Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Moscow

White Rabbit
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.
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.
Gusyatnikoff
Combining the perfect amounts of relaxed atmospheric splendour and even better Russian cuisine.
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.
Peperoni
Authentic Italian flavours and a classy atmosphere to match.
Vanil
A fabulous French and Japanese fusion restaurant with a view of Christ the Redeemer Cathedral.
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.
Goa
Young, casual fashion for that all-American look.
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?
Uzbekistan
The Uzbekistan has proven time and again that it knows just how to keep its clientele happy.
Kavkazskaya Plennitsa
Kavkazskaya Plennitsa serves the best Georgian food this side of the Caucus and uses local produce. All this to a soundtrack of Soviet classics makes for a memorable evening at this themed restaurant.
Galereya
Muscovite snobbery is alive and well here so put on your best face. It's all about image so you'll need to sparkle. But the food and company will make the effort well worth while.
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.
Macho Grill
Carnival style, South American inspired restaurant prepared to get your taste buds dancing
Scandinavia
A far cry from the gilded opulence you might find in many of Moscow's restaurants, Scandinavia is simple and stylish.
Shinok
Shinok tries to capture the essence of rustic life - complete with a babushka, farmyard and staff in traditional Ukranian costumes.
Oblomov
A three-storey mansion turned into a restaurant, Oblomov is abundant in choice, variety and adventure, from the hookah pipes in the attic to the assorted Russian memorabilia on the floors below.
