Another suggestion that might be interesting for tourists: "Dymov N1" (http://eng.novikovgroup.ru/restaurants/dymov/) features terrific view on Kremlin. The food is edible, though nothing to write home about. The only branch with the view is the one on 34, Sofiyskaya naberegnaya. Andrey
Re: restaurants. Those owned by Arkadiy Novikov are generally quite good, but for the price.

I'm under impression that given how little bespoke shirtmakers left in England, all of them are overloaded with demand. Andrey
