Zhirok is the first big restaurant project in the building of the renovated Usachevsky market. Despite the abundance of unusual street food, the market has not had a restaurant of such scale before. The author of the concept is one of the most well-known Moscow restaurateurs, Ilya Tyutenkov. This is his first gastronomic project outside the center of Moscow. The interior was designed by Natalia Belonogova (Severyane, Ugolyok, She): large windows, carbon boards instead of walls, dark wooden tables and chairs, candles, and a huge metal chandelier. Art objects by young Moscow artists are featured on the walls and the tables are decorated with fresh flowers. A huge stove of unusual bright-red color is standing in the center of the room.
The restaurant's menu fits on 1.5 pages and includes dishes for every day in the chef's original interpretation. Grilled salmon with asparagus and broccoli, duck breast with spiced pumpkin, and the restaurant's hit—pork belly with plum—are some of the main dishes. A large selection of hot and cold appetizers is the cherry on top. Zhirok also offers vegetarian and vegan dishes and has almost no fatty foods (despite the name of the restaurant, which stands for "fat").
