Feeling Peckish? Moscow Restaurant Week To The Rescue

At Beer Happens chef Timur Abuzyarov offers a tangy, smoky, whipped and airy meal.

This is a great time to be hungry in Moscow.

Fifty five of Moscow's top restaurants are offering a special 1,200 ruble ($18) meal invented, compiled, and/or designed especially for Restaurant Week. The restaurants represent a range of cuisines, from Aist to Zotman Pizza Pie, and include some of the city's finest chefs, such as Uilliam Lamberti of Severyane and Uilliam's and Vladimir Mukhin, chef at The White Rabbit — this year named one of the top 20 restaurants in the world on the Forbes list.

The theme of the festival is "pairing," specifically dishes that pair up nicely up with Singleton single malt whisky, one of this year's Restaurant Week partners. Shots of the single malt will be available at 300 rubles ($4.50) at all the restaurants taking part in the event.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
