It’s no secret that Toronto is home to numerous unique dining experiences. Each one set to be as memorable as the last. And this year, visitors will have the chance to step into another culinary journey at the Moscow Tea Room. We’re talking fine dining, elegant decor and the works. Originally based in Ottawa, this will be the restaurant’s second Canadian location.

Moscow Tea Room
So what can one expect at a Russian tea room? A lot more than just your simple high tea service that’s for sure. The Ottawa menu has a primary focus on all things seafood. Featured dishes include everything from oysters and salmon to lobsters, sushi and more. Guests can also sample the Moscow Seafood Platter, which comes with a mix of shrimp cocktail, sashimi, Atlantic lobster and other items.
The restaurant hosts a separate wine and champagne menu. Whether customers are looking for white, rosé or red, they’ve got it covered. The list of cocktails is also an extensive one and they offer bottled beer.
Moscow Tea Room’s most common clientele includes ministers, ambassadors and industry giants. The interior is modelled after the original The Russian Tea Room in New York City, which was first established in 1927.
The Toronto location will be opening in Yorkville later this year. It’s going to be at 161 Yorkville Ave, the spot’s previous occupants being Sorelle and Co., which closed in 2018.
