Nourishing, efficient and attentive. That’s what can expect at The Burger Brothers restaurant located in the Red October district of Moscow
, right near the Moscow river and Strelka Bar. The menu is divided into burgers, snacks and bigger sharing plates and changes according the season. Expect some lesser-known regional ingredients of Russian origin. The menu is a healthy and nourishing balance between new, exciting, biodynamic and classic burger courses. There are also beers, wines and non-alcoholic house-made lemonades on offer.
Pub Lo Picasso

This contemporary Spanish gastropub is located right in the historical district of Moscow, near Kitay-Gorod. The interior is very extravagant with dark floors and walls. The menu options are really tasty. Everything is cooked in the wood oven and served with a bottle of good wine and sparkling water. The wine list is a collaboration of Spanish and local wines. We highly recommend to book in advance, it’s always full.
Restaurant, Seafood, Russian, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free
‘Your favourite fish restaurant.’ – that’s what the proprietors say about their restaurant. This is a contemporary fish and seafood startup dining institution. The chef de cuisine uses only top-quality ingredients delivered to the restaurant daily. Offering a vast choice of carpaccio, tuna, salmon and many more seafood options, it’s that kind of meal that you want to linger for hours over. Do yourself a favour, book a table and come for a dinner when you’re in Russia for the World Cup
Cafe, Russian, Coffee, Tea , $$$
This is a contemporary burger bar and cafe. Located in the central district of Moscow but it is sometimes its tricky to find if you’re a visitor. They don’t accept credit and debit cards, so be ready with cash. As well as the classic beef burgers, there are also fish, chicken and veggie options, a vast choice of soups and salads and pumpkin courses are on offer starting from October. Delicious!
