    Elegant Gastronomic Restaurants in Moscow

    Hi there,

    Do you know a few quite nice restaurants in Moscow, even if they're half-way gastronomic and elegant?
    Apart from Jeroboam & The Park restaurants of course...
    I think Mario's is more brasserie...

    Huh??

    I do know quite a few elegant restaurants in Moscow. Haven't been to most of them. I can think of better ways to throw my money away.

    So what's your point?

    We are not talking about E-X-P-E-N-S-I-V-E restaurants. Just to know quite a few restaurants with some quality.

    Name dropping is always fashionable. Well done.

    Care to drop some more?

    You Russians are crazy for the pretense of gilded elegance, even when the kitchen is full of illegal Tajiks, the service is appalling, and your date is a painted-by-the-numbers blonde from some ghetto outside the MKAD.

    Ah yes, quality indeed.

    Um, what exactly was your point?

    Briefly, first of all, think first coz you don't know at all who's russian and who's not; and second, due to many critics you've got in your mind regarding an issue we do not care in this thread, open a new one on your own explaining your way of thinking.
    You're totally out of the picture...and goin' deeper...

    Well we (g/f and I) have enjoyed:

    Cheese Hole (Sirnaya Dirka) - ==
    Cheese Restaurant (Syr) - Novikov Restaurant Group - Restaurants
    Cafe Pushkin -

    I also quite like 3/9 Tsarstvo / Tridevyatoye tsarstvo on Stariy Arbat (bar and restaurant), from days when I was in Moscow alone - but g/f is not so keen. I often take visiting English there though, and they seem to enjoy it (and it's not too expensive). It's at the end near Arbatskaya metro, on the right as you walk away from the station.

    Not making any great claims for any of them - but I've eaten well at all four and had good service. Have used the first two reasonably regularly as a couple, and 3/9 a lot on my own a few years ago.

    I think that there are two of these (if Genatsvale | Restaurant Review | Moscow | Frommers.com) is to be believed. I think I'll plan to try the one on Ostozhenka at the weekend ... thanks Andy!

    Oh yes, Turandot is a wonderful setting, and (I am told) good food and service too. Have yet to eat there!

    Turandot is good choice... Probably the most expensive restaurant in Moscow. Don't try Gorky on Tverskaya Str. There is extremely rude staff arguing with you about small tips!

    Hawk - it sounds very nice, can you give more details? Is it on Kropotinskiy pereulok? Can't remember the name, walked past it a few times, looks quite nice. (There's a signpost to it from Ostozhenka ul.)
