Red velvet decorated this cosy Russian delicatessen (more than restaurant) will “offer” all the caviar, salmon eggs and taramas you dream off. The numerous Russian and Polish vodka brands served with your order will make you a little dizzy. A good feeling when it is time to pay your bill.

I'm from Russia and I have some ideas about the Russian cuisine. 3 'Siberian pelmeni' in semi-warm broth, 2 microscopic 'blini' with 0,5 gram of fish eggs, and dessert with some vodka (why at dessert time?) would not qualify as 'Russian cuisine' even if it's a gastro, gourmand, etc.. place. One-off. Never again. Oh, by the way, the bill for... More

The freshly made blinis with salmon that defies everything I've tasted, were sublime. I had a few shots of the pepper vodkas throughout the meal, and I recommend you do the same. The... More

Description
Daru restaurant in Paris is just down the rue from the Russian Orthodox Cathedrale in little Russia – the perfect place for a home from home for nostalgic émigrés who have found their way here since 1918. The warm wood tables and paneling, blood-coloured banquettes and hanging lights, barrels of vodka, authentic art works and collection of glasses in proper sizes for sampling wine, beer, vodka – there are never fewer than 20 on offer – create a cosy ambience for meals and conversation. The menu focuses on the great Russian dishes: blinis and salmon, zakouskis, borscht, caviar, beef stroganoff and more.
