On a dreary Thursday morning (the day after I got engaged!) I went with Linnea Covington to photograph Onegin, a new Russian Restaurant over on West 4th street. It was quiet when I walked in to see Linnea speaking with one of the managers of the place. They were talking about how the restaurant was named after Eugene Onegin (one of the books that Pushkin (the pioneer of all Russian Literature) wrote. The story tells of a man, Onegin and how he rejects the love of a woman then desperately regrets it later. (It’s a lot more complicated, maybe you guys should wikipedia it– if interested.. or better yet, Read it!) Anyway, the restaurant is decked out in writings from the book strewn across the ceilings and tables and decorations that screams classic! We were able to taste a three-course meal cooked up by chef, Ilze Ritina- which were amazing and drink delicious Russian Tea.
