Keep going and you wind up in a stand-up-and-eat restaurant.

It's a beautiful room and the food was delicious!
Shelly and I both raved over their excellent cooking.
I had a soy stroganoff that was great.
Food is mainly Indian, but with many eclectic choices.
Highly recommended. It's about a mile from Red Square,
you could even walk.
Also, Uncle Pasha's Dacha, a vegetarian oasis between Moscow & St. Petersburg. In addition to perhaps one of the best vegetarian menues available in Russia, this small retreat offers horse riding, boating, exploration of caves and ruins and, in the low season especially, ample opportunities to relax and do nothing with minimal fuss and expense.
