The Russian Tea Room is a treasured, globally-renowned cultural institution and an enchanting, magical place where people of all ages and backgrounds have been having unforgettable dining & celebratory experiences for 92 years.

Simultaneously a sanctuary of refinement, fine cuisine and elegance, and a bastion of delicious, decadent, glamorous fun, the Russian Tea Room provides a luxurious, world-class experience that is universally accessible and provides unparalleled quality and exceptional value.

Universally adored since opening, many of New York's defining cultural moments have taken place at The Russian Tea Room.

Since being founded by members of the Russian Imperial Ballet in 1927, The Russian Tea Room has been a second home for boldface names and the intellectual elite - an exclusive enclave where actors, writers, politicians, and executives plan their next deals and celebrate their friends’ latest Carnegie Hall performances.

Countless guests visiting from around the globe walk through the antique revolving doors to catch a glimpse of the booth Dustin Hoffman sat in when filming Tootsie; to see the inspiration that Woody Allen found for the movie Manhattan; to walk past the coat check where Madonna worked before she found fame; or to try martinis like the cast of Gossip Girl recently did.

Today, The Russian Tea Room still captures the exquisite, whimsical, modernist Russian-style décor, hosting New Yorkers and global citizens as a magical, luxurious and universally adored destination for continental fine dining, elegant high tea, the finest vodka selection and a breathtaking private event venue.
