Demyanova Ukha: Description

Demyanova Ukha Restaurant in St. Petersburg, Russia

One of the few restaurants in St. Petersburg that has survived from the Soviet period, Demyanova Ukha on the Petrograd Side remains enormously popular - booking is recommended - thanks to a reliable menu of classic, simply prepared Russian fish dishes, including several types of ukha, a traditional fish broth that should always be accompanied with a shot of vodka. The no-frills interiors of the restaurant have been discretely modernized, but otherwise this is a great place to soak up a little Soviet atmosphere, and one of very few places in town that serves decent local fish.
