Our neighbors and friends at the Hyatt Regency in Petrovsky Park have the holidays covered: whether you want comfortable family meals - with a special menu and special activities for children - or a hot night on the town with bottomless bottles of bubbly.
Christmas dinner Dec. 24 and 25
The Heritage restaurant on the main floor is offering a set menu for Christmas dinner, whether you celebrate on Christmas eve or Christmas day. From 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. you can enjoy starters such as buratta salad, beet pesto and seared scallops with a main of turkey and accompaniments. Dessert is a mousse-filled chocolate pudding. The price is 4,200 rubles, and includes sparkling wine.
New Year's dinner Dec. 31
If you are in a bit of a retro mood, or if you would like to have a new year's holiday with a big family, all with different tastes and preferences, the Heritage restaurant is offering an enormous and varied menu from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Dec. 31-Jan. 1. As the waiters pour sparkling, white and red wine, you and your family and guests might begin with something traditional for Moscow, like salad Olivier or "herring under a fur coat," or enjoy dishes with a Mediterranean vibe like octopus salad and Parma ham, cheeses, and cold meats and plentiful salads. Your main is a choice of salmon coulibac or roast beef, or duck roasted with five spices, or a selection of sushi, bliny, fish tacos and medallions of beef. Save room for the sumptuous desserts and enjoy the live entertainment.
While adults are enjoying their meal, children can have their own special food - mini beef sliders, crispy chicken trips, French fries and more - and happily entertain themselves with toys, games, and cartoons. The price is 11,900 rubles per person.
Party in the New Year at the Oriental Cocktail Bar
See in the new year high above the city with live entertainment, cocktails, free wine and a bottle of champagne for every couple. Along with music and the countdown to the new year, you can enjoy an Asia-inspired feast that includes toro tatare with beluga caviar, sushi, sashimi, makizushi as well as cold meat, fish and cheese; a salad of Asian-prepared shrimp or salmon dashi salad; and a main of duck breast with Asian vegetables or beef tenderloin with potatoes and yakiniku sauce. The price is 17,900 rubles per person. Note: only people aged 15 and older are permitted.
Lazy Family Brunch on New Year's Day
On Jan. 1 wander through magical Petrovsky Park - perhaps indulging in a bit of body sledding if the snowpack is good - and then from 12:30 to 6 p.m. start the new year with a relaxed and delicious brunch of Russian and international favorites. There will be plenty of starters and cold plates, such as smoked and marrinated fish, artisan meats, and a wide selection of European cheeses, along with tabbouleh and gado-gado salad, Thai chicken coleslaw, and a calamari salad with bok choy, avocado, cherry tomatoes and flax seeds. After a refreshing soup - butternut or fish solyanka - enjoy lamb tagine, chicken tabaka and another half-dozen treats, including dishes for vegetarians, such as spicy bulgar pilaf with chickpeas. While live jazz plays in the background and your children enjoy their own menu, toys, games and other entertainment, indulge in a bit of dessert, such as black forest cake and strawberry cheesecake, or light tarts and fresh fruit. After all, you only celebrate the start of 2022 once! The price is 7,990 rubles per person.
Children, where permitted, are served for half-price, and the littlest little ones are free. For more information and to make a reservation, see the site here.
