Friends, how many of you have been to USSR? Yes, USSR, a country that used to be half-enemy, half-friend. We offer you a chance to make a trip to the past, to the country that no longer exists
We are an entirely genuine Russian Restaurant in Austin. The main attraction of our restaurant is our food. All our chefs are of Eastern European descent and have experience cooking in Russia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan, to name just a few countries. We have tried to account for all tastes and introduce (or in some cases re-familiarize) our guests to not only Russian, but original Uzbek, Ukrainian, and Siberian cuisines.
Our wealth stems from the people that work for us. The Executive Chef of the restaurant, Vladimir Gribkov, has 25 years of experience and is an expert in Russian cuisine. Along with our delicious meals Vladimir also prepares all our House made drinks and vodka infusions. We are the only bar you will find with over 100 house-infused vodkas. All of our infusions are made by ancient Russian recipes, only using organic fruits and vegetables, with an unimaginable variety of flavors.
Traces of USSR are evident throughout our authentic décor, specially selected in Russia by famous designer
When you walk in our door do not be in a hurry to sit at your table. Slowly move along our walls and take in all the displays. Misha, our Russian bear, will meet you at the door. We welcome you to take pictures with Misha in the variety of Russian attire we have present specifically for you to try on.
Our main dining area and private rooms are styled to look like an apartment of a Moscow citizen in the beginning of the 20th century. Every room is made in its original design of the Russian or Eastern style. At the bar and patio don’t forget to look up! A ceiling painting in the style of Khokhloma can be seen in the patio and a map of the Soviet Union looms over the bar top.
Live music of Russian and Balkan styles as well as many Austin bands are frequent guests of the Russian House. Follow the live music schedule on our website and be sure to come see some shows.
