Afternoon Tea At Katia's
Katia's offers afternoon tea service in the Russian tradition. We use a samovar and
serve tea in glasses in podstakanniki (silver glass holders). Tea service is available by reservation and for groups only. Casual tea service is available during our
regular lunch or dinner hours, as space permits. Celebrate a festive event
with a group of friends or co-workers, plan a pre-theater or post deYoung Museum
visit gathering and enjoy the unique experience of a Russian tea party at Katia's.
