Santa Maria Novella Store
Santa Maria Novella Facebook page
In the XIII century, there was a garden behind a high wall near Santa Maria Novella Square in Florence. The garden cultivated herbs and flowers for the medicinal needs by Dominican monks. In 1612 their balms, ointments and elixirs became available to people around, and the glory of production was so great that the monastery became the supplier of the Grand Duke yard and the official workshop of his royal majesty. Since that time, Santa Maria Novella production has developed and gained world fame.
Recently, the first Santa Maria Novella store opened in Moscow. It is a nice, silent place, where consultants tell you about each aroma, legends around it and secrets of compounding. Smells are pleasant: producers never change the recipes. Among uncountable number of perfumes, everyone can find something special – the brand has aromas for men, women and home aromas.

The authentic Korean restaurant Hite has opened on 1905 Goda Street. In the evenings, Hite is overcrowded, the most part of guests are from South Korea. Therefore, the table should be reserved in advance. The menu is big – you can order snacks, soups, noodles and of course, Korean barbecue. A brazier with wok on coals is put on the table, waiters bring cut meat, fish or chicken, and guests with pleasure prepare the barbeque themselves. The prices in the restaurant are logical.
If you come for the first time with a company, take modim- sen-coche – assorted barbecue that includes beef, pork brisket, pork neck and ribs, and costs 3800 rubles per 900 grams. Together with meat, you will have cut garlic, soy paste sauce of average sharpness and a basket of lettuce leaves. It is also necessary to remember that you will get six free snack (salty quail eggs, kimchi, a marinated radish, pickles, a squid and spicy carrots) and even soup after making the order.

Younost’ Facebook page
Café Younost’ (youth), made by the Delicatessen team, opened at Posledny Lane 2 in the beginning of February. The concept of the place is ‘eggs — meat — fish — bread. And as usual, the best binge in the city’. Here you will find interesting and complicated in details every day food, classical old-fashioned cocktails and homemade fruit liqueurs.
The interior is simple, made in the loft style by literally the owners’ and employees’ hands within a month.
Prices surprise with democracy. Owners say that they try to use only local products and maximize their own production instead of buying it somewhere else.
The menu is interesting. You will find here legendary egg plows with a ber-monte and French fries, Hummus from beans with peanut butter, smoked roast beef that is served with smoked seeds of fennel, a chervil and marinated vegetables; cheeks with paprika with vegetable marrows, a sage and mint, and the most delicate self-made sausages — with potato, celery mashed potatoes and sauce ju.
