Russian Tea Room for a drink?

I've done a bit of looking and the reviews of this "Russian Icon", pun intended, are all over the place. I think what that means is that I am not all that interested in plunking down a lot of cash for food that might or might not be good. But my partner would love to visit the place. She said it would be great to at least say we had a drink there. So my real question is does this place have a bar where we can sit and have just a drink and do people watching????

In Rome, the restaurants Baby and Imago

I'm going to Italy in May and will be in Rome for my 60th birthday. I'm looking for a great restaurant for dinner. Both of these restaurants are Michelin 1 stars and get great reviews. My real questionis what is the price ranges and will either of them live up to the rep and rating?

Pasta with Caramelized Tomatoes and Sausage

Tried it and loved it. Also tried whackfood's version. I like the addition of the basil, onions, garlic, and peppers. But found that the sauce was better, lighter, fresher with the grape tomatoes. So that is what i now use.
