Kaukazo Belaisvė: "Will the real Russian Mafia please stand up!" Vilnius Restaurant Tip by jrgentle

Vilnius Restaurants: 192 reviews and 291 photos


Since we were in the former Soviet Union, and this could possibly be the closest we ever get to real Russian food, we decide to go to a Georgian Restaurant that night. Well the place was splendid. The food was really great and the staff were, like everyone else in the country, very friendly. But without a doubt, the best thing about this place was seated at table next to us. We managed to sit next to about 18 members of the Russian Mafia. They were so cool. Our table was also next to the window. We would see a large Mercedes pull up, 4 guys all dressed in black would get out, come in to the restaurant, 4 guys would get up from the table and go get in the car. The new guys would sit down and food would just be brought to them. Without ordering. On the back row of the table sat the ?Dons?. They never got up; they just talked to all the guys that came in. This went on all night. Occasionally one would come in with this tall bombshell on his arm and introduce her to the table. They would all coo their approval and then she would sit and not say another word all night. Put it this way. If these guys were not the Russian Mafia, then the real Russian Mafia should come in and take notes.

Favorite Dish: They made us a dish we could not refuse.
