It is inevitable that sometime after the president is impeached, indicted or committed, the inhabitants of Trump Tower are going to want to change the name of their residence. A safe bet would be something vanilla, like the Trump family’s chosen cover brand, Scion. But why not play up the building’s association with what will be the most written and gossiped-about presidency ever? At the same time, the new name should have an elegant, timeless feel. The “Russian Tea House” nicely satisfies both criteria.
