The Michelin restaurant guide is going to start choosing the best restaurants in Moscow. The first selection will be unveiled in 2021, it is stated on the guide's official website.

"We are particularly enthusiastic about introducing Moscow to foodies! This mysterious and timeless capital city is a culinary gem that showcases not only local Russian products, but also the wonderful diversity of world cuisine.” Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides, said.

The Guide's inspectors are attracted by the way Moscow chefs use local products such as "Vladivostok king crab, Borodinsky bread, halibut from Murmansk", and the sour cream. 

"Gastronomy in Moscow has become a point of attraction for tourists in recent years. A variety of formats, cuisines and styles can be found here today in the Russian capital, and Moscow’s restaurants rank among the best in the major world listings. We are confident that the MICHELIN Guide’s arrival in Moscow will open up our city in a new way for both tourists and Muscovites themselves and promises to deliver plenty of positive emotions.” Sergey Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, said. 

Moscow joined the list of cities, regions and countries recently added to the guide, which includes Beijing, Slovenia and California.

However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
