I might be a trash mouth girl from Pittsburgh who grew up drinking Mickey's Ice 40's, but you know what? I like fancy stuff. I like the pomp & circumstance of a waiter in a full suit serving me from a silver platter. Therefore, I love the RTR. This iconic venue has been a city institution for over 80 years. The property towers 4 stories high with 3 breathtaking floors of private dining spaces atop a mezmerizing main dining room ornately decorated. The experience doesn't come cheap, but they delivery on quality & portions are generous. To sample their finest, tuck into the caviar tasting atop buckwheat blinis or the vodka & dill house cured gravlax. Entrees are decadent versions of classics like chicken kiev & beef stroganoff. You aren't here to obey your diet. And, when in Rome...treat yourself to a vodka flight with even more caviar. You deserve it.
