Cowart's Common Room

Actually this doesn't look unlike the restaurant in which Vladimir proposes to Elizabeth in St Petersburg but of course it isn't. It isn't in Vladivostock either but were you to keep on and cross and ocean and then another continent you would eventually come to the Russian Tea Rooms in New York built by emigrés in 1926. At least it is red and green and so might keep you warm and sheltered from the cold wind.

Camilla's Avatar Is the colour Red, Russia's chosen colour? even though there are swatches of Green I see in pic.

The Russian Tearooms look magnificent, what code of dress will the waiter be wearing, or waitress for that matter, and what is the Russian word for waiter?
Garcon we know in French.Very Happy

I'm not that au fait with Russian food, I wonder what would be on the menu?

Fennie's Avatar Borscht? Spring onions? Caviar? Sweet cake? Pelmeni (meat balls) and as this is New York, bagels, possibly.

Camilla, what is the English word for 'waiter?' Or rather what is the English word for someone who serves food in a restaurant but is not dressed as a penguin? I don't know. In France there are more penguins but I've never addressed anyone as 'garcon,' which in any case just means 'boy.'

Most waiters today are called 'excuse-me' in England and France and probably in Russia too.
