At first we thought that the word “Expensive” was a mistranslation, but then we opened the menu…Don’t be frightened by the prices, if you show interest in the restaurant’s Masonic theme, your waiter is likely to give you a “10 times cheaper” discount card. Besides, we are convinced that the food and fascinating ambiance are well worth the insane prices. As we entered, an attendant dressed us in the Masonic apron, and then introduced this fascinating cult. It was quite revealing how influential the Masons have been in shaping world history. Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Peter the Great and local heroes Mykhailo Hrushevsky and Ivan Franko were all Masons. This place is brimming with fascinating symbolism, relics and tales, and the menu ain’t bad either. The European fare drips with authenticity; this is perhaps the only place in town where you can find a classic Caesar salad. The centrepiece is an antique piano on which a pianist performs Friday - Sunday from 20:00 - 23:00.
