The story of the restaurant begins back in 1871 when the grand-grandson of the first restaurateurs of St. Petersburg Konstantin Pavlovich Palkin opened a restaurant on the intersections of Nevsky and Vladimirsky Prospects. At that time there were 25 halls, billiard cabinets and a pool with sterlets. The usual guests were Chekhov, Tchaikovsky, Dostoevsky and later Block, Brussov and many others. Now the restaurant is a lot smaller but still surprises guests with its unique dishes among which is still starlet cooked according to the old recipe. It is worth paying a visit to the restaurant to feel the historical atmosphere and try the dishes, which were enjoyed by the famous Russian activists.
