White Rabbit

Located under a glass dome on the 16th floor of Smolenskiy Passage, White Rabbit is the first joint project of restaurateur Boris Zarkov and chef Vladimir Mukhin.

Beautiful, modern and daring in its own way. Here for the first time Russian cuisine sounds in unison with the latest culinary trends and Russian products rise to a height of recognized delicacies. Want borsch soup? Try theirs, with fried crucians, baked beans and turnip crisps. Every dish from White Rabbit menu is a result of a long work, gastronomical expeditions and a special respect for traditions.

In 2015, White Rabbit restaurant took the 23d place in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, an annual contest announced by an authoritative British magazine The Restaurants and international The Diners Club 50 World’s Best Restaurants Academy.

Today it is the only Russian project presented in the prestigious rating, the main gastronomic attraction of the city. Check out their mouth watering menu, to get the sense of the chef’s abilities, order the tasting menu.

CHEF: Seasonal local products, original recipes and finely-designed combinations – those are the distinctive features of a cuisine of Vladimir Mukhin, chef of White Rabbit. Following the rules of high gastronomy, Vladimir opens every season with a tasting menu, which is based on new products, ideas and combinations of flavors.

White Rabbit is beautiful in the Winter or in the summer. In the winter everyone wants to sit inside and cozy up in the big over sized chairs and in the summer everyone wants to sit outside enjoying the fresh air. Both are beautiful decorated and both have amazing views (especially when it gets dark enough to see the lights of Moscow). This is a large restaurant over two levels with an impressive atrium. The restaurant takes its decor from an Alice in Wonderland theme and the White Rabbit motif is everywhere.

A note on finding the restaurant – you enter through the Smolenskaya plaza and head to the back ‘business passage’. It’s easy to overlook the small sign to the restaurant on the shopping centre floor. The elevators are through frosted glass doors and take you up to the fifth floor and then there’s a desk for the restaurant and an express elevator going to the 16th floor.

Also I recommend parking in the garage below, but not like this…
