It happens when you forget expectations when you open the door with a wave of the hand, yet not knowing what an absurd Moscow love is waiting for you. Why absurd? Because for me Moscow is a city that I can’t understand, a city I don’t want to go to, a city that I’m bored to walk around. Therefore, the least you expect from yourself is falling in love with its scenery. But Youth cafe Moscow is an exception, it’s my ray of light, my personal vanishing and coming youth, it’s a place when you completely forget how old you are, and you just laugh at the counter, knocking back Appletinis one after another.
The guys nurtured by the Delicatessen team are experts not only in hashtags. But in harmonious eclectics (Chinese cat is waving his clockwork paw from a neon TV, the bar counter that is made of multicolored tiles, Spanish themes and a toreador on the fence, Ikea chairs on the third floor and vintage wooden chairs on the second), steaks, drinks and even curry. Three floors that are packed to the roof during weekends, are the keys (pay attention to the logo) to the times when it was necessary to have fun every day, and a very mature café that, like your parents, carefully provides you with everything you need and even more all at once.
I like their endless enthusiasm and zeal. Kruzhini from gooseberry, pesto from estragon, Japanese pancakes, childishly funny videos. After spending a full day in the bar, bartenders forcefully strong-arm you into accepting gifts.
“Appletini” now is a must-have “bring me this, please” from all friends who stay in Moscow, my husband sees Denver steak in his sweetest dreams, and I dream of jerky, I remember the ramen bowl that I wanted to finish so badly, but how big was it? One liter maybe? Sometimes I think where I would like to be carried away right at this moment, if there would be such an opportunity. And for the second time the stomach plays a trick on the brain and brings me to Yunost’ (although beforehand it used to be Port Said or Barcelona’s La Xampanyeria that) for a heavy lunch/dinner or immorally beautiful #drunch (it’s like a brunch, but with Mimosa, Bellini or Bloody Mary).
Non-simple simple everyday food, smart food, quality cocktails, sometimes made from unexpected products, take-away cocktails (which is very nice), a modest interior with cooks and bartenders, who have unrestrained fantasies and aspirations – that’s probably the ultimate concept for a café … the ultimate concept of eternal youth for any age.
