Golden Samovar - Rockville
Samovar serves up the exotic cuisine of Russia in its bright and elegant eatery. Excellent appetizers to start your meal with include the chebureki, a fried pastry stuffed with chicken, served with a spicy sauce and the smoked fish plate with mackerel, salmon and butterfish. Popular entrees, such as the buttery chicken Kiev, flavorful borsch soup and the lesnaya polyana, with layered potatoes, eggs and plums, are the cuisine we expect of a Russian restaurant, but are so well prepared and flavor-packed that it is delightfully other worldly. For a sweet end to your meal, try one of the homemade desserts, like the honey cake or nutty klyukovka.
For a real decadent treat, try Samovar's caviar bar, available with different grades of caviar served with flaky blintzes.
