The menu features “Imperial-influenced dishes, as seen through the contemporary and cosmopolitan lens of New York.”

Here’s a look around Brasserie Pushkin (formerly known as Cafe Pushkin), the first New York project from Russian mega-restaurateur Andrey Dellos. He imported Andrey Makhov, the executive chef of his celebrated Cafe Pushkin in Moscow, and also a pastry chef by the name of Emmanuel Ryon, who makes sweets that are sold in a cafe area in the front of the space. The menu features “Imperial-influenced dishes, as seen through the contemporary and cosmopolitan lens of New York.”

So, expect traditional fare like beef stroganoff, blintzes, and blini with caviar, all executed with a bit of a modern twist. Most entrees are priced above $30, and there are several big cuts of meat on the menu including veal chops, pork chops, and a ribeye steak. The dining room, which is spread out over two floors, has plenty of ornate woodwork, huge chandeliers, and 18th Century-style paintings. Brasserie Pushkin is now open for dinner.

the menu extends beyond chicken kebabs, with noodles and soups, tofu skewers in a dark miso sauce, and a smattering of seafood.

Although yakitori means “grilled chicken” (usually on a stick), the time-honored working-class Japanese food that is the featured dish at this second-floor Midtown restaurant is taken beyond its usual place as street fare with the restaurant’s use of premium chicken. Seated at the bar or at a row of small tables in one of two dining rooms, the predominantly Japanese crowd favors its grilling done in the traditional manner (i.e., not cooked all the way through). If rare poultry makes you nervous and you don’t want to look like a timid American by ordering it well done, the menu extends beyond chicken kebabs, with noodles and soups, tofu skewers in a dark miso sauce, and a smattering of seafood. Most dishes seem designed for accompanying drinks, especially sojou and sake, which, for their part, can make negotiating the steep one-flight staircase down to the street something of an adventure as well. — Ethan Wolff
