Any journey begins with planning. We choose a guide, museums and of course places to eat. Food is very important because through traditional dishes we can join the culture of the country. Today I will tell you about the best gourmet restaurants in St. Petersburg.
Cococo! Do you hear the rooster? The name of the restaurant itself sends us to the village side. This is a restaurant of real Russian cuisine, but even locals will be surprised by the classic dishes. Just look at the dessert "mother's favorite flower." Here is everything that a visitor should try, for example, black caviar, crab under a fur coat, soup "shchi" (like a borsch but without a beetroot) and dumplings with a rabbit. All products are local, and the menu depends on the season. Oh! And by the way the restaurant is mentioned in Forbes magazine as one of "The 10 Coolest Places to Eat in 2019".
Restaurant Palkin. Any St Petersburg guide knows about Palkin a lot as it's history and reputation evolved over the centuries. This place I recommend you to visit in the evening after St Petersburg tours. Illumination of buildings is turned on, the shadows smooth out the disadvantages of a noisy metropolis. Now you are in the club restaurant, operating since 1871. One of the regular visitors was Tchaikovsky, a famous Russian composer. What to try? I especially advise you taste borscht, goose pie and a special beef sroganoff.
Europe restaurant in Belmond Grand Hotel Europe. Well, completing one of the St. Petersburg guided tours you are finally convinced "This is not Russia, this is Europe." Where to try the most delicious food? Of course in the Grand Hotel Europe! In addition to the main restaurant where you have to go to enjoy the interiors, which Anna Pavlova loved so much, you definitely can go to the Caviar bar. Art Nouveau, traditional Russian cuisine, impeccable service and history are the main reasons to visit this place. Be sure to try the dessert named after the famous Russian ballerina (Pavlova) or relax on the Sunday brunch having pancakes with red caviar.
