Restaurants in Russia

Have a delicious arugula salad while gazing out at Lenin’s mausoleum and St. Basil’s candy-colored domes—as we do one lunchtime.

Echoes of pre-Soviet Petersburg pervade the 1870 café, with its bamboo-accented décor and vintage chinoiserie. Locals sip Viennese coffee at outdoor tables.

Try Russian dishes such as roast duck with cabbage.

The ultimate enclave-of-the-rich experience is Novikov-owned Prichal, a lofty open-air pavilion set on the bend of a slow green river about a 40-minute drive outside the city, along the Rublevo-Uspenskoe Shosse, one of the most exclusive addresses on earth.
