So what if it looks like a set from Doctor Zhivago? It's good enough for Putin—plus various luminaries of the Western world, including Pierce Brosnan, John Galliano, and Prince Charles. Also, the quaint log house with a conical tin roof and a weather vane perched on top happens to have really good, authentic rustic Slavic food from any Baltic Rim tradition you can name—and some you can't: Moldavian Mititei with Mouzhdei sauce, anyone? (It's sausages.) Pumpkin soup with foie gras and berries, boar ham en croûte, and a huge array of spiced meats and kebabs grilled, most medievally, on open fires in the big courtyard are the kinds of thing to expect from a vast menu, some of which is listed with impressive cooking times. Unusual flavored vodkas (cowberry leaf?) speed the wait. This is an outing—it's 15 minutes by taxi from the nearest subway (Moskowckay Station) out of St. Petersburg and near the main entrance to Pavlovsky Park—but it's worth it, especially if you combine it with a trip to the Catherine Palace at nearby Pushkin.
