Moscow’s Papermoon is part of a well-established international chain of six such restaurants, stemming from the original branch in Milan. The interior is modern and smart, set out in dark wood and neutral colours.
rnChef Mario Carlino’s menu offers a large selection of classic Italian and Adriatic dishes, and the extensive wine list is drawn from the region. The highlight is the monochrome photographs of Hollywood stars on the walls, from Marlene Dietrich and Brigitte Bardot to Sean Connery and Nicole Kidman – see if you can name them all.
rnThere are four or five different dining areas, set over two floors – none is too large, so the atmosphere is cosy. A 30% discount on weekday lunches makes this the perfect place to stop whilst shopping in the nearby streets.
