Aviator on Presnenskaya embankment
For magic and alchemy - here. This restaurant specializes in molecular cuisine. Chefs, using knowledge of the chemical and physical properties of the product, can give any dish a new shape, smell and texture. For example, turning fruit into gel and cheese into stone.
The menu is eclectic: along with borscht and pumpkin soup that has already become traditional for Moscow restaurants, foie gras in tangerine jelly, pancakes with black caviar and Norwegian trout tartare are served here. The stones made from Grand Podano cheese on the snow made from olive oil (980 rubles), salmon with avocado jelly with golden mango and red orange gel (950 rubles) will really surprise you.
In addition to the menu rich in names and the spectacular presentation of dishes, the restaurant guests are provided with gorgeous views of Moscow: the restaurant is located on the 52nd floor of the Federation Tower in Moscow City.

Sherbet restaurant chain

"Chicha" on Novinsky Boulevard
Chicha is a drink common throughout Peru. It contains cobs of black corn, pineapple peel and spices. In a restaurant named after himself, this drink costs 330 rubles. In general, the cuisine of Peru is very distinctive and can surprise even the most discerning gourmet. Chich serves thick casuela soups, corn and tacos, unique nikkei rolls, fish dishes prepared with Peruvian fruits and vegetables, seasoned with spices and hot sauces, and euphoric panna cotta (alfahor) and wagashi (mochi) with caramel and blueberries for dessert. In contrast to the exotic cuisine of Peru, the restaurant owners have decorated the interior in a minimalist style: spacious rooms with natural wood trim, high sofas ready to hide from prying eyes, panoramic windows and stylish paintings on the walls.

"Peshi" on Okhotny Ryad
It is for seafood dishes that this restaurant is considered one of the best in the capital. Guests are invited to independently choose their favorite specimen from the variety of inhabitants of the glacier or aquarium - from mussels and oysters to live crabs and lobsters. There are more than 30 types of fish alone. The interior of the establishment is also noteworthy: a meter-long plaster shell hangs on one of the walls. And from the windows of the restaurant, each guest will note a view of the Historical Museum and the Kremlin.
It is worth trying mackerel ceviche (1100 per 100 grams), akami tuna sushi (1100 per 100 grams), Japanese oysters (there are only 8 types of them - 450 rubles).
Dinner for two - from 5000 r.
"Technical school" on Bolshaya Dmitrovka
The founders of the "Technikum" decided to keep up with the rhythm of life in the capital and combined the restaurant gloss and the speed of fast food. The place is suitable for those who do not have time to delve into the complex names of gastronomic dishes, but want a quick, tasty and healthy snack. Hence the idea of the menu - simple but not boring. Each position is a reflection of the composition of the dish, and not its intricate verbal interpretation. For example, from salads you can choose grilled chicken with couscous, tomatoes and cilantro (490 rubles), from hot - fried potatoes and a poached egg with sour cream and pike caviar (390 rubles). For those who are in a hurry, there is fast food on the menu, but with a claim to restaurant quality - for example, a marbled beef burger (450 rubles).
By the way, this institution is literally surrounded by theaters, so the evening before the performance begins with the “Technikum” or continues after it.
Dinner for two - from 1500 r.
