Nostalgie is truly a Moscow gourmet hotspot. The high ceilings, velvet drapes and dark mahogany furniture of this regally formal dining room are enough to fill you with ‘nostalgia’ for those decadent times gone by.
rnOwned by Roland Bukov, this restaurant is renowned for its expensive yet creative French haute-cuisine menu, incorporating delicacies such as foie gras and a selection of cheese and home-made sorbets to die for.
rnThere is nothing half-hearted about this extravagant venue, which features a wine list of approximately 600 labels, as well as a broad selection of cigars to enjoy with an Armagnac.
rnDespite Nostalgie’s opulent formality, there is a cosy atmosphere, and it’s the perfect place to escape from the cold winter and unwind with a gluhwein. Jazz plays nightly from 9pm, except on Thursdays when they showcase the great Soviet composers.
