Pifagor – Modern Greek Cuisine

A new Greek restaurant Pifagor (Pythagoras) has recently opened in Moscow. Pifagor belongs to Alexander Rapport Restaurant Company which also includes Voronesh and Dr Zhivago, restaurants we like a lot.
We came to Pifagor for lunch and we fell in love with their delicious, modern Mediterranean kitchen. For starters we shared hummus, tzatziki which we accompanied with a yummy flat bread and a classical Greek salad. It was very tasty, nicely presented and it felt very fresh. Our main course consisted of grilled octopus and sauteed spinach topped with roasted pine nuts. The mains were to die for and the service was good taking in consideration that we were there in their first couple of weeks after opening. So now we have a list to try out from this menu as it was so good.
To be honest the restaurant's setting felt a little bit pretentious upon our arrival. The hostesses wearing white Greek tunics, contrast between black and gold, statues of Olymp gods etc. As a rule we prefer more simple setting. But we now think that the interior can be quite spectacular for a dinner visit. And we definitely plan a dinner soon!

… 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.
