JMJ Visited the Russian Tea Time restaurant after a lovely visit to the Art Institute because it's only 1/2 block away. Had visited it before but now had more family members to enjoy it with. The staff was excellent about the size of our party and the fact we had children with us. Even though it was expensive, we felt the children and guests should experience the cuisine and ambiance of The Russian Tea Time. We tried to order different things and we shared with each other; the staff brought extra plates for the children to share. The tea kept flowing with refills and the water glasses were constantly kept filled. The borst was delicious and all the meat dishes were excellent. Save up and treat yourself to excellent food and excellent service.
