The beautiful view of Moscow’s historic centre, relaxed ambience and elaborately prepared food are the reasons why PESHI is a popular venue for high-profile events such as Vogue Fashion’s Night Out. The restaurant boasts an incredibly wide selection of fish – Japanese mackerel, itoyori, kinmendai, and rare types of shellfish such as taigarai – delivered from the Mediterranean, Sri-Lanka, Japan, New Zealand and Russia’s Far East twice a week. Although you can have any fish on the menu prepared any way you want, you simply cannot leave without trying the best ceviche in Moscow.
