Description: " CHRISTIAN ": RESTAURANT FOR FRIENDS. Christian Lorenzini opened his nominative restaurant. He dreamed about it from a young age, since he was working in his father's restaurant in Tuscany and wished for independence and freedom. " Christian " is very similar to its owner. It's an informal venue with an open kitchen, an open mind and unbending atmosphere «for friends». Restaurant that has the frankly traditional taste of native Tuscany, with the “author's” kitchen created from the oldest home recipes of several generations of Lorenzini family, presented in a fun creative way!The address of the restaurant is quite impressive. " Christian " is located on the first floor of the building adjacent to the left wing of the hotel "Ukraine". Monumental architecture of the famous skyscraper effectively contrasts with the interior and atmosphere of " Christian." Crossing the threshold, you will find yourself in another country –a cozy, lovely, warm, but also ironic.Even the most important guest will have to smile, ease the knot on his neck and feel among his friends. The menu changes every week. Everyone can leave his or her feedback on it. After all, it is written on the board that is easy to wash. In the paper menu you can also cross out and write down your own dishes. "In Christian I cook my family’s and friend’s favorite dishes! Baked artichoke according to my grandmother's recipe, avocado cake is almost like my mother’s, exploded tartar or veal on the bone coated in herbs from Tuscany, and cottage-cheese cakes for breakfast according to the recipe of my second half.The menu is small, but we're going to keep changing it and add some new items. Our guests can order their favorite dishes that are not on the menu, for example, a goat or a goose according to their family’s recipe; although they will need to let us know in advance so I personally can go to the market and choose the best products.I want every guest to become a friend and stand with me at our open kitchen to cook his own dishes.I look forward to all the guests. "Christian Lorenzini

Unfortunately this rather pleasantly fitted out new restaurant in Moscow has awful service.

I was part of a group of 8 and it took two hours for the waitress to tell me that she had forgotten to put in my order of a roast chicken and I would have to wait at least another 20 minutes.

I said ok and waited - when 20 minutes were up I went to the head waiter and complained. He said he knew about the problem but that the food would be ready soon.

I waited a bit more then cancelled the order.

10 minutes later the waitress brought the food.

We also found various additional items on the bill which we had not ordered.

I'm very sorry for what's happened that day. I can confirm that at the start not all our waiters was professional like we wish, but now, after 2 months, I can say that we are goong in right way, to satisfy all our friends )
With respect,
