Moscow Dining

Dining in Moscow is not just about eating great food. Dining in a fabulous Moscow restaurant can be a history lesson as most of the favorites were once old mansions or monasteries; their décor will make you feel as if you are visiting a museum, one filled with exquisite works of art. But there is no need to worry, as Moscow offers great cuisine for all tastes and budgets. There are renowned fast food chains as well as restaurants offering hearty home-made style food.

One of the top places for dining in Moscow is Godunov Restaurant, located close to the Red Square in Teatralnaya Square. Its halls were former refectory chambers dating back to the 17th century. Tables are made of heavy oak and the walls are decorated with numerous frescoes and paintings depicting several Russian periods in history. Its cuisine is genuine, with unpretentious dishes of seafood and beef. The waiters are dressed in national costumes and offer excellent service. Russian folk dancers entertain you while you dine. It is truly a wonderful choice.

White Russia, a typical Belarus restaurant, is also at the top for dining in Moscow. Belarus cuisine consists of a delightful combination between Ukrainian, Russian and Lithuanian culinary traditions. One of the specialties is “draniki,” a potato dish made in 30 different ways with meat, fish, red caviar or cowberries.

Tip: The restaurant offers a special menu for family dinners on Sundays, as well as a children’s program that includes clowns and jugglers. The prices are very reasonable.

For those with discriminating taste, the Pushkin Café, claims to be the best restaurant in Russia, offering magnificent early 20th century décor and fine dining. There is a special breakfast menu and though the prices are a bit high, it’s well worth it.

For an amazing dining in Moscow experience and for the adventurous at heart who enjoy hunting and fishing, there’s the National Russian Hunting Club. All the meals in this fine restaurant are prepared with meat of wild animals that were caught on Russian Federation grounds, and the seafood dishes are prepared with fish strictly caught in Russian rivers and lakes. The chef insists on creating mouthwatering dishes using recipes that date back to the 17th and 19th centuries. Some of the specialties include ostrich’s meat with fruits and walnuts, quail in cherry sauce, fish mosaics, lynx’s shoulder or bear chop. The walls are decorated with hunting trophies and pictures of the hunt and fishing trips.

On A Budget
If your visit to this great city has you on a budget, you’ll be happy to know that dining in Moscow does not have to break the bank. You will find great home-style Russian cuisine in places like the Mu-Mu Café or the popular chain Elki Palki where you can try Russian specialties while enjoying popular and folk singing.

Be adventurous and try it all. Dining in Moscow will not be a disappointment; in fact, it will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of your trip.
