Absolutely nice place to go to. Amazing food, friendly and helpful staff, nice establishment, good atmosphere. Close to a perfect place for a nice dinner. Just one remark, a starter should be served before the main dish, that's why it is a starter! :)

The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by
Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights
Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers
along with the White House - where the Russian
government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and
casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo,
National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of
fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral
