The interior is varenichny funny — pennants and porcelain figurines, gramophones and «waste paper»Classic in an old chest of drawers, dishes with bright poppies. The pre-war telephone set was purchased at one of Moscow flea markets: the seller assured that he was standing on the table by a large nomenclature manager. On the same flea market for the restaurant, many other beautiful things were purchased: a bust of Lenin, a carpet with Shishkin’s bears, a clock with a pendulum, a top.
On the tables there are lamps under green shades, on the walls of the guitar with scarlet bows and old skates with long-dull blades.
A kind of sincere kitsch, which, without pretending to anything, does not leave indifferent either an expat, a guest, or a native Muscovite.
Andrei Kanishevsky, Project Manager “Varenichnaya Victory”, First opened a varenichnaya in Kiev. And already after it became clear that in the capital of Ukraine dumplings «a la sovetik«Are very popular Victory It was decided to open in Moscow. The first point is on the Arbat, so that it is convenient for tourists and the townspeople on the outskirts of the dumplings hand-made did not have to go.
Andrei says that owners plan to open 5–10 restaurants a year. «But, unfortunately, in Moscow it is difficult to search for premises, we have been looking at options for a couple of months now, but we are very upset by the price-quality ratio«.
