Description: " CHRISTIAN ": RESTAURANT FOR FRIENDS. Christian Lorenzini opened his nominative restaurant. He dreamed about it from a young age, since he was working in his father's restaurant in Tuscany and wished for independence and freedom. " Christian " is very similar to its owner. It's an informal venue with an open kitchen, an open mind and unbending atmosphere «for friends». Restaurant that has the frankly traditional taste of native Tuscany, with the “author's” kitchen created from the oldest home recipes of several generations of Lorenzini family, presented in a fun creative way!The address of the restaurant is quite impressive. " Christian " is located on the first floor of the building adjacent to the left wing of the hotel "Ukraine". Monumental architecture of the famous skyscraper effectively contrasts with the interior and atmosphere of " Christian." Crossing the threshold, you will find yourself in another country –a cozy, lovely, warm, but also ironic.Even the most important guest will have to smile, ease the knot on his neck and feel among his friends. The menu changes every week. Everyone can leave his or her feedback on it. After all, it is written on the board that is easy to wash. In the paper menu you can also cross out and write down your own dishes. "In Christian I cook my family’s and friend’s favorite dishes! Baked artichoke according to my grandmother's recipe, avocado cake is almost like my mother’s, exploded tartar or veal on the bone coated in herbs from Tuscany, and cottage-cheese cakes for breakfast according to the recipe of my second half.The menu is small, but we're going to keep changing it and add some new items. Our guests can order their favorite dishes that are not on the menu, for example, a goat or a goose according to their family’s recipe; although they will need to let us know in advance so I personally can go to the market and choose the best products.I want every guest to become a friend and stand with me at our open kitchen to cook his own dishes.I look forward to all the guests. "Christian Lorenzini

Went for a breakfast meeting. Setting is very friendly, service was excellent, good choice of food (the eggs benedict were excellent!) and really nice coffee!

Yesterday we had one of the most amazing experiences in a restaurant and it was at Christian. We are from Croatia and Russia, so we know both italian and russian dishes well. This restaurant combined everything on a such subtle, playful and beautiful level where food is not only tasty and impressively prepared but also well presented often hiding visual secrets to awake emotions of childhood nostalgia or happiness of celebrating life. Staff was professional and also very chill, made us feel like at home just like the entire design of the restaurant is making you feel. We met Chef who is heart and soul of this place and we soon figured out that his personality is why the food and entire atmosphere is on such an amazing professional level that kept that feeling of home. Thank you for this evening, we will come again when we return to Moscow.

The Italian chef is great! All the plates are very well cooked and presented. The staff is very friendly and professional. The restaurant has a very nice modern chic layout. I enjoyed everything, especially their special cheese cake with icing sugar: unmissable!!!
