Top Restaurants in Moscow
A Moscow-must, this café serves the finest, most authentic Russian food you’ll ever find (the borscht and the beef Stroganoff are not to be missed). Bonus: It’s open 24-hours.
This is the place to be seen in Moscow, a glamour show of the highest degree. And if you’re paying attention, you’ll notice that the food off of the continental menu is excellent, too.
Owned by Arkady Novikov, the king of Moscow eateries, this place caters to financiers and runway models. The menu is heavy on Kamchatka crab (hence the oversized tank of live crabs by the open kitchen).
Located on the 22nd floor of the Russian Academy of Sciences building, this restaurant offers a 360-degree view of the city. The menu is a fusion of Japanese and European.
Tiflis is the best-kept secret in the former Soviet Union. Fill up on succulent grilled meats and other mouth-watering Georgian fare.
An A-list, super-pricy, over-the-top destination that features more gold leaf and ornate frescoes than you’ll see anywhere else in Moscow. The menu is Pan-Asian.
