Part of Moscow's esteemed Syndicate Restaurants that includes Beefbar and Pavilion, Bistrot is an exquisite culinary experience privy to demanding billionaire and Moscow socialites usually with bodyguards and drivers in tow. The Russian sequel to the Forte dei Marmi eatery by the same, Bistrot Moscow replicates the traditional Tuscan interiors with expanded space that includes a library-style lounge, sunroom and summer terrace with quaff fountain. The main dining room is surrounded in Venetian plastering and oak-paneled walls with prominent stone fireplace and heavy drapery that seals an aristocratic undertone to one of Moscow's showiest eateries.  

The Food

A trendy Italian chef with celebrity connections orchestrates an ala carte and prix fixe menu of Italian specialties like grilled octopus on bed of potatoes, choice of carpaccios over wilted arugula and array of raw bar items that aren’t as good as at the Italian original. Main course includes selection of tradition meat-minded pasta dishes with garlic and tomato sauce variations, choice of specialty pizzas ideal for late-afternoon lunches and wide selection of traditional Italian meats from goat and lamb to beef and chicken that impress in their native flavors.

Last Word

Showy Italian eatery offers pre-club dinner scene and midweek business crowd of Moscow’s hottest social types.
