Your guide to the best restaurants and hotels from around the world
26/5 Tverskoi Bulvar,
The Turandot Restaurant is an establishment beyond the scope of definition “restaurant”, it’s a true luxury palace, all the interiors of which are hand-made. Tinsel, antiques, the majestic chandelier of Malaysian crystal with unique lightning, acting fireplaces, tapestries – and everything is genuine! The detailed interior took 6 years of constant planning with two workshops of wood-carvers, artists, sculptors working at them without a break. Under a huge tree of bronze there’s a turning podium where an orchestra can play gentle background music. Above it all there’s a mechanical peacock able to whirl and to flop, a grotesque hi-tech copy of the Hermitage statue in St. Petersburg. The Asian themed menu was created by Hakkasan and Wagamama’s Alan Yau, the only chef awarded two Michelin stars for the Asian cuisine. He offers a wide range of Chinese and Japanese dishes including gentle ostrich fillet in bean sauce, Meru fish fillet with a sour-sweet sauce, Pekinese duck with beluga caviar and mango and crab salad. All the dishes are so excellent that gourmands are at a constant loss as to what to go for. Pay particular attention to the dessert menu Ice-cream and sorbets are from the renowned Cafe Pushkin, while the rest of the deserts are all Yau’s creations; roll of chocolate-cigarette pastry with chocolate and pistachio creme brulee with vanilla “Bourbon” and hot lemon gratin with wild strawberry. A dining room truly fit for a Romanov.
