Russian Tea Time: Come for the Tea, Stay for the Food

July 22, 2015 11:01 am

Russian Tea Time is the Loop's premier spot for Russian cuisine. Patrons find it as a perfect way to conclude an afternoon at the Art Institute. The staple Beef Stroganoff is made with lean beef pieces, cooked in sour cream, Madeira wine, mushrooms, onions dill and served over noodles. The Chicken Paprikash is also mouth-watering, chicken breast simmered in sour cream and paprika and served over polenta. Russian Tea Time also has an afternoon tea service which goes for $29.95 per guest and includes a pot of tea, scones, and a “savorie” which comes from a list of items including salmon and cream cheese. Obviously a large part of the menu is devoted to vodka, including flavors like horseradish and mint.
