Iconic ground floor restaurant in the National Hotel looking over Red Square, serving excellent Russian cuisine. Operates 24/7 but very difficult to get a table at short notice. Great menu, reasonable prices. Do not mention its your birthday since all the waitresses will sing to you and light fireworks.
