Samovar to bring Russian cuisine to Rockville; update on Miso Café

The latest dining addition to Rockville Town Square will be Samovar, a 3,353 SF restaurant featuring the cuisine of Russia with Eastern European and Central Asian accents. Father-daughter owners Solijon Nasimov and Ika Nasimova have over 25 years of experience in the industry, with restaurants in New York, Colorado, and their home country of Tajikistan. This is their first DC-area venture. they are also the caterer for the Russian Trade and Cultural Missions and Tajikistan Embassy in the District.

Samovar will feature live music on weekends, and is expected to open this July at 201 N. Washington Street.

Meanwhile, an update on my previous report this week on Miso Café. It turns out Miso will be a Korean fusion restaurant, not Japanese as I assumed from the name. The owners, who have an existing outpost in Annandale, hope to open this summer at Rockville Town Square.
