Since 2018

Babushka's story has began in 2018, when an international student from Russia at USF has noticed a very interesting fact: Russian food is strongly underrepresented in the United States, particularly in Florida and Tampa Bay Area. You could find a wide variety of international cuisines here, but not Russian. Knowing that the cuisine is absolutely unique and, most importantly, tasty, a student convinced his family to open a first restaurant in Tampa Bay, serving authentic and homemade Russian and Ukrainian cuisines.
