Ludmila Tulman, Russian Restaurateur, Missing Since Tuesday


We received the following e-mail this morning. If you have any information, please help out:

My name is Masha, I wanted to let your blog know about my mother in law who has been missing since Tuesday (4/3/12) night.

Her name is Ludmila Tulman, well known in the Russian community as the previous owner of Restaurants Stolovoya/Pelmennaya on Ave U and Da-I-Net on 86th Street.

She is about 5’7, 160lbs, short red/brown hair, light eyes. Last seen on Brighton.  Left home at around 12am and never returned.   I am attaching a picture, if there is anything you can do to help us find her, it would be greatly appreciated.

You can contact me via email ([email protected]) or cell 917-699-7576.


  1. Barkingspider07 on

    I don’t believe that she is dead.  There would have been something in the Daily or Bay news, or on the regular news.  I hope that she is ok

  2. Curious & concerned on

    In Brighton Beach this happened and that’s where she was found? How come it was not in the news?

  3. Why is there no investigation? Seems like her children aren’t stirring anything up..

  4. I heard she owed a lot of money. Funeral was yesterday they found her body in the ocean. R.I.P

  5. sorry for your loss Masha I just heard the grueling news. Money had to be the motivation here

  6. I my god I known her since she opened pelmenaya on ave U but on this picture she doesnt look like her.Maybe you should post a different pic
