If you enjoy such "bourgeois" amusements as an evening in a cozy restaurant with irreproachable service and multifarious menu, welcome to the Burgui Restaurant located on Pochtamsky Street. Here you will find all those foods and drinks that were blamed in the USSR, including famous hazel-hens with pineapples.
The hall of the restaurant is relatively small, but cozy. It reminds of a nicely decorated reception-room in a private mansion. The design of the hall is an unusual combination of different epochs' styles - from exquisite Silver Age to reckless NEP (New Economic Policy) time. The collage on one of the restaurant hall walls is especially noteworthy: it represents the works of the world famous artists of different epochs, styles and artistic schools, from Vermeer to Manet.
The menu of the Burgui Restaurant is as diverse as its interiors. It features the best dishes of the exquisite French cuisine, the delicacies of hospitable Russian cuisine and various dishes of European cuisine. Friday is a fish day in the restaurant. On Fridays the guests are offered fresh oysters delivered from France and red tunny-fish. The wine carte of the Burgui Restaurant presents all the leading wine-making regions of the world.
On Thursdays in the restaurant the ensemble of Russian romances and Gypsy songs "The Fortes" gives performances. On Wednesdays and Fridays the guests are entertained by jazz musicians, and on Saturdays the ballroom pianist gives his concerts.
