Mari Vanna

Mari Vanna presents yet another kind of Ginza Project concept. It is named after a mysterious fictional character, Maria Ivanovna, who has laid table with fine chine and white linen table cloth for her guests, yet doesn't show up herself. In fact, no one has ever seen her! Without even being present, she warmly receives her guests and treats them with traditional Russian fare - solyanka, rassolnik and shchi (cabbage soup), pickled vegetables, pelmeni and vareniki.
It takes some efforts, however, to get there. It's like a private dining club with only a selected circle of people having access, namely, keys of Maria Ivanovna's apartment, and you have to get in touch with one of them. Following the key-holder through labyrinths of stairways and passages, you can finally immerse yourself into its specific atmosphere, conjured up by all sorts of relicts and cultural artifacts. Among numerous other things and trinkets, you'll notice novels of celebrated Russian classics, matroskas, cheburashka - a popular Russian cartoon character and, of course, an iconic Russian brown bear.
