The crus­taceans fea­ture in dishes like fluffy crab and sea­weed “baba” or play­ful crab “chur­ros,” and the 900-la­bel wine list con­tains ex­cel­lent Rus­sian se­lec­tions. 19–21 Nikol­skaya; winecrab.ru

DANILOVSKY MAR­KET Among its many stalls, try the baked goods from Ba­ton bak­ery, homey Ar­me­nian stuffed veg­gies from Dol­mas­ter, and dusky smoked Rus­sian fish and beef from Schepka smoke­house. 74 Myt­naya; dan­ri­nok.ru

CHESTNAYA KUHNYA Run by an avid hunter and pal of local farm­ers and fish­er­men, this laid-back res­tau­rant with an open kitchen and a wood­burn­ing oven serves Rus­sian game (boar pat­ties, veni­son tartare) and pies filled with bur­bot liv­ers (Slavic foie gras of yore). 10 Sadovay­ach­ernogryazskaya; chest­nayakuh­nya.ru

LAVKALAVKA This res­tau­rant’s servers will namecheck the farm­ers who pro­duce the brisket, lard, and sour cream for the borscht, and en­thuse about the rye pasta with rein­deer, which tastes at once ar­chaic and zeit­geisty. 21/1 Petro­vka; restoran. lavkalavka.com
