I was sceptical to go to the restaurant with my boyfriend as in some places they tend to speculate on people's feelings of nostalgia towards Soviet times. It is probably the same phenomenon as "nostalgia" in Germany -- goods and services related to that time tend to be overpriced. But the renovated C.D.L. has turned out to cast away the scepticism. There is still the chandelier that Stalin presented to Gorky. The menu contains both soviet cuisine (immaculately cooked) and some new dishes (like burgers).
