The Russian & Turkish Bath House in NYC’s East Village has been around since 1892 – longer than The Empire State Building. But most people don’t know that it houses a restaurant with a lengthy menu featuring Russian delicacies.

The bath house is part owned by Dasha and her husband Chris, who are part of the third generation of owners. With their staff, the couple details the traditional and sometimes quirky spa experience at the Russian & Turkish Baths, including the shvitz rooms, the ice-cold pool, Dead Sea mud massage, and the platza (oak leaf) healing therapy. In the restaurant kitchen, Chef Leon prepares classic Russian dishes like blini, borscht, Siberian pelmeni (beef dumplings), beef stroganoff, traditional Russian breakfast, much more.
