A classy choice for the symphony set and couples looking to indulge, this institution proves excess is best. Slide into a cozy booth and start the assault with classic borscht, sour cream–slathered dumplings and caviar blini. Follow up with creamy beef Stroganoff or oniony, nutmeg-laced, ground beef–stuffed cabbage rolls. Finish up with hot farmer’s-cheese blintzes or Klara’s apricot-and-plum strudel, a family recipe. Be sure to order a flight of house-infused vodkas (horseradish, ginger, black currant tea, coriander and more).
