A delightfully chic Russian restaurant, the Katia's Russian Tea Room is done in light woods and shades of apricot. Crisp white linen is on the tables and smiles are on the faces of the staff who greet you warmly at the door. The food is wonderful, from the Varnischkes, to the Vegetarian Potato Pancakes, to the Blinis with your choice of filling, including Beluga caviar. Everything here is savory and beautifully presented. Desserts include a hefty Chocolate Walnut cake, Napoleans, and a traditional and tasty fruit pudding made with fresh fruit thickened with cornstarch. Tea is elegantly served the traditional way, in glasses with real silver holders. Dinner with appetizer and dessert runs between, lunch a little less. The wine list is small, but offers nice selections from California vineyards and a few imported from Mother Russia, too.
