Save up some Rubles for your Russian visit.  My basic thought on the price/ value scale in Russia is (unless you’re a local) you get what you pay for.  In other words, a 20% increase in cost may reward you with a  meal that is a 100% increase in quality and flavor.

It’s best if you try to forget your love of the grape while in Russia as wines are prohibitively expensive.  They also prove to be a mixed bag quality-wise.  The wines are imported from other countries, although on several occasions I drank a quite nice Russian sparkling wine (it’s a relative bargain too).

The Gastronomia Yeliseyvsky no longer exists in St. Petersburg, but is still going strong on Tverskaya Ulistsa 14 in Moscow.
