Russian Tea Room in New York

History and Theatre
The Russian Tea Room is the place to be in terms of location, history and art. Proudly displaying a number of artworks by Picasso and Matisse. In addition, it was Madonna’s first New York workplace. Located in Midtown, the Russian Tea Room is right next to Carnegie Hall and close to Lincoln Center. A lot of the interior dates back to the original 1927 building, though extensive renovations have kept it looking it’s best.
