After a nice concert went across the street to this place. Mechta means wish in Russian. The place has a veranda as well as an indoor dining area. You can eat, drink, dance, and hookah. I had the fettuccine pasta it was very filling but not enough mushrooms. For dessert I had the Mielle fueille, sorry for the spelling error. It was a puff pastry. We sat on the veranda which was very stylish and nice. I had rose wine. Nice place to go with friends. Make sure to sit where there is a lounge/sofa. They also give blankets if it's cold.

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.

This restaurant has a trendy feel although funnily the television that was on was playing Sesame Street. Some of the items from the menu were disappointingly not available although the food that we ordered - the borscht, crab and avocado salad, the goulash and sole was not bad. Would consider repeating it more because of the convenient location opposite the Swissotel.
