Sobranie translates as ‘gathering’, and this glass-walled restaurant near the Victoria Palace shopping mall oozes convivial glasnost with regular karaoke nights, plus live music and dancing every Friday and Saturday. Meanwhile, the kitchen takes diners ‘back to the USSR’ with a mishmash of dishes from old Russia, the Caucasus, France and beyond – Baltic herrings with boiled potatoes, salad mimosa, borscht, stuffed cabbage rolls and blinis with caviar sit alongside tiger prawns in garlic butter, Hungarian goulash and Scotch salmon fillet with pomegranate sauce, not forgetting that international stalwart chicken Kiev. To finish, try classic honey and walnut cake or parcels of pancakes filled with cottage cheese. Shots of devastating flavoured vodka, black (or white) Russian cocktails, beers and glasses of Georgian wine are de rigueur for the party crowd.
