Mirko Dzago - Cheese Restaurant, 16 Sadovaya-Samotechnaya str., Moscow

If you are wondering what is the most popular Italian restaurant in Moscow, there is only one answer - “Syr” (The Cheese). Since its opening in 2001, it is always full of guests whose interest and love of this place don't wither for a single day.

The secret of such an overwhelming popularity is very simple. The irreplaceable chef Mirko Dzago has managed to create a very homey atmosphere that makes all the guests feel like they come to visit their good old Italian friend.

Mirko spent his childhood in a small Italian city of Aosta. At the age of 16 he started working in a local restaurant "Piemonte" as a... dishwasher. Gradually he began to learn the ropes of the culinary art. Then he continued his training abroad and worked in some of the greatest restaurants in Switzerland, Spain and Italy, before he finally moved to Russia. Now Mirko is perhaps the most famous chef in Moscow - he features on numerous culinary TV programs and gives interviews to renowned culinary magazines. And the most beloved one. Come to The Cheese to learn it at first hand.

Signature: Cheese, cheese and wine. Mirko and his sommeliers carefully selected the best wines from Italy, France and Spain, so you could enjoy the most gourmet variations of a traditional cheese and wine combination.


Vladimir Mukhin - White Rabbit Restaurant, 3 Smolenskaya square, Moscow

Ranked 71st out of 100 best world's restaurants according to the authoritative British magazine The Restaurants, the "White Rabbit" is a sophisticated Moscow restaurant specializing in the Russian cuisine. But don't expect to find anything traditional there. Even such an iconic dish as borsch is prepared by its open-minded chef Vladimir Mukhin in a new daring way with fried crucians, baked beans and turnip crisps. Take your pick from the restaurant's imaginative menu and enjoy your meal while overlooking a bird's eye panorama of the city.

Vladimir is a fifth-generation cook. He started his career at 12 at his father's restaurant. Then were the years of internship in prestige restaurants in Russia, France, Spain and Japan, the titles of the youngest chef in the Russian Guild of Chefs and the best youngest chef in Russia, a culinary tour in France, and the opening of his own restaurants. Experts admit that Vladimir has his unique gastronomic pattern. He masterfully combines the profound knowledge of Russian cuisine with modern technologies of food processing and is happy to introduce you a new taste of Russia.
