Geographically, there is no place further from Madrid inside Europe than Russia. Luckily, we have many restaurants that shorten that distance and, for a few hours at least, make us feel like we are in Dostoyevsky’s country. One of them is Rasputin, a mixture of decadent, romantic and 19th century decor on Calle Yeseros, 2, very close to Calle Bailén.
Its decor takes us back to pre-communist Russia, reminiscent of the times of Anna Karenina. It has an à la carte menu but also set menus, with delicious dishes such as blinis with caviar, stroganoff sirloin steak and duck and salmon recipes. Despite it being in the “20 euros or more per person” range, it is excellent value for money if we go by the generous reviews left on the internet by satisfied customers.
