French in Moscow
French cuisine has a long history in Russia dating back to the times of Catherine the Great. World renowned dishes such as Veal Orloff, Beef Stroganoff and Chicken Kiev are all a result of the Franco-Russian cuisine of the 18th and 19th centuries.
Fine dining restaurants in Moscow today build on the legacy left by past influential Russian families who used to import the finest, rarest and most creative French foods and chefs available. ‘Haute cuisine’ mixed with the knowledge of Russian foods is a match made in heaven and a combination that Moscow’s top restaurants willingly play on.
