Russian restaurant recs?

ml7 | Mar 8, 2011 03:02 PM

I know that Brighton Beach is the place to go, but I have some out-of-towners coming in who are requesting Russian food, and we are strapped for time and can't make it all the way out there. I'm looking for decently authentic food that isn't ridiculously expensive (so no Russian Tea Room).

My search has led me to Mari Vanna or Russian Samovar, but I have zero knowledge of Russian food and no experience with either. Any suggestions of one or the other? Or any other Manhattan places that would fit the bill?

Thank!
