11 Novoslobodskaya, Moscow, Russia
Phone: 095/956-8467 or 095/972-0511
One of the most popular Moscow restuarants, this noisy watering hole offers a satisfying Mexican menu of traditional favorites for Southwestern palates. Among the nachos, guacamole, and fajitas are several chicken dishes and a few exotic ones, such as roasted duck tacos. Pretty much any drink is served from the well-stocked bar, which makes a potent margarita. For a final flourish, flag down the roving compadre whose holster packs tequila bottles instead of six-shooters. The walls are covered in a bright Aztec motif, and the staff's mood matches the festive costumes. They have been known to break out in spontaneous dance while taking your order. AE, DC, MC, V.
Favorite Dish: ARTISTICO
5/6 Kamergersky per., Moscow, Russia
Off Tverskaya ulitsa and opposite the MKhAT Theater, Artistico is one of the perfect Moscow restaurants for a pre- or post-theater dinner. Specializing in French and Mediterranean cuisine, the restaurant comes into its own in summer with its outdoor café. Its business lunch deal is one of the best in the city center. AE, DC, MC, V.
Metro: Okhotny Ryad.
10 Bolshoi Strochyonovsky per., Moscow, Russia
Imported Thai chefs bring an authenticity to one of the few Thai Moscow restaurtants, this one long popular with politicians and expats. Unfortunately the food is sometimes the only authentic thing -- the Tom Yum Gung soup or spicy prawn soup is a must -- as the service is not always up to scratch and the decor somewhat gloomy. Keep in mind that there are four levels of hot spiciness -- four-alarmer to mild. The prices are high but the huge portions are big enough for two or three people. AE, DC, MC, V.
BELOYE SOLNTSE PUSTYNI
29/14 Neglinnaya ul., Moscow, Russia
Named after a legendary Soviet film, Beloye Solntse Pustyni (White Sun of the Desert) is a theme restaurant that specializes in delicious Uzbek food. The restaurant's sun-bleached walls instantly sweep you down to Central Asia. Inside the illusion continues: a diorama with a ship marooned in the desert, Uzbek maidens as waitresses, and intricately carved wooden doors. Make sure you try the salad bar's mouthwatering array of vegetables. The Dastarkhan, a set meal, overwhelms you with food -- unlimited access to the salad bar, numerous desserts, plov (a Central Asian rice pilaf), and a main course. Reservations essential.
