This beer restaurant is another contribution from my elder brother to our project. I am so proud of him :). By the way, after his recommendation, this spot is now deeply appreciated by my entire family, despite our taste differences.
Grad Petrov can be translated as “The city of Peter” which makes the reference to Peter the Creator, the founder of the city, and to the poet Alexander Pushkin, the equally important and well-known person for the city, who invented this collocation. Being located in the Mendeleevskaya line, the historic heart of the city, this beer spot absorbs the best from St. Petersburg’s spirit.
The cuisine has German influences. My brother would definitely insist on trying local beer that the owners brew themselves. I support this recommendation, but also suggest you try some food. For instance, a typical Russian dish ‘kholodetz‘, which is jellied meat served with mustard and horseradish sauce. The combination is pretty piquant and you are basically supposed to cry. Traditionally, kholodetz is a vodka appetizer, but I don’t like vodka :).
Grad Petrov is a pretty popular place, particularly during the evening. Be careful when planning your visit.
