Russian Family Restaurant: 'Be Prepared to Put in 12 to 16 Hours' To spend a day in the shoes of the owners of the family-owned restaurant is to put in long hours but, at the end of day, know they've had at least one more satisfied customer.
A little bit about us: The main ingredient is the BOSS Tatiana!!!!! The young lady, who never dreamed to be in America, much less to have a business of her own. Tatiana was raised by single mother in the small resort town of south Russia close to Georgia. Since childhood she always was attracted to cooking, any chance she had to get a recipe from anybody she could she would try to perfect.
Once while working as an inventory clerk for one of the biggest construction company in Moscow (Mosstroy) there was a potluck the Russian style. Every body bring something and dump everything on somebody to make it work. And Tatiana was discovered. By the time Tatiana left for Good U.S.A. she was doing the banquets for the top bosses of the construction company and their elite cartel.
Vladimir practically lived most of his life in the States and always loved a good food (as the former brother in law said You finally got a woman that can cook!) went along with the idea to let his new wife to show the world how good Russian food should taste.
When we bought the business it had a different name but well known shop (Jean’s Pastry) in the area for forty years. And our profile complimented neither name or the business we tried to create.
Since we always tried to be authentic and traditional we decided to call it “Russian Family”
