Thanks to bare luck and Foursquare we have found the nest or Dodo bird in Moscow. The place is equally good for a family dinner and girls night out. The high chair for children is designed the way it fits very conveniently in your table so your toddler does not feel lonely and can grab most of the stuff from the table. Ginger spiced meatballs and rabbit ragout were above the average. I would expect the rest of their stuff to be equally good, most likely because of the high quality ingredients. Try and let me know.
The wine list is not too varied so we decided to make a safe bet and pleased ourselves with a bottle of Simonsig’s Chardonnay followed by two helpings of Shiraz from the same winery. “Confusticate and bebother these dwarves!”, I still don’t understand why exactly all the red wine by glass in Moscow should be 5-6 degrees above an acceptable temperature. I assume it is something to do with an absolute and utter greed. Poor restaurant owners (exception being Grand Cru, Aromi la Bottega, Ragout, Dissident and some outrageously expensive places) can afford only wine cabinet per venue. All open red wine bottles are doomed to sit and sweat on a shelf suffering what they call Room Temperature. Damn dwarves.
But we forgive them all after the marvelous apple tarte tatin with Calvados ice cream and chocolate donuts. Will be back soon to get more of these.
