Aina

A new project from Philipp Golubev who opened it at the very beginning of Ostozhenka Street. This restaurant is a must-visit regardless of your interest of the local cuisine, the overarching concept, interior decoration, or what not. The reason? Aina is the duo of chef Gleb Gaiger and bartender Arthur Shusteriovas (who is also the project’s partner). Together, they populated the restaurant’s menu with the tastes, combinations, and products of the Russian regions. This pair has already worked together – and their mutual passion for pairing dishes and drinks is a powerful force that is hopefully will stay with them for a long time.
