The restaurant Syr (The Cheese) — perhaps the most famous Italian restaurant in Moscow, and its chef Mircko Zago — is loved by all, without exception, features in culinary publications, and guests on many culinary TV programs (the winner of the show ‘’Lord of Taste’’ (2002), Channel One Russia, and as well as a strict jury in the Russian edition of ‘’MasterChef’’ (2013-2014), STS Channel).
The restaurant Syr opened doors in June 2001, and ever since has been full of love and guests. What is the secret of its popularity? It's simple — visitors come here as a guest to good old friends. They are good friends — admirers of the chef and traditional Italian cuisine and, of course, fans of the main delicacy of all time and nations — cheese.
Moving to the first floor, we find ourselves in the room of cheese and sand colour with lots of channels and windows — like inside a big chunk of cheese. In the menu — antipasti and pasta, different types of pizza, soups, varied meat and fish dishes. And the main honour — cheese. All this, splendor is worth trying in conjunction with wines carefully selected by chef and sommelier. At the heart of the restaurant wine list — are wines of Italy and France, countries where the creation of cheese and wine, are no more and no less, than a national art form.

The main thing — is to create a pleasant atmosphere and tasteful dishes to transmit the culture of Italy. ‘’An Italian who cooks in the world beyond Italy, is always a cultural ambassador. Even not working in a ‘’typically Italian’’ restaurant, I transmit to my co-workers and to our clients, some notions. I have the opportunity to expose the history that is behind a recipe, the cultural habits of a region, in general our ‘’know how’’, — says Mircko.
