Now, if you show me awesome people serving up great food for a good cause, I’m rushin right to it. And speaking of Russian …

That’s exactly what they serve here at The Royal Eagle … gourmet Russian cuisine in absolutely serene and beautiful surroundings. And it’s all done to help raise money for the St Sabbas Orthodox Monastery. Actually the restaurant is right inside this incredible institution and all proceeds go directly to maintaining its magnificence. So not only will your visit be filling … it’ll be fulfilling as well.

This inspiring structure is totally under the radar and completely tucked away on an unassuming side street in Harper Woods. You’re driving down the street by nice little manicured suburban homes when all of a sudden … boom … there it is.

You’ll find over six acres of serenity, manicured gardens, towering blue and gold domes and thanks to the Royal Eagle Restaurant, the aroma of Eastern European fare in the air. There are amazing treasures here for both your spirit … and the palate.

I had the distinct honor to sit down with Father John Pachomy and Chef Petr Balcarovsky to find out more about both this Russian restaurant and magnificent monastery.

Now, the restaurant does not have a license to serve alcohol … but fear not you libation lovers … because you’re aloud to bring in your own wine. And while you’re there feel free to take some time, stroll the grounds and reflect. It’s good for your digestion.

Sensational surroundings … an air of elegance … and a higher cause you just can’t beat. Now that’s true UTR type dining. If you get a chance, check out the Royal Eagle Restaurant at the St Sabbas Orthodox Monastery … because quite honestly … the food here is heavenly.
