About Us

Pushkin Russian Restaurant proudly bears the name of the great Russian author Alexander Pushkin (1799 – 1837) – the poet, playwright and prose writer who is credited with establishing modern Russian literature through his reinvention of classical Russian poetry. This helped to break down the established literary barriers and set the foundation for future Russian authors such as Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov and Bunin. Pushkin’s legacy lives on through his literary works, including his famed novel in verse, Eugene Onegin.
