- Cuisines: Eastern European, Local Traditional
- In the very heart of Moscow you can taste dishes supposedly enjoyed by Russian emperors and nobility of bygone centuries. Together with the History Museum in which the restaurant is located, the restaurant conducts a program of 'historical dinners', which are supposedly detailed replicas of the menus, toasts and etiquette employed in the past by members of the Russian court. This is a live encounter with Russian history. Historical dinners are served in the museum's luxurious entrance hall. The interior is designed in the ancient Russian tradition of white stone compartments. Those who prefer a more democratic style may choose the lower hall, which has a contemporary European design. There, they play live background jazz every evening. Most of the dishes are fairly lavish affairs, since they were originally cooked at times when Russian aristocrats could afford to use a lot of cooks and kitchen hands. There are special dishes named after the people who enjoyed the very same meals. One is Bagrationi veal soup that was created by the cook of famous Russian military leader Prince Bagration. There are traditional Russian fish dishes: one particularly fine example is salmon cooked with truffles, served with a piquant sauce with crayfish and sweet wine.
