There’s no place better to drink like a Russian than at LA’s most authentic Russian restaurant. Traktir (Russian for “tavern”) serves classic dishes from borscht and smoked fish to vareniki dumplings and grilled shashlik skewers, along with a tasty set of vodkas infused in-house with fresh fruits and spices.
THE DRINK TO DRINK The fiery horseradish vodka is a real treat with any of the salty and sour zakuski (cold appetizer) options. KNOW BEFORE YOU GO Bringing a big group? Check out the banquet options, which get you a massive spread of food and a bottle of vodka for every 10 people in your party.
