makes me a little sad that you have Starbucks over there (espeially as they don't even do good coffee!)... it's like when I went to beijing and found kentucky fried chicken, or macdonalds all over thailand... i love the culture shock and this always ruins it for me
that said, we've had vodka bars for ages in London ... :}
O c'mon...Starbucks is everywhere and they might not have good coffee, but the carrot cakes and the brownies are to die for, imho I don't know any truly Russian-cuisine eateries, though. So I've no idea what kind of thing you'd expect to find here.
OK, now I am sad. Or offended. Haven't decided yet. Vodka really is NOT any kind of national signature. I mean, it was invented by Mendeleev, but no one seems to perceive the Period Table as a symbol of Russia. No-no-no, vodka - no good
