Not far from the Red Square you will find this hipster gem with a grand variety of Russian pirogi (pies), etc. The mors (soft refreshing drink made of berries) is house made and is excellent. All dishes are made from scratch, watchout for the time...More

Nikolai has one of the best pie I've ever had. I didn't try savory one but all fruit/sweet pies are great. Apple, blueberry pies are often sold out so don't wait till evening if you want a particular kind. I liked pumpkin, cheese pie too....More

It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street
the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one
direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in
Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian
restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life
with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like
visiting during the times when it was a medieval
Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th
