Shooters Bar and Grill
Shooters Bar & Grill is a great new pub located at 46 Novoslobodskaya, 10 minutes from Mendelevskaya or Noveslobodskaya Metro station.
The Bar and Grill are located downstairs, but also has a small summer terrace, which is conveniently away from the street. The crowd is largely mixed with a good proportion of ex-pats, the younger Russian crowd (students from the local universities) and professional Russian upwardlymobiles.
The food is superb pub, with the best burgers in Moscow. We started out with nachos (250 r.) they were great with generous toppings of cheese and guacamole. The crispy black garlic bread (110 r.) melts in your mouth, and cheese sticks (210 r.) and chicken nuggets are done just right.
Salads are fresh, we tasted the Caesar with chicken (290 r.), and the Shooters bacon salad (210 r.). Both were excellent.
All sandwiches come with fries, and our favorite was the BLT (170 r.).
A main dish sampled was the Beef Osso Bucco burgundy style (490 r.) which was tender and tasty. The fish dishes were fresh, and presented well, especially liked were the fish and chips (590 r.) and the sea bass (450 r.) which is prepared with extra virgin olive oil and thyme.
Burgers are tops here, with the shooters burger (240 r.) an excellent choice, all fresh ingredients. The huge bacon burger choice is the Super burger with 8 slices of bacon, 8 slice of Swiss cheese, 2 patties, with all the sauces and onions, lettuce tomatoes and pickles. For 850 roubles you’ll be satiated!
Desserts range from 140–290 roubles; we tried the cheesecake, which was as good as any in New York.
Wednesday nights are Social Networking nights, some say it is taking over from the long lost ex-pat night, often the evening is sponsored with free Shooters Beer and Champagne and snacks, in its 6th week more than 100 people show up to mix and chat and then often dance
There are many events at Shooters and it will shortly host a new phenomenon in Moscow: Pub Theatre. Pub Theatre in England is very common and completely respectable; Sunday nights will show alternative entertainment and interesting ways to spend a Sunday evening, something different.
Shooters is breaking the mould for Moscow, offering quality food, drink and service at reasonable prices — well actually much cheaper than most places in Moscow. It is a neighborhood bar you will feel comfortable in. And they also show most sporting events. On other nights Shooters has a DJ or musicians.
