Caviar tasting at Café Pushkin

Café Pushkin is another restaurant recommend to me by a client from Moscow. I browsed the menu before heading to Moscow and knew we’d do the caviar tasting! We decided to go all out, trying other Russian classic dishes, as well. Such a beautiful café! If you want to treat yourself, I definitely recommend a visit to Café Pushkin!

This was one of the more difficult signs to translate – we went inside to ask if this was Café Pushkin!
