"A taste of old Russia in Newton Center"
Set in Newton Center, Cafe St. Petersburg offers Russian hospitality and culinary excellence to the fullest.
Cafe St. Petersburg originally opened in April of 1993 in Brookline, by 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 a classic Russian cuisine.
To this day, Ludmila is still the Chef de Cuisine and would not have it any other way. She learned many of her specialties from her mother-in law, Galina Zelenskaya. Today Galina lives on through Ludmila's cooking. It was a special relationship that blossomed into the modern day Cafe St. Petersburg.
During his lifetime, Natan Slezinger was a respected photographer and a theatre producer in Russia, who then made a name for himself in the Russian-American community in Boston. He and Ludmila created a welcoming environment for all at Cafe St. Petersburg, where his old friends and former business-partners continue to visit today. The restaurant is frequently visited by artists, writers, musicians, actors and politicians from Russia and other parts of the world. Anyone who visits can enjoy wonderful food and exciting spontaneity, as the night may occasionally become an impromptu concert or a poetry reading.
