We had an excellent meal at Noah's Ark, which is located close to the Kitay-Gorod Metro stop. (The name of the restaurant on the outside is written in Cyrillic.) The interior of the restaurant is beautiful, but we chose to sit outside because the weather was unbelievably warm. We had homemade breads, baba ghanoush, a variety of cheeses and fresh vegetables to start. We ordered a red wine, the least expensive at $70/bottle, which was pleasant by CA standards. We ate the house special of a variety of grilled meats that were the best we tasted in our 14-day trip in Russia. We closed the meal with coffees and a tray of dried fruit. The bill for four was about $300. The service was excellent, but be prepared, very little English is spoken. Luckily, however, we were given a menu in English from which to order.
The restaurant is easy to find as long as you exit the metro on the southeast corner. (We were barely able to sort through the Cyrillic and so it took us a long time to find the restaurant, but others might not find this so difficult.) We also were the only ones who had walked as cars and drivers were parked next to the restaurant waiting for their riders.
