Red Room
Meet Moscow 57. It’s Special.

Christ, it looks like Russia out there.

Oh hey, it looks like Russia in here, too...

Bid a hearty привет to Moscow 57, an eclectic Russian/Central Asian dinner-and-live-music spot, opening tonight on the LES at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge.

Know this:

One of the people behind it is a singer whose parents owned the Russian Tea Room for almost 50 years.
Hence the fondness for zakuska (Russian small plates) and espresso-infused vodka with hot chocolate. Which is today’s winner of the “Holy sh*t that sounds perfect right now” award.

And she runs a music label along with the chef.
Which means they’ll have live performances every night. Some jazz, some African roots. So... not so Russian.

Blini, kebabs... Georgian chicken chakhobili: it’s all covered.
Along with your standard-issue osetra and sevruga caviars. (Read: the ones you want.)

It’s so red.
Just so, so red. Everywhere you look, red.

Vodkas employed here include ones with:
Horseradish, white pomegranate, pickles, rose petals.

Other things that employ vodka here include:
Coffee, hot chocolate, blini plates, ice cream.

It’s almost as if they especially enjoy vodka.
