Moscow Restaurants: News & Openings

45th Parallel

Global cuisine, rich decor

45th Parallel offers a round-the-world selection of cuisines — think New York salad, Basque country tuna and Chinese dim sum. The restaurant has a chestnut-colored interior, dimmed lighting, comfy chairs and smartly dressed waiters. With dinner for two coming in at 5,000 rubles it's toward the pricey end of the scale but still definitely worth it for a special occasion.

Zelyonaya Sobaka

Zelyonaya Sobaka

Something for everyone

Wooden furnishings, high ceilings and a green and white paint job give Zelyonaya Sobaka (Green Dog) a modern yet agrarian feel. Adventurous diners will be drawn to the veggie dishes with a Russian twist, for instance tofu in coconut milk accompanied by dill and cranberries. Or just grab a Guinness with your steak and chips or choose from the staple menu of salads, soups and pasta.

Red Cafe

Red Cafe

Relaxed venue with great coffee

Although the signs still say Red Espresso Bar, a completely unrelated Red Cafe is now open on the site. Red Cafe is a mix of a coffee shop, restaurant and bar. It's strong on espresso-based drinks and cakes, but there's also plenty of food and cocktails on offer. Portions are small but food is tasty and inventive, like the new take on the traditional Russian Olivier with chicken and tobiko.

Buro Vkusa

Buro Vkusa

Poolside dinner

Buro Vkusa is a new cafe located at the ground floor of the immensely popular Chaika outdoor swimming pool. Since it's at a sports facility, the food leans toward healthy, although you can still get a burger (380 rubles). Beer and cider, including a hot homemade variety, are available, but no hard liquor. Beef Stroganoff has that feel of home cooking (650 rubles), while the seared tuna salad (490 rubles) tastes positively Californian.
