A restaurant with farm products in the menu, Friday parties for adults and animation for kids on weekends.
A symbol of the restaurant is a giant six-meter felt boot (Valenok) - a piece of art called «Russian Size», created by the contemporary artist Valerie Loshak. It won the popularity and love in Instagram even before the opening. The world’s largest handmade Valenok symbolizes Russia with its big soul and vastness.
The restaurant also impresses by its almost unlimited space: eight-meter ceilings, two-storey windows and a space atrium. Inside there is a sitting area for at least 340 persons. The inner yard will be furnished with umbrellas and tables for another four hundred guests closer to the summer.
The international menu is principally built on the Russian products: beef is imported from Bryansk, fish - from Murmansk, rabbit - from Voronezh, milk products – from Dubna. Even vegetables are fresh and natural here - it’s spring time! Sergey Batukov, («Strana Kotoroi Net», «Minselkhoz») Chef of Valenok, cooks simple food: tender forshmak, sufficiently hot ajapsandali, tiny pies, juicy chicken Luleh kebab, fragrant homemade noodles with braised lamb, manti and cheburekki, grilled pike perch with barley porridge and crab cakes. Chef and his team use a wood-burning grill, robata grill, tandoor and smokehouse located at the absolutely open kitchen which sometimes transforms in a vegetable row of a grocery market in the best tradition of Novikov.
Desserts deserve an individual attention. Marina Nosova (Vogue Cafe) is a pastry chef of Valenok and it means that you can easily visit the restaurant just for tea (samovar tea drinking will start soon) and spend a half of the day by tasting completely unique cakes, pies and pastries. Taste the childhood with her crispy rolls with protein cream and homemade funnel cake! Enjoy the legendary «Napoleon» cake with pastry cream and almost weightless cake with strawberries which simply disappears from the plates in an eye blink!
Valenok plans to switch to the club life on Fridays and Saturdays: parties, live music, concerts of young bands (five days a week from Wednesday to Sunday) and other fun that will be organized by the art team led by Ina Tundra . Younger guests will be entertained not less than adults: a kid's room will be designed for animation workshops. Running of the family brunches is also the nearest plan for the Valenok team.
But the main trump card of a new place is the price – RUB 1200-1500 for one guest. No matter what is more important and useful for you from the range of services but one thing we know for sure: when you see the bill, you will be definitely surprised!
