The UK publication Restaurant has ranked White Rabbit 18th in its World's 50 Best Restaurants 2016 list.

The British fine dining magazine Restaurant has included White Rabbit, a restaurant in Moscow, in its yearly World's 50 Best Restaurants list” assigning it a prestigious 18th place. The ranking is based on a poll of international chefs, restaurateurs, and restaurant critics.

White Rabbit specializes in modern Russian food, enriching traditional cuisine with such extravagant delicacies as Yalta rapa whelk, caviar, Black sea oysters and Crimean truffles.

“Chef Vladimir Mukhin is in the vanguard of a new wave of young Russian culinary talents. Known as much for his use of local, seasonal ingredients as for his charisma, Mukhin is making international waves,” says the top-50 list’s website.

Located in the heart Moscow, White Rabbit provides its visitors with a stunning 360-degree view of the city from a glass dome on the 16th floor of Smolensky Passage overlooking the Arbat, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Moskva River, and the Moscow City business complex.

The restaurant entered the list in 23rd place in last year’s top 50, earning the Highest New Entry Award.

A place in the world’s top 50 is sometimes compared to a Michelin star: reservations, and concomitant financial success, raise considerably for those who manages to top the list.
