This restaurant with exquisite interior décor and a very sizable menu occupies the fifth floor of the TSUM, the department store in the heart of downtown Moscow. There are two ways to reach the restaurant: either use the direct entrance from Petrovka or the main store entrance (in which case you have to walk up). Moscow receives yet another landmark every summer season when the restaurant opens its veranda.
Buro owes its interior design to Natalia Belonogova, concept designer for Severyane, Pinch, and Gorynych. The place has floor-to-ceiling windows and plenty of mirrors. The dominant color of the walls and furnishings is white. The tiled ceiling is decorated with creeper plants. The restaurant receives plenty of natural and artificial light. Its creative multi-module layout divides the space into numerous secluded areas.
Created by brand chef Dmitry Zotov, the menu plays on contrasts: seasonal produce and minimalist specialties clash with sumptuous desserts and recherché seafood variations. There is a large salads and soups section (the highlights here are tom yum and borscht with smoked prunes), a standalone menu for hot and cold starters, and a bread basket offering bread selections baked with unusual ingredients. Arguably, the highlights of the entrées section are crab cake with guacamole, barbecue duck breast, and spaghetti & crab.
