Las Vegas does not scream Russian food, but after eating at Cafe Mayakovsky it definitely should. This is a great place to branch out and try new cuisine with friends and family. Cafe Mayakovsky is in the storefront that once housed the Liberace Museum years ago. As you step inside from the desert heat you are transported into a different world in the cool dark caress of the interior. The ceiling opens above you to reveal red duct work, red painted cement walls, and a beautiful mural of Russia. The tables are preset as in fine dining, white napkins contrasting the dark tables elegantly.
Café Mayakovsky has well-portioned orders for the price. Our tab was under $50 even with ordering a Russian salad, appetizer, entrée, dessert, and beverage. A family of four could easily afford a meal complete with appetizers, entrees, and desserts for under $100 and likely not finish it all. Ordering a couple in each category and eating family style would be the preferred way to taste more dishes and save money while creating a new experience.
Café Mayakovsky is centrally located, has ample parking, and is easy to get to. It is also not even a mile away from UNLV, has fast Wi-Fi, delicious food, and a quiet and smoke-free atmosphere, students should be flocking here. It has the potential to be the next meet-up for study (and eating) groups. The atmosphere here is very comfortable. This location would work as a great date spot or a place to bring the whole family to step out of your comfort zone and expand your cultural palate.
