This restaurant really surprised me. My wife found out about this restaurant and when she told me about I immediately new we had to go! This restaurant is located very close to Christ the Saviour Church just a short walk from Kropotkinskaya metro station. The restaurant was built inside side in 18th century building and of course they remodelled it – four floors to be exact. Now I’m going to be honest here and tell you that this review is not of the entire restaurant. I only had the opportunity to go to the cafe which is located on the first-floor. As soon as you walk in the décor is beautiful with dark Bordeaux reds, black and mixed with some beautiful accent lighting. So I go said as soon as you work in your greeted by this beautiful all the friends feeling and a pair of beautiful hostesses, waiting to assist you. To the right is a staircase leading to the other floors and to the left is an open doorway leading to the cafe area (the picture says more).
Let’s get to the food. Where do I start? Well, from this meal I ordered the pastrami and my wife ordered a beef hamburger. Just a clue: the website does offer a menu consisting of 30 different cuts of meat, several variations of ribs (short-ribs with juniper, stewed and/or marinated in orange), venison, and rabbit – I’d say that if you’re thinking of visiting this place because you like meat, you won’t have a problem being satisfied! The pastrami came out hot, fresh, and dripping with sauce – just the way I like it. From the first bite, I knew that this perfect in every sense of the word. I felt like I was back in Katz Deli in New York City. The meat, the sauce, the bread. It was pure heaven! For drinks, I recommend milkshakes. Why? Because I love milkshakes and I don’t make it at home!
The prices in the cafe are very reasonable and there’s no reason a family of 4 shouldn’t eat here…I guess, unless you’re all vegetarian or something. But seriously, this is a place that I do not want to see leave. Oh and one more point: The meat is all Aberdeen Angus and they roam on an ecologically friendly farm, so we’re not getting any abused beef here – Only the highest quality beef…from Voronezh (click to see where Voronezh actually is in Russia)!
