St. Petersburg, Russia: The Literary Cafe
Therefore, we were eating in the shadows of Saltykov, Shchedrin, Dostoevsky, and Pushkin. In fact, I learned much later that this supposedly was the last cafe (under different management, of course) that poet Aleksandr Pushkin ever visited. Maybe someone knew I wrote a travel blog, and thought I'd fit in.
The food was fine, although this tradition of a shot of vodka at the start of the meal does take an adjustment period.
