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!
