During the special “Sofia Restaurant Week”, from 7th to 13th May, you can taste a 3 Course Set Menu in one of the 25 participating Restaurants in Sofia. We decided to book at Club Pouchkine, impatient. We tell you more about our very nice experience.
Situated in the House of Moscow on Moskovska street, behind the Russian church and close to the Alexander Nevsky cathedral, Club Pouchkine is an amazing contemporary restaurant and bar. Indoors, this place offers a variety of rooms named after classical Russian authors. Each room is slightly different in style, yet all are furnished to reflect the building’s original late 19th century decor. High ceilings makes the space gigantic. The deco combines old and historical with design and contemporary and creates an unique universe in the heart of the capital. We chose to taste this restaurant during the Sofia Restaurant Week. About the special menu, that you can see there, we chose to start with the Foie gras, blueberries and crackers. Really delicious, the Foie gras was tasty and the blueberries coulis and mint a nice sweet idea. As main dish, Alexander chose the Salmon steak with steamed spinach and me the Magret de canard with caramelized onions and citruses. Then, the dessert was Tiramisu for Alexander and Lemon tart “meringue” for me, a light and fluffy tart with perfect shortcrust pastry and a suave lime flavor. This menu was simply … a delight ! Club Pouchkine brings fresh and delicious produce from the market. The menu and dishes change according to the season and according to the market has to offer. Preparation, service and presentation were perfect, down to the last small detail. For drink, we took a Bulgarian fresh rosé. With a selection of over 250 wines, Club Pouchkine’s wine list will satisfy even the most sophisticated oenophile’s palate. The Bar has a extensive list of cocktails to please anyone’s whim. For the connoisseur, we have an impressive whiskey collection, encompassing over 200 different labels from around the world. A place to (re)discover in any occasion.
