Aist restaurant is one of the oldest upscale venues on our Moscow dining recommendations list.
This place is managed by the famous Novikov Group and includes three levels. The first one has a lounge area with comfortable couches. On weekend evenings they invite DJs that spin house music there creating pre-party atmosphere. You won’t hear any music on the second floor that has an open kitchen and more focused on the food. There is a large summer verandah on top of the restaurant building verlooking the streets of old Moscow. This beutiful summer verandah is the main reason to come here in summer.
Aist on the Moscow Restaurants Scene
Aist has been on the Moscow restaurants scene for a long time now. It remembers those long gone Moscow glamour days when people came here to start their Friday evenings before heading to the Dyagilev and First night clubs. These days are over. There are much more places to have a good meal in Moscow these days. But it’s still good to visit Aist from time to time.
