Fodor's Expert Review Pavilion
Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.
If you've ever wondered how Soviet officials dined, head to this retro eatery in an old mansion with views onto Patriarch's Ponds, immortalized in Mikhail Bulgakov's Soviet-era novel The Master and Margarita. Black-and-white photos cover the walls, and the servers are dressed in typical Soviet garb. The kitchen turns out updated versions of classic Russian dishes, including house-pickled vegetables, smoked fish, and crispy chicken Kiev. Sip homemade vodkas like hrenovukha, infused with horseradish, while enjoying live music in the evenings. The desserts are memorable and beautifully presented.
