French cuisine in a luxurious interior

паризьен -1.jpg

Parisienne is located in Tsarski Pavilion on Leningradsky Avenue. This mansion, built in pseudo-Russian-style for the beginning of the 15th All-Russian Exhibition of Industry and Crafts in 1882, is notable for its complex composition. It seems to consist of several different buildings, well trimmed and decorated with tiles making unique drawings.

In 1896, the pavilion hosted a dinner party to honor the coronation of Nicholas II. The building is home to the former chambers of the emperor and empress, a study, a dining room, and a living room, and it is richly decorated with wood carvings and stucco moldings based on oriental and ancient Russian motifs. The building is unique, as it is the only one from the grand exhibition complex that still remains.

Parisienne offers its guests classic French cuisine, a favorite of the Romanov family: fish and meat tartare, salad with octopus, oysters, onion soup, and calf's liver Lyonnaise. The wine list consists of wines from France, Italy, Argentina, Chili, and California.

Visitors can enjoy the recreated atmosphere of the place: seven-meter ceilings, huge windows and moldings in their original appearance, mirrored fireplaces restored based on the architects’ sketches, and the snow-white tablecloths and dishes that add charm to the establishment. In the summer, special attention should be paid to the green veranda with its sofas and armchairs, decorated with a high arch and bordered by centuries-old chestnut trees.
