Caviar Bar – St Petersburg

When in Russia eat caviar and live like a Czar. I decided to visit The Belmond Grand Hotel Europe in St. Petersburg. Its a famous established old school hotel that hosts a good mix of well to do locals and travelers. It has a caviar bar and after a long day, I book the last seating of the night on a weekday.


Its empty but beautiful space. IMG_0412

Lots of Dom…IMG_0389

The cart of happiness… I want to try them all…IMG_0388

I review the menu. I go for a three course meal. IMG_0390

The bread was really good. IMG_0391

Amuse bouche… IMG_0392

I order bubbles I have never seen before, and its not bad. IMG_0393

Then it arrives… the caviar… it was good, just the right amount. IMG_0394

I prep…IMG_0396

And I clear every single one… IMG_0397

I went over Thanksgiving so I order a bird… again it was good. IMG_0404

Then I order a dessert named after the famous Russian Ballerina Anna Pavlova. Again it was good.


Legend says that she sat at this table before performances and touched the fountain head for good luck, so I do the same.  IMG_0398IMG_0400

Then it is time for tea and a few last sweets. IMG_0408

And one for the road! IMG_0410

I walk out after my great meal to find the lobby bars filled with locals. I decided to go for just one more drink… again it was good. IMG_0411
