I was sceptical to go to the restaurant with my boyfriend as in some places they tend to speculate on people's feelings of nostalgia towards Soviet times. It is probably the same phenomenon as "nostalgia" in Germany -- goods and services related to that time...More

This is an incredible space with an incredible history. The restaurant has recently been separated from the rest of the Central House of Writers with different owners and, apparently, now a different chef (someone quite "trendy" in Russia and known for molecular gastronomy, as if...More

Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
