Restaurant, Italian, $$$
One of the flagship restaurants in the Petrogradsky District run by famous Russian chef Adam Mnatskanov. The concept of the restaurant is fairly simple: traditional, authentic Italian food. The pasta, pizzas and sauces are all made from scratch onsite, using ingredients sourced in Italy. Nothing out of the ordinary but all prepared to the highest standard.
Go to Health and Suki Sushi
Restaurant, Japanese, Vegetarian, European, Asian, $$$
One does not go without the other because both restaurants are located in the same place. Their concepts, however, are not as identical: Go to Health focuses mainly on cooking popular European and Asian dishes without using meat. Basically all sorts of vegetarian treats. Suki, on the other hand, is a sushi bar. The sushi is not traditional though, there are some twists and perks that are partially experimental and partially a shift toward using local ingredients, rather than foreign goods.
Restaurant, Russian, $$$
Mari Vanna has already earned its name around the world not only for its food but also for the unique interiors that are thought through down to the last detail. Waitresses dressed in Soviet costumes serve borscht out of a big soup pot. It really doesn’t get more Russian than this. Expect a calm atmosphere and a feeling of a home away from home.
Restaurant, Gastropub, Italian, $$$
A rooftop getaway that comes to life during the summer months. It is the perfect place to escape the city without leaving the city. The menu here is mainly Italian with lots of drinks to choose from for the after party. On a weekend stop-by for the live DJ music, settle into one of their hammocks and simply drift away.
Parusa na Kryshe
Bar, Restaurant, European, $$$
Good food and a good view – a combination that you simply cannot beat. A stylish and romantic restaurant that is perfect for a first date or just for a dinner for two. It’s also nice to spend some late nights here – signature cocktails will get you into the mood to unwind and enjoy the view.
Restaurant, Russian, $$$
Ever wondered what people ate during the Soviet times? This is the place to find out. Not only does this restaurant serve traditional Russian dishes, it also features dishes that were specific to the 20th century. Staples that were found on many Russian dinner tables at the time. Don’t be shy to experiment. Some dishes may sound unusual but in fact are quite delicious
Bar, Restaurant, European, Japanese, Asian, $$$
Yet another rooftop restaurant in the district, but that means there is something to see from up there. Petrogradskaya looks out onto some of the most iconic landmarks of St Petersburg. The interior preserves a fashionable vibe, and the dishes served tend to be experiments. Don’t miss out on the signature cocktails too.
