Pivbar Kamchatka

The Kamchatka beer bar is the latest hot spot to opened by legendary restaurateur Arkady Novikov, founder of such well-known establishments as the Vogue Café, Bon, Bolshoi restaurant and GQ bar. Currently the Kamchatka is most talked-about eatery in the city, and for good reason. First of all, nobody had been expecting anything of this sort from Novikov. Secondly, the Kamchatka is an affordable place with a "dash of spice", once again confirming that the most ingenious things are often surprisingly simple. Here you will find post-Soviet nostalgia (as reflected in the simple interior, service and menu) amid a classical cafeteria atmosphere, but with style, humour and pleasantly low prices. The Kamchatka's location right next to the glamorous Vogue Café, Bolshoi Theatre and TSUM central department store makes the contrast seem all the more stark. Among the unpretentious fare on offer is beer (50 RUR for a 0.5-litre glass), sprat sandwiches, Russian potato salad, cod liver salad (70 RUR for 150 grams) and herring salad (50 RUR for100 grams). Sit at a round table with a red plastic ketchup container in the middle, eat to your heart's content and laugh at the follies of a consumer culture gone amok outside, just around the corner. Welcoming and heart-warming, in accordance with the best traditions of Russian humour. As one reviewer wrote: "back to the future or forward into the past". Rumour has it that Kamchatka is a mere prelude to Novikov's next venture, which is set to open its doors in the basement level of the same establishment.
