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!
For me, a pot of fresh sea buckthorn and ginger tea, with a serving of delicious honey

Naturally we needed some vodka to pair with the pickles and caviar
