The Low Down
What to Drink: In addition to its famous list of 40 vodkas, cocktails also fare splendidly. Though it may feel corny to order, the Moscow Mule delivers a gingery kick in the pants. The Cavitini comes with a cucumber slice topped with 10 grams of wild American Hackleback caviar floating over chilled Imperia vodka. Other cocktails of note inclide the Cosmonaut and Ivan the Terrible.
Lunch: The a la carte lunch menu includes dishes like the Burger Pojarski ($25) and a caviar omelet ($28). There's also a $35 three-course "business express" lunch.
Where to Sit: The red booths in the main dining room are perfect for surveying the entire room, as they all face outward.
Fun Fact: In the famous movie scene, Dustin Hoffman's "Tootsie" character revealed herself to her agent at table No. 2.
