Square Meal Review of Novikov - Asian Restaurant ?

Rihanna drops by when she’s in town, there’s a takeaway menu for private jets, and owner Arkady Novikov runs more than 50 restaurants in Moscow – yet this place is about more than feeding the super-rich. True, the menu lists Wagyu, foie gras, black cod and king crab, but the chefs in the glass-walled kitchen execute the ‘oriental greatest hits’ repertoire with perfect timing, expert slicing and pin-sharp presentation. While you could fill up on miso baby chicken or spicy veal cutlets, we recommend the small plates – some tuna tartare here, a scallop dumpling there, plus soft-shell crab sushi and a sashimi salad (yellowtail and coriander, say) – or following the suggestions of the clued-up and “attentive” staff. High expenditure is a given, though lunchtime dim sum menus are a relative snip (20 dumplings for £25). There’s also a sedate Italian restaurant on site, but all the excitement is out front here in the Asian room: a slinky space of granite walls and lacquered ebony, where wooden blinds keep out prying eyes.
