A food mall in a former tram depot




10:00 — 23:00


1000 — 1500

Opened in 2019 on the premises of the former Miussky Tram Depot on Lesnaya Street, the concept of this gigantic temple of gastronomy with seating for more than 1,500 brings to mind Danilovsky Market and certain other success stories of the gastro revolution. The format combines a great diversity of cuisine d'auteur restaurants with organic food shops and stalls with farm-fresh produce. The space is split into three areas: tables take up the large space on the left, outlets selling meat, fish, sweets, and vegetables are located in the middle, and numerous small cafés are found on the right.

Overall, Depot has 75 restaurants and 140 shops and serves dozens of different national cuisines: everything of note from Latin American to Southeast Asian. Some of the food mall's highlights are Creamery by the renowned restaurateur Arkady Novikov, Boiler Room by the creators of Noor Bar on Tverskaya Street, and Alexander Rappoport's restaurant KrabyKutaby.

What sets Depot apart from other food mall projects is the high level of comfort its visitors enjoy: this comfort was built into the design. The beverages are served in real glasses here instead of plastic, the food is served on ceramic plates, and the restaurant space has an overall concept involving much attention to detail (Depot even has a coat check—something few other gastro markets can boast).
