Set in Newton Center, the Cafe St. Petersburg offers Russian hospitality and culinary excellence in all its details. The restaurant opened in April of 1993 in Brookline, by the owners Ludmila and Natan Slezinger. In 2005 they found a new home for the restaurant in Newton Center. Together they created an atmosphere of aristocratic dining with classic cuisine, with the warm feeling that you are dining at your aristocratic grandmother’s table.
Mrs. Slezinger learned many of her specialties from her mother-inlaw, Galina Zelenskaya. It was a special relationship.
Cafe St. Petersburg is frequented by artists, writers, musicians, actors, politicians from Russia and around the world. Mr. Slezinger is well-known in Boston community and is also a respected theatre producer in Russia. His friends and business partners love to come to our restaurant and sometimes a night can become an impromptu concert or a poetry reading.
