Rusian Crayfish, Rusian Salad

To a Russian, the crayfish is a summertime staple as crucial to the national cuisine as caviar, and much more accessible.

If you're a fan, make it a point to visit this restaurant, since it's a glimpse of what for many Russian men is the ultimate dining experience.

The bright red crustaceans are the main draw, whether boiled in beer, spiced, or doused in cream sauce. Grilled fish is also on offer, as well as seafood-based appetizers and salads. The only appropriate beverage for a crayfish lunch is Russian beer.
