published their rating of the 25 best Russian restaurants in 2018. SAVVA proudly holds the 11th place, the very center of the list. It's also pleasing for us to know that GQ singled out our restaurant in the rather complicated Hotel Restaurants category. GQ's experts seemed to be charmed by the smile of our brand-chef Andrei Shmakov, as well as by his mastery. His smile is perfect – just like his cuisine. And it's not only all about the charm: our team is incredibly dedicated to perfecting their art, spend hours upon hours fighting for the best quality of their work and searching for new inspiration in the hallowed traditions of Russian cuisine.
Our restaurant proudly bears the name of the legendary innovator and businessman Savva Mamontov. Аnd for good reason. Starting July 23 SAVVA will close for renovation. We're filled with new, global plans, grandiose hopes for the future, a tonn of ideas. We are not saying farewell... merely waiting for our reunion with all of you in October! We’ll have a brand new Fall Menu waiting. Stay tuned and be the first to see the renewed SAVVA.
Yours, Andrei Shmakov.

Okroshka is a traditional Russian dish, a cold summer soup with kvas or buttermilk. At SAVVA we cook okroshka with beef tongue. Our brand-chef Andrei Shmakov shares his recipe at @afishadaily
For those that don’t read Russian, we’ve made a translation. Try to cook it yourself or order a ready, perfect version from SAVVA! ⠀
Ingredients for 1 portion: ⠀
• Potatoes – 20 gr. ⠀
• Radish – 20 gr. ⠀
• Cucumber – 20 gr. ⠀
• Egg whites – 25 gr. ⠀
• Egg yolk – 10 gr. ⠀
• Beef tongue – 30 gr. ⠀
• Green onions – 4 gr. ⠀
• Sour cream – 30 gr. ⠀
• For the dressing use kvas or buttermilk – 150 ml. ⠀
For our version of the okroshka summer soup, you’ll need to boil potatoes, peal the radish and cucumber. Grate all of the vegetables along with the egg. Cut the beef tongue into strips. You can serve the soup with either kvas or buttermilk. For the kvas dressing, mix kvas with mustard, horseradish and egg yolk, at give it time to blend. For the kefir dressing mix 2,5% kefir with garlic and freshly cut greens.
Place all of the ingredients in the plate. Add the dressing right before serving. Serve with sour cream.

SAVVA is located in the Metropol Hotel, one of the finest monuments of the Art Nouveau movement. It is undoubtebly one of Moscow's most beautiful landmarks. Its construction began in 1899 at the initiative of the legendary businessman and art patron Savva Mamontov. It was Mamontov's dream for this hotel to become an exhibition space and a pathway to immortality for the new generation of Russian artists. The facades are decorated with innumerable scultural frisos and panels, the most famous being the panel 'La Princesse Lointaine' by Mikhail Vrubel. A poetic depiction of the Crusading poet Geoffrey Rudel and the love of his life - Melisende of Tripoli, it occupies the Hotel's central facade. If your planning on taking pictures, the best place for that is on the corner of Moscow Theatre Square.
