NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A true holiday magic, not to mention a mouthwatering selection of chef-curated menu, are waiting for you this December in MariVanna. This booming Flatiron restaurant unveils a true soul of Russian hospitality through a unique combination of comfort, tradition and authentic food.  Upon entering, guests will find themselves in a spectacular wonderland of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, dazzling lights and traditional holiday scents. Feels like Santa is coming to town! Is your Christmas wish ready?

The concept of MariVanna has not changed since it opened in 2009. Filled with old charm and pleasant feeling of comfort, MariVanna is a “home away from home” and probably that is the main reason of the restaurant’s growing popularity. Upon entering, guests will be immediately transported to the Russian heartland, replete with homey furniture, elegant chandeliers, and most crucially, pitch-perfect renditions of the country’s culinary classics. While other upscale Russian restaurants alternately aspire to the imperial decadence of the Tsarist era or attempt to reconstitute the cuisine along avant-garde models favored by the zeitgeist, Mari Vanna embraces the classics that endured through Soviet times, serving up sizzling palettes of fried potatoes and mushrooms alongside meat cutlets, and pickles, followed by a slice of the classic Napoleon cake. It pairs excellently with an ice-cold shot of homemade infused vodka (be sure, there is a wide selection available!).

According to General Manager, Boris Artemyev, “Our food is inspired by what our moms and grandmothers used to make. It’s home cooking, from the heart, as one does for one's own children and grandchildren.”

And, just in time for holidays, this home-inspired restaurant readily embraces the tradition of Christmas festivities with multiple garlands and lights.

Visit us at 41 E 20th St, New York, NY 10003 to enjoy the holiday magic with us!
