Eating in Moscow. In the 24 hours (ok let’s say 28 hours) in Moscow we’ve managed to check out quite some cool restaurants and bars. Luckily, I had a lovely acquaintance who was living in Moscow and recommended some awesome places. Moscow being the largest metropolis has indeed lots to offer. You’ll find tons of traditional Russian restaurants, Soviet bars and a variety of hip and modern places as we’ve discovered some of them. Here are five great spots that you should definitely try on your next Moscow trip!

Eating in Moscow Grand Cafe Dr. Jhivago

Starting our sightseeing trip early in the morning the Grand Café Dr Jhivago was the perfect choice for an extended brunch with some Russian specialities. It is located on the backside of the Red Square directly in the centre. As soon as you enter you’ll find a modern restaurant decorated all in white and red with transparent Kartell objects. We ordered a lot of food and even managed to eat it all. Starting with a warm almond croissant, hot oatmeal and omelettes with mushrooms. Whenever I see Oeuf Benedict on the menu I have to go for that, which made three different meals for me. A really tasty speciality were the dumplings filled with cherries, which I highly recommend. Ah that was such a yummy fest and the perfect start into the morning. As you can imagine we didn’t need any lunch later.

Eating in Moscow Odessa Mama

Coming from the street you’ll already see a nice terrace outside with cute lamps hanging from the trees. This is right where Odessa Mama is located. I imagine summers here amazing! Somehow I didn’t feel like in Russia at all. It reminded me more of places I’ve seen in London. As soon as you enter you’ll be asked if you’d like to eat Georgian or Hungarian food. The Georgian restaurant is located on the lower floor, while the Hungarian restaurant in on the upper floor. This is great and makes you come more often. The interior is super industrial, with cozy music and friendly staff.

We were lucky to get a table because the rest of the restaurant was packed. Even though they had English menus in Moscow, they barely speak the language. One thing which was super cool was that they had a full book with pictures how the dishes would look like. This time we ordered a wide range of interesting things like a starter with cured pork belly, baked veal and apricot-chicken rollup (780 RUB – 11€), pike caviar (540 RUB – 7,9€), chicken hearts with sour cream and onion (5,4 RUB, which were delicious). I also took the stewed beef with cherries (630 RUB – 9,2€), which was so tasty. This was definitely comfort food and this spot is such a great recommendation!

Bars in Moscow Kitayskiy Letchik Dzhao Da

Later on that evening we also managed to go to one more bar for a nightcap. Luckily one really cool bar I’d saved was right next to our hotel and checked it out. The Kitayskiy Letchik Dzhao is a super laidback bar and they usually play live music. They have different rooms. I’m sure there are tons of bars like this one spread all over Moscow.

Eating in Moscow Uilliam’s

One more highlight was definitely dinner at Uilliam’s, which is a super trendy restaurant. As soon as you’ll get in the area you’ll already feel that the neighbourhood has more money. Uilliam’s was also packed for a Tuesday evening and we got a small table next to the open kitchen. Open kitchens are always great and you can also eat directly there. The whole restaurant has such a nice atmosphere. We had a nice starter with tartar and a little salad followed by delicious lamb chops and beef. It was all freshly prepared and tasted really well. All in all, I would come back again but the restaurant is slightly overpriced. On the other hand, good meat costs a lot of money and I’d rather spend a little more for good quality. And don’t forget to check out their bathrooms, which are probably the cutest I’ve seen in a long time.

Bars in Moscow Kalina Bar

For our last evening we chose a special location for some drinks. There are a couple of bars with an amazing view over Moscow and the most famous one is Sixty. However, the restaurant/bar is only open on weekends. Luckily, Kalina Bar was our next choice, which was view-wise great. Since we didn’t manage to go to the newer district Moscow City we got a nice overview from their top floor. Perfect ending to a great trip I’d say!
