Appetizers like citron caviar, smoked salmon, and crème fraiche are light and delicious. Signature entrees include a pan-seared halibut in roasted beef vinaigrette and risotto covered in mushroom basil oil and the hazelnut-crusted Australian rack of lamb. The drinks at Red Square are almost as delicious as the food, if not more. Try the Cuban Missile Crisis. It’s a mix of vodka, rum, sugar-cane, and lime juice; sort of a Russian take on a mojitos. There are also vodka tasting menus available.
For the complete Russian experience, you can purchase a bottle of vodka (starting at $250) and gain entrance to the Vodka freezer where you will be given a table to enjoy your vodka. However, the “freezer” isn’t just a trendy name. You’re actually sitting in a freezer, but you’re given traditional Russian fur-coats and hats to keep warm. You may feel a bit silly, but you are sure to find several other trendsetters in the freezer who are also there for the experience. It’s really “cool,” to say the least.
