GQ Bar

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.

Nedalni Vostok

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).
