russian shabby chic : mari vanna

Mari Vanna is a Russian restaurant that opened in June in New York city's Gramercy neighbourhood. It's been described as someone's Russian lady's shabby chic apartment in St. Petersburg – only with a much larger vodka selection. The restaurant is officially taking walk-ins this week (initially only open for private parties). I love everything about this room – from the chandeliers, wallpaper to the dusty shelves of books. Gorgeous space! Anyone up for Russian fare?
