Restaurant Description
Set in historic Herndon, the Russia House Restaurant offers Russian hospitality and culinary excellence in all its details. The restaurant opened in July of 1992 by the friendly owners Ali and Homeyra Darugar, and together they created an atmosphere of aristocratic dining with classic cuisine, with the warm feeling that you are dining at your aristocratic grandmother's table. Mrs. Darugar moved from Russia with her grandparents to Switzerland, where she learned to cook in her grandmother's kitchen. She brought her great culinary talents here to the United States and created the exquisite menu and served as the head chef in the first few years the restaurant was opened. The restaurant features Russian, Continental and Georgian cuisine with a French flair. In A Warm and Relaxed Atmosphere You Can Enjoy A Party... · Private Parties For 10-100 People · Catering For Daytime & Evening Affairs · Holiday Parties On & Off Premises · Graduation Party · Engagement & Bridal Showers · Any Special Occasion Parties · Live Strolling Musicians on Friday & Saturday Evenings The amount of effort that the owners put into the culinary details is apparent from their ability to create a seemingly endless variety of tangy cream sauces, to the influence of French cuisine that is present in the use of herbs such as tarragon and dill and in dishes such as chateaubriand, served with bérnaise sauce. During the reign of the czars, the Russians brought in many French chefs, hence the French culinary influence. Many of the menu selections are actually prepared at your table such as the nicholcia flambé, a buttery-soft filet mignon prepared tableside using a small gas burner, the waiter sears the pepper-encrusted filet in a cast iron pan, then finishes it off with a reduction sauce, which is ignited with a splash of brandy, this entrée is accompanied by broccoli and marinated beets and deliciously creamy scalloped potatoes.
