Traktir Pozharskogo is a long way away from Moscow’s center, but it is worth visiting!
I adore this restaurant called a la Russe “traktir”. It was a well-known guest house established by coachman Pozharsky and turned into a hotel with traktir in it by the end of the XVIII century in Tver’.
I travel back a couple of centuries when I’m in this place. To the nineteenth epoch with lairds. The restaurant is decorated according to the traditions of the XIXth century. Waiters are dressed in folk white-red costumes and wooden tables are covered with white tablecloths. There are gypsy songs in the air and a generous menu. Everything from the menu is just the pitch of perfection. Real traditional, real Russian. Starting with the speciality – kotleta Pozharskogo (BTW it is served in a pan with a wooden magnet souvenir) and finished with lobster cream soup.
Be ready to fall apart at the true taste without tricks, which conquers your senses from the first bite or swallow. And do not be stingy! Otherwise you’ll miss the joy of Russian natural historical delicacies.
