The Moskovskaya Kukhmisterskaya restaurant represents the Russian cuisine of the mid- and late 19 century. The so called Kukhmisterskaya restaurants emerged in Moscow almost two centuries ago. They were most popular among the middle class representatives, or the bourgeois. The word 'Küchenmeister' came from German and referred to the restaurants' owners, the predecessors of the modern restaurateurs. Eventually, due to historical events, the bourgeois traditions were forgotten. The name of the class survived the time only as a metaphor.
While decorating the Moskovskaya Kukhmisterskaya restaurant, the founders kept away from all the clichés of a traditional Russian lifestyle. No bears, balalaikas and bast shoes!

In September 2016, her interior design for the Moskovskaya Kukhmisterskaya restaurant received an International Property Award, one of the most prestigious international awards in residential and commercial real estate.
