15 Kitchen Bar is my favorite among trendy Moscow restaurants and one of the best, if not the best of hipster Moscow restaurants.  So small and hidden it’s almost a speakeasy. Plus, it’s around the corner from my house and has the best cocktails in Moscow! Make sure to try out Seven – their Asian-inspired best seller.

This lovely restaurant is decorated in a hipster style with industrial details and bright colors, with a perfect vibe. Their summer backyard is very Instagramable, helping its vibe as one of the best hipster Moscow places!

They change chefs every 3 months, a concept that puts it among the top trendy Moscow restaurants. Varying international cooks, the menu is exciting and ever-changing. The bartenders are super friendly and over the weekend after hours, the bar turns into a dance floor. If you ask me this is for sure one of the best hipster Moscow places!

For a great afternoon, Strelka is the top spot among trendy Moscow restaurants. Located in hip Red October, its terrace faces Moscow river, opposite Christ the Savior Cathedral. Young, hip and chill, the vibe always makes me return!

A popular party hangout at night, their menu is simple but ok and perfect for brunch and lazy afternoons. However, it is not the food that brings you here but rather the ambiance and location.  It’s the ultimate spot among hipster Moscow restaurants to watch the sun setting behind Moscow buildings.

Another Pariarshi jewel, CutFish mixes Asian food with a bistro style and eclectic vibe for one of the most unique hipster  Moscow restaurants. Its Japanese-style open kitchen offers a menu mixing sushi with other Asian flavors for a delicious fusion. The tuna carpaccio and crab cake are to die for.

With a similar feel to 15 Kitchen & Bar, Pinch is another personal favorite among the top hipster Moscow restaurants. A smaller eatery with an open kitchen and a bar, it’s downright vibrant. A gem among trendy Moscow restaurants.

This restaurant is small and cozy and you sit near each other on cool wooden tables. The concept is all about international small dishes to share, fairly interesting among hipster Moscow restaurants. You have to try out their burrata and crab cannelloni, the truffle carpaccio and the beef from the charcoal grill and to start off with their huge glasses of champagne is a must. Pinch is one of those trendy Moscow restaurants that’s the perfect spot to start off a night out!

Patriarshiye Prudy, my favorite Moscow neighborhood, is oozing with trendy Moscow restaurants. Maybe the most popular one is  Uilliam’s. This small gem among hipster Moscow restaurants is always full with people. The brunch here is great but I am not over excited over their food so that is why I only give it a 3. The vibe is however outstanding and the design and decor cosy with hipster vibes and with an open kitchen as it should be in hipster Moscow restaurants.

During spring and summer, they open the windows and the few seating spots in front of the restaurants are the best for a glass of wine while people watching all hip and cool people in Patriarshy! The best spot for sure among trendy Moscow restaurants.

800C located just by the pond, is the place if you are after tasty burgers. It has a bit kitschy and eclectic design and you have to check out the upper floor! A perfect place for weekend lunches as vibrant vibe and good food! A must among hipster Moscow restaurants for burger lovers! Try out their sweet potato pure!

 Bocconcino has the best pizzas in the area, particularly for hipster Moscow restaurants. Their truffle pasta is amazingly tasty. This place is a good spot if you want a more quite vibe as it is not as crowded as the other trendy Moscow restaurants. Perfect for lazy Sunday afternoon hang out. 

The service is great and the design is not what you expect from an Italian… As with all hipster Moscow restaurants, it is a bit more trendy and even have some lemon trees in the restaurant, which gives it a lush and cozy atmosphere.

Moscow-Delhia truly one of a kind gem among trendy Moscow restaurants and experiences. A hidden gem that is hard to find if you do not know where it is as no signs. When entering this place you enter an Indian home with the kitchen in the middle and a few tables. The window tables are the best so go for them if they are free. Here you will not get any menu but what is being cooked this day. The food is delicious, the staff super friendly and nice.  A star among  hipster Moscow restaurants that offers an unforgettable experience.

If you are up for some tasty vegetarian, a fresh juice or some super shot, then head over to a green spot among trendy Moscow restaurants, Fresh. More of a café but perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Love their healthy juices, smoothies & shots and healthy food. The menu is wide so this is a place you can return to over and over again.

The design is simplistic with lots of wooden details and their slogan is Healthy is the new sexy! A great spot for a couple of hours of blogging too or just some hipster Moscow vibe.
