat, and soft, with a generous amount of sour cream, some chopped boiled eggs, onions and the caviar. We both liked the salmon better.
White fish was also available on the Groupon but we passed on that one.
Overall this was a nice snack. Glad we did it. Just hanging out for a while in the dining room itself is worth the price of admission. So opulent and nice inside.
