Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Moscow

Bon
Expeditsya
It would be snobbery to dismiss Expeditsya as a tourist-trap gimmick when the locals have so fully embraced the venue. Allow your imagination free rein as you forge your way through a smorgasboard of hunter's delights.
Sirena
Classic seafood restaurant that has remained popular for the best of twenty years.
Gusyatnikoff
Combining the perfect amounts of relaxed atmospheric splendour and even better Russian cuisine.
Veranda u Dachi
Try your hand at the Chinese tea ceremony, relax with a hookah pipe or enjoy a leisurely Sunday lunch at Veranda.
Noyev Kovcheg
Colourful stained-glass screens and mosaic floors create a pleasant impression of warmth hospitality and comfort at this Armenian restaurant.
Pavilion
A trendy fusion restaurant in the upmarket restaurant district of Patriarch's Ponds.
Bed Cafe
The critical quandry after a day of sightseeing is whether to rest or rejuvenate. Bed undoubtedly is the best answer to both options.
Goodman’s
Don't be put off by the plain dimly lit interior: Goodman's offers the best burgers and steaks in town.
Yoko
Moscow's answer to fabulous Japanese cooking.
Peperoni
Authentic Italian flavours and a classy atmosphere to match.
Shafran
Be transported to a far-off land of falafel, hummus and pitta bread at this beautifully decorated Lebanese restaurant.
Maharaja
Should you fancy a curry in Moscow, this is the place.
Barashka
Barashka is one of several restaurants in this area but it is quite hidden. Don't be deterred, this Azeri cuisine eatery is incredibly good value and has a wonderful wine selection - it's worth finding.
Uzbekistan
The Uzbekistan has proven time and again that it knows just how to keep its clientele happy.
Na Melnitse
A rustic Russian dining experince.
Nedalny Vostok
Pan-Asian restaurant bringing the Orient one step closer to Moscow.
Paname
If you're in this part of town, chances are you've fallen victim to the irresistible charms of Stoleshnikov Pereulok's shops. If you've just blown your budget then haul your loot to French bistro Paname which will be much kinder on your pocket.
Glavpivtorg
A beer restaurant housed in the former Soviet Foreign Ministry with rooms that are themed accordingly. Intrigued?
Los Bandidos
You might find yourself feeling a little geographically confused or linguistically baffled by the end of your meal at Los Bandidos but it's definitely worth it.

Elegant but informal, Antinori's Zürich outpost has oodles of Tuscan charm
Uilliam’s

Scandinavia
A far cry from the gilded opulence you might find in many of Moscow's restaurants, Scandinavia is simple and stylish.

Gorki
With Tchaikovsky Concert Hall just down the road, Gorki is the perfect place for pre- and/or post-performance meals. And if you don't know what on earth 'soviet-chic grandeur' is, this is the time to find out. You can even order a 'surprise'.
Momo
