Palkin restaurant is one of the oldest dining establishments in St. Petersburg and one of the few that have retained its original name and location
Its roots go back to the St. Petersburg restaurateurs, the Palkin family, the first mention of whom dates back to 1785.
Since welcoming its first guests in the summer of 2002, Palkin has sought to revive St. Petersburg's traditional atmosphere of "bread and salt" hospitality that dates back to the close of the 19th - the beginning of the 20th centuries. A visit to the Palkin is an authentic, proper acquaintance with the cuisine of Russian aristocracy, much of which has, sadly, been lost elsewhere. Those with a taste for the gourmet are welcome to savour dishes that once delighted top society in the imperial city of St. Petersburg. The restaurant's menu alters with the seasons, while special meals such as the Royal Lunch, Christmas and New Year dinners are available for only a few days, being especially popular with our regular guests. The ever in-demand sterlet (sturgeon) and lamb on the bone remain on the menu throughout the year. Deserts from the confectioner's studio and speciality made chocolates have also proved to be much-loved menu additions.
The restaurant's wine list presents over 120 vintages, mainly from France, Italy, Chile, among others. The rare wines kept in stock include the 1982 Chateau-Margaux Premier Grand Cru Classe and the 1988 Chateau Petrus Pomerol Grand Vin. On the bar menu, you can find over 30 brands of cognac, brandy, and calvados, more than 40 sorts of vodka, whiskey, and gin. The Palkin also offers a choice selection of cigars.
