The second Russian experience stop was the Russian Vodka Room, a Russian restaurant and piano bar on 53rd street in Manhattan. I had been to this place twice before, both times on dates (with different guys). I can see how this place can be a good date spot - it's dark, with a cool relaxing atmosphere, and amazing drinks.
This time I came here with my roommate, and while everything was as great as it usually is here, we were not impressed by their food. It was just ok, nothing special. Except for the desserts, their desserts were indeed exceptional.
