White Rabbit, Moscow

Perhaps the most whimsical restaurant in all of Moscow, White Rabbit serves a tasting menu inspired by the chef’s travels, which look equally like something out of Alice in Wonderland: think glass test tubes full of flavored liquid on ice, and sorbet served on an artful wooden basket. Located under a paneled glass dome, the restaurant offers sun-streaked views of the Kremlin.

White Rabbit traditionally gives the best view of the summer city from our open veranda.
Picturesque backyards of old Moscow districts, majestic skyscrapers of the Stalin-era, futuristic skyscrapers of Moscow-City, a blue ribbon of the river – this is only a small part of what one can see from the height of the 16thfloor of the Smolensky Passage.

Summer menu greets guests with ripe strawberries, fragrant morels, young asparagus and other seasonal delights. On a hot day you can cool off with cold cassata with fresh berries or have a salad with strawberries, smoked duck breast, radishes and parmesan sauce.

In the evening you can taste tender duck breast with soaked plum or original salad with duck tongues , pink tomatoes and quinoa. And then – have a glass of wine or taste some fresh summer cocktails. Spend some time counting stars, while skyscrapers and buildings are slowly fading away in dusk.

French Blue

French Blue has an easy, breezy, summery feel that’s perfectly suited to its Napa Valley location. That’s no revelation when you know who’s behind it—the space was conceived by AD100 architect Howard J.

Backen, who has designed a number of California’s most distinctive wineries, along with his interior designer wife, Lori. Not only did they create the space, they’re also partners in the restaurant, which specializes in dishes based on local seasonal ingredients prepared by chef Philip Wang.

Backen has a reputation for designing buildings that blur the distinction between indoor and outdoor space, and French Blue is no different.

French-blue-Header1

Here, tall windows can be opened to unite the dining room with a generous patio equipped with an outdoor fireplace, while woven dining chairs look like they could be carried outside at a moment’s notice.

No wonder the architect doesn’t want to be far away—his firm, Backen, Gillam & Kroeger Architects, has moved its St. Helena office into an adjoining building.

Volkshaus Basel

For a bar and brasserie designed by avant-garde architects Herzog & de Meuron, Volkshaus Basel appears surprisingly restrained. But that’s the point.

Built in 1925 to house a concert hall, restaurant, hotel, and library, years of renovations and modifications had obliterated the building’s initial character.

Rather than add yet another new layer, the architects peeled back as many of the alterations as they could to restore the building’s architectural identity, and then took design cues from the original structure and archival photos.
