Traditional Russian (or Georgian cuisine or anything else regional of note) in MOSCOW

Looking for suggestions for restaurants (cheap or expensive) with a focus on traditional or regional Russian food, whether that means Russian food in general, or some particular part of the country that has noteworthy culinary tradition where a restaurant in itself might try to showcase it.

  1. When I lived there (through 2002), there was this amazing Georgian restaurant called Guriya (Address: 7/3 Komsomolsky Per., Metro: Frunzenskaya, Phone: 246 0378). It was inexpensive and the actual place was somewhat hard to find (good guide books helped), but once you got there, you could eat the most amazing khachipuri! The food was excellent and in 2002, if I remember correctly, they renovated the place- a sign of good business. I've found a few reviews by searching online...

    I don't know if it's still good, but at the time, it was spectacular! If I were in Moscow I'd give it a try.

      Guria was our favourite place way back in 1991/2 when we were students in Moscow. There wasn't a whole lot of food available in the shops, and Guria did by far the best food in the whole city. I still remember the khachipuri and the aubergine dish they did. Happy days!

        Go to Knyaz Bagration on Plushchikha. Really nice. Good Georgian vines too and close to Arbat.
