Crabs Are Coming Danilovsky Market 

Crabs Are Coming, a specialized restaurant focusing on dishes made from crab, has moved from its original spot on Kalashny Pereulok to the trendy Danilovsky Market. The new space has an all-wood design and seats about 10. The chef is still Roman Kwon, but the menu has been reduced to just four dishes: udon with crab for 390 rubles ($6.90), rice with crab (370 rubles), steamed bun with crab (300 rubles), and cream soup with crab (350 rubles). 



Bric-a-brac by Gorky Park 

Svalka, the flea market that used to be held at the NIIDAR industrial space, has moved to a permanent location under the Krymsky Most bridge, between Gorky Park and Muzeon. For those moving house, Svalka will fetch the stuff you no longer need and sell it, with 70 percent of the profit going to charity. Apart from second-hand clothing there are books, furniture and antiques - mostly under 500 rubles ($8.80).
