How to Celebrate the Holidays on Wednesday in Moscow

21 Food Market offers more than 20 upscale food shops and downscale prices.

Here's a good way to start getting into the holiday spirit: go to The 21 Food Market's birthday party.

If you don't already know, The 21 Food Market opened last year as a kind of upscale food court: more than 20 mini-restaurants offering everything from Indian to Uzbek food, all conceived and cooked by mostly young, always food-obsessed chefs. Feel like a falafel? Get it at Gelman. Crave a crab cake? Go to Crab 'n' Caviar. You want Italian but your BFF wants Asian? No problem. The 21 Food Market has it covered.

Starting this month, the Food Market will be highlighting one national cuisine every month. December's cuisine in the spotlight is Israeli, so if you love hummus, falafel and tabouli, head on over.

On Wednesday night, the gang is celebrating their first birthday with DJs, music, celebrities, foodies and lots of food and drink. No cover charge; come and party until you drop or the clock strikes midnight.

The 21 Food Market. 21 Novy Arbat. Metro Smolenskaya. +7 (495) 691 7787. Wed. from 7 p.m. to midnight.
