Bread & Meat
Good food in Moscow City
Bread & Meat is a new café in Moscow City by the Australian chef of Zupperia and Glenuill, Glen Ballis. By "bread and meat" Glen actually means comfort food, and there's plenty of that. Try sweet potato soup with yogurt (220 rubles), baked chicken leg (490 rubles) or a tuna steak burger (590 rubles). Bread & Meat is co-founded by the Ping Pong Club of Moscow, which has installed a few tables right next to the café.

Eclairs in a fragrant setting
Eklerynaya Kler is a flower shop, trinket shop, eclair shop and coffee shop. This cute little stop on Kurskaya has just three small mosaic-covered coffee tables, a small case of freshly made and beautifully decorated eclairs and a simple coffee menu on a chalkboard. The abundance of flowers make the place smell amazing, and the eclairs are delicious. Order a big box to go or enjoy one, or three, by the window.

Georgian food with a view
Khachapuri has opened its fifth restaurant on Prospekt Mira. As with the others, this restaurant offers authentic and largely vegetarian Georgian cuisine at reasonable prices. Occupying the second floor of a modern wooden "dacha," it overlooks the old Moscow State University botanical gardens. Their khinkali — spiced Georgian dumplings — and eggplant rolls are a must.

Wine bar beyond the Garden Ring
At Vinny Bufet you can order wine by the bottle or glass (starting from 210 rubles). The food is quite pricey, but all the cheeses are supplied by Russian producers in the Leningrad and Tver regions. While the Reblochon is not as pungent and runny as it should be, the Camembert is pretty good, and the marbled beef chips and tapas are the perfect accompaniment to your tipple.
