Those huge jars of liquid behind the bar are not science experiments; they're vats of delicious, ferocious homemade flavor-infused vodka. One shot, served by the lovely bartendress, will knock you off your barstool. After two, you'll be cheering the end of the Cold War with the rest of the talkative Russians downing shots at the curved bar and front banquettes, or dining on caviar-topped blinis at the dimly-lit tables in back. With no windows, live piano music, and eccentric regulars, RVR makes it easy to get lost in the fun-house atmosphere.
