Modern Russian cooking
"he Moon is a family restaurant at the edge of the trendy Kalamaja district. Based onclassic Russian cuisine, itis worth visiting for excellent food and homelike atmosphere.

The menu lists some traditional Russian dishes as well as their modern interpretations. The pies are just as they have always been - fresh, fragrant, and richly stuffed. The great Russian soups - borsch, solyanka, uha - as well as dumplings and buckwheat blini hark back to the classics. The Head Chef has given his imagination looser reins with main dishes. Classics such as chicken à la Kiev, rabbit, and beefsteak are revamped with interesting sides and sauces - the chicken Kiev with kohlrabi-spinach salad and hazelnut dressing, the rabbit with carrot-spinach puree and Parmesan cream, and the entrecote with roast parsnip and tomato-aubergine salad. The drinks complement the food. The selection is broad and caters to several interests: biological, biodynamic and kosher categories are all represented, as are local small breweries and cider-makers. Non-alcoholic drinks are also available...
