Rasputin

As long as the subject has come up, I read about this joint in one of those "pick-them-up-for-free" newspaper things. There was an article that yakked about rasputin (what an unfortunate name! Prince Yussupov poisoned the old goat with tea cakes, so I think any baked items would be inherently suspect.)

Well, has anyone been there? I assume that the caviar and vodkas are good--that is the usual theme with Western versions of Russian restaurants--but what of the other goodies? Those of you who are familiar with Slavic foods might have an insight here. Is it worth the trip? Do they have any Russian soups OTHER than borscht?

Someone please provide the skinny on the place.

BTW, there is a nifty "Russian" grocery store out in Kenner "East European Imports" or something like that, just off Williams. They need out support. Go get their mushrooms and pickles. Cooks might want to try their spices. Lots of fun....
