Moscow's White Rabbit restaurant has been ranked 18th in an annual list of the world's top eateries by the World's Best Restaurants publication.
The White Rabbit moved up five steps from the 23rd spot it received in the last year's listings, to become the only Russian restaurant in the top 20.
Two more Russian eateries joined the White Rabbit in top 100: restaurants Twins and Chestnaya Kukhnya, both based in Moscow, were ranked in 75th and 100th place respectively.
Located on the 16th floor of the Smolensky Passazh building in central Moscow, the White Rabbit is led by chef Vladimir Mukhin. Mukhin takes an unconventional approach to traditional Russian food by adding contemporary vibe to primordially Russian recipes, The World's Best Restaurants commented.
Italy's Osteria Francescana topped this year's list, followed by Spanish El Celler de Can Roca, last year's winner. New York's Eleven Madison Park rounded off the top three.
