Late for an entire spring, the terrace season can finally be called open. While the weather forecast promises noticeable heating, Afisha-Restaurants reminds you of the most beautiful rooftop terraces in Moscow, where not only the food but also the view is spectacular.
One of the most beautiful terraces of the city this year is traditionally in Turandot. The roof of Dellos Mansion on Tverskoy Avenue is transformed into a summer garden each year, decorated in the style of 18th-19th century garden architecture with pergola partitions, vintage fountains, elegant columns, marble statues and bathtubs with plants. By the way, there are many of the latter, as in a real garden: here grow roses, hydrangeas, wild grapes and oranges. By the way, it is no coincidence that the space on the roof of the palace is poetically called the champagne terrace: the Turandot wine list contains more than 80 types of champagne and sparkling wines – from premium and vintage labels to collection samples.
The Genesis O2 Lounge at the Ritz-Carlton presents a new concept every year. This time, it’s more in the spirit of the times than ever before – locals and tourists alike are encouraged to take care of themselves and practice balancing overlooking the historic city center. It is also recommended to understand Zen with the help of art: the terrace was decorated with interactive art objects created by Moscow artist Alexandra Weld Queen, which are designed to help you observe your inner struggle and think of ways to achieve harmony. You can interact with the facilities, for example, sitting, moving and trying to find your rhythm. The plants also contribute to the immersion in a serene atmosphere: honeysuckle, perennial, alpine currant, spiral, lilac and aromatic herbs. The latter, incidentally, are also used in the preparation of dishes and drinks – for example, in the balance line of non-alcoholic cocktails based on rare herbs and edible flowers.
A new pop-up restaurant has opened in the two-storey mansion of Galaktioni and Elina Tabinje in Sretenka: if last year the rooftop summer terrace was dedicated to Greek gastronomy, this time the project honors another Mediterranean country – Italy. The summer atmosphere on the coast of Sicily was conveyed as fully as possible: oranges, natural materials, light cheerful music and delicate garlands of lights that light up after sunset. All this is complemented by cocktails from the Insider bar and homemade Italian cuisine, as seen by renowned chef Régis Trigel and terrace chef Lila Nikita Gavrilov: artichokes with figs and parmesan (1450 grated), polpette with tomato sauce (790). , ravioli with ricotta and spinach (690 rubles), rigatoni cacho-e-pepe (700 rubles) and nine types of pizza developed by pizzaiolo chef Alexei Abramkin.
Regular guests of Voronezh know that in fine weather it is worth booking tables exclusively on the terrace on the roof of the four-storey Rappoport mansion. The space with a pleasant interior and bright red blankets can be seen from the picturesque view of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, the busy streets of Ostozhenka and the famous “house under the glass” of the merchant Filatov, full of many secrets and legends. It is customary to admire Moscow architecture here by tasting Aberdeen Angus steaks, baked meat (from 1290 rubles), classic Tatars (890 rubles) and toy cutlets (from 1200 rubles). From 8 to 12 you can come to the terrace for breakfast, which runs the risk of turning into lunch: the breakfast menu has more than 50 options for dishes for which it is worth postponing work.
On the roof of the Central Department Store unchanged: the most famous terrace of the Kuznetsky Most, the Buro. CHUM, this year is full of flowers, this time in lavender. To soothe the nerves with the help of violet-blue shades in the decoration, the soft melodic music, the famous cakes in the shape of a pug and the seasonal updates by the chef Vladimir Chistyakov. For example, fried artichokes with Uzbek tomato puree (1790 rubles) and tempura shrimp with spicy tomatoes and spicy mayonnaise (1250 rubles). As an accompaniment, it is recommended to order the main innovation of the bar menu, created especially for (and matching the color) of the terrace – a light highball cocktail with the dreamy name Its a novelty again.
You can catch the long-awaited rays of the sun on the veranda of the KM20 booth overlooking the Stoleshnikov Strip, Tverskaya Square, Bolshaya Dmitrovka and the bell tower of the Cosmas and Damian church. You can sit not only at the table, but also on the wide parapet with a glass of pet-nat and dishes based on the freshest local products – in spring-summer, the kitchen KM20 uses vegetables and berries grown on its own farm in the village of Kuznechkovo near Moscow. We especially recommend pizza with zucchini (1100 rubles), roasted carrots (550 rubles) and seasonal vegetable salad (700 rubles). Every Saturday from 13.00, a real gastronomic fuss reigns at KM20 – the foundation team bakes fresh donuts with raspberries and white chocolate (350 rubles) and a pie of the day (now pear).
The roof terrace of Pythagoras differs not only in scale (100 seats in the end!), But also in functionality: an open space, if necessary, will protect visitors from particularly unpredictable weather this year with the help of a folding roof and windows. In addition to practicality, the place boasts a panoramic view of old Moscow with its golden domes and busy streets, an open bar and its own kitchen, where they prepare the most delicious Greek dishes and new crab delicacies: broccoli cutlets and chili mousse (1700 rubles), phalanges (2500 rubles) and cuttlefish ink ryzo (2300 rubles). Sitting in the shade of spreading plants, it is a sin to refuse the author’s Pythagoras cocktails – Orpheus will save you from the heat and worries based on silk tincture, smoked pear and bergamot liqueur.
