Restaurants in St. Petersburg
St. Petersburg's culinary scene reflects its location on the sea and you'll find fish on practically every menu. Most St. Petersburg restaurants are packed into the heart of the city and have menus in English; farther-flung options are a bit more limited but also less expensive.
- Traditional Russian cuisine includes dishes such as borsch (a vegetable soup served hot or cold) and blini (a type of pancake). If you're in the mood for a trip back in time, try the homey 1913 restaurant on Voznesendsky Prospekt to sample the huge menu of 19th- and early 20th- century fare. Bonus: It's relatively inexpensive.
- Just steps from the Baltic Sea and Park Inn, the Vinaigrette's award-winning chef prepares dishes from all over the works; those inspired by Russia, Georgia, and Asia are especially well done. Not only is the food an experience, but there are fantastic views in every direction. It's hands-down one of the best restaurants in St. Petersburg.
- Restaurants in St. Petersburg serve cuisine influenced by Asian, European, and African cultures; Kilikia, for example, is a great place to try Armenian dishes such as lamb kebab.
