312. NYC Part 5 | Russian Tea Room

NYC Madison Avenue
As many of you probably know, Paris is my most favourite city in the world. I most recently went this past June, which feels like forever ago..and I miss it terribly. To the point that whenever I see photos of it, it makes me sad that I'm not there right now. & Whenever I listen to Hotel Costes I think of aimlessly strolling around the city to Summer in Paris..or sitting in front of the Eiffel Tower every night with nutella crepes. I NEED TO GO BACK!!! Ok I should stop talking about Paris when this post is actually about New York lol. But that's just what I've been thinking about this past week..it relates to everything else that's been on my mind lately but I'll save that for another post.

Right now when I'm looking through these photos of NYC, I get a similar sort of feeling. Can't say I love that city even half as much as Paris, but I do wish I could rewind time (exactly a month ago today) to when I was there..this was a fun night:

Majestic Theatre Broadway NYC Phantom of the Opera
It was New Year's Day/January 1st. Clark Kent* & I went to watch Phantom of the Opera at the Majestic Theatre. The show was at 7pm and we barely made it there after getting out of bed that morning (umm..I mean evening) It was the day after New Year's Eve after all, plus I was running on a mere 2 hours of sleep for the past 48 hours thanks to my early flight! The show was beautiful, I would definitely go again..

Russian Tea Room New York
After that, we went to the Russian Team Room for 10pm post-theatre dinner..aka our first meal of the day. This place was near the top of my list (wanted to visit for years actually) and I just had to go. This is my favourite dinner from that trip! The food wasn't as amazing as I expected but it was such a funny evening.

Russian Tea Room menu
Caviar Russian Tea Room
My appetizer: Buckwheat Blini and Red Caviar

Chicken Kiev Russian Tea Room
Main: Chicken Kiev #2. I found a rubberband in the first but the servers were extremely apologetic about it.

Czar's Gold and Caviar Parfait Russian Tea Room dessert
Dessert: Czar's Gold and Caviar Parfait - Nougat cream, toasted almonds, chocolate sauce and 24-karat edible gold! SO GOOD..

Russian Tea Room tiramisu
Clark Kent's* tiramisu (?)

  5. Looks so much fun. Too bad the chicken wasn't that good. At least the dessert looked yummy, I like the interiors of The Russian Tea Room. I got to try it next time. Amazing photos of NYC. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. I've always wanted to try Russian Tea Room and I was going to do that when I was in NY but never made it there :( Next time hopefully. Reading your post made me think about which city I love more: New York or Paris... and I realised I can't even answer that. They are both so amazing that I just can't decide which I love most. I guess they're also so different from each other which makes it harder to decide. But as I said - both are amazing cities that I'm definitely gonna go back someday and that I've really started to love.

    1. you should try it next time!
      For me NYC is not entirely that much different from Toronto so I guess that's why I don't love it as much

  11. The theater looks gorgeous and I've always wanted to watch Phantom of the Opera, that's probably what I'd do all the time in nyc, just watched musicals and the such hahaha especially since I can't afford the shopping there, oh and museums of course =) I think that's so sweet you miss Paris so badly, I somewhat know how you feel because I feel that way about Tokyo too sometimes and I've been there three times already and still wanna go back! I hope you get to go back to Paris soon and eat lovely foods and take pretty photos of us to see! I feel bad for nyc being left out in it's own post hahaha
