I love going to the Russian Tea Room in New York, which was not far from where David Bowie used to have a flat overlooking Central Park.
David Bowie Is exhibition which opened in London, then traveled to Toronto will open at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art , September 2014–Jan 2015. Plan to see this amazing exhibit if you missed it in London or Toronto and here is one stop you may want to put on your list prior to the exhibit or after you see it.
Russian Tea Time is the kind of classic, white-tablecloth restaurant that helps old cities age gracefully. There’s nothing new here, just wonderful Ukrainian-style borscht ($6), Russian herring ($13.50) and Moldavian, Uzbek and Azerbaijani specialties on a busy downtown street. The tea service ($29.95) includes over 30 teas and a spread of sweets and savories such as Pozharski croquettes and rugelach, while the vodka flights feature house-flavored black currant, horseradish and ginger spirits.
