Andrei Makhov - Café Pushkin, 26А Tverskoy Blvd, Moscow

Cafe Pushkin is one of Moscow's legends. Many people believe that it has always been there, but it was opened in 1999, in a Baroque Manson. The restaurant has a beautiful history, which started from the inspiration of Gilbert Becaud's song "Natalie," where he sings about Cafe Pushkin. After this song, many people were looking for Cafe Pushkin, but it hasn't existed yet! Later it was established by Andrei Dellos and described, 'Cafe Pushkin is a place our grandchildren will visit.' The location of Tverskoy Boulevard was chosen on purpose because the street played a significant role in the life of Russian poet Alexander Pushkin. The boulevard was a favorite place among Moscow high society, including Pushkin.
