Named after the popular Soviet-times candy, this three-floors restaurant located on a Garden ring is a flagship of an emerging chain of fancy restaurants. This is a trendy place attracting trendy crowd, which gathers there before hitting Moscow nightclubs around mindnight. While it is very busy at lunchtime, serving the bankers and lawyers from the nearby office centers, it is equally busy in the evenings, with the same patrons and/or Moscow partygoers relaxing in the evening. The food is great, I wasn't able to find a single dish which I didn't like (and I've been there MANY times). Try their poached octopus salad or crab and avocado julienne as a hot appetizer, and go for their signature ribeye (don't forget to order side dish, as it comes separately) for the main course. For desert, try their tiramisu. Breakfast is also great, they have arguably the best poached eggs with spinach in Moscow. Their waterpipes are a good value for the money, try the usual two apple mix, with minced meat leaves in the water.
