Fartouk – Summer mood and good food

Dear All,

We are going on through the Bar Street, namely¬†Rubinshtyeina street. The next stop has a simple name, laconic decor and nice food. Let’s start with the name. Fartouk means apron in Russian. Why not? :). The design reminds me a bit of Nordic summer houses, the ones with heavy wooden furniture, white linen tablecloths and crocks.¬†

Smoking is not allowed inside, while socialising is more than welcomed. That’s probably why in the center of this cafe there is a big long table. Sitting there makes people feel closer to each other as much as the food does. Owners believe that Fartouk is first of all a food spot. The concept seems to be the following – serving unsophisticated, but tasty stuff, that even looks like homemade food, but adding the professional skills of a cooking team.¬†

For me Fartouk is 99% a summer place. I feel that this spot has some form of joy of life and teen spirit – all things that summertime gives us.
