As your local Russophile, I am reporting that a brand-new Russian restaurant is set to open in DC next week. They have started with a soft open, reports the Washington Post, offering free vodka-infused shots to customers who’d like to stop by. Rumor has it, they’ll open with a full menu January 17th, 2013.
Mari Vanna is a ‘chain-let’ with restaurants open in New York City, London, St. Petersburg, and Moskva. Learn more about the soviet time capsule, an homage to bourgeois flats in the 1930s, here.
Don’t worry, I’ll have a full review to report soon.
