Obshchestvo Chistykh Tarelok, or “The Clean Plates Society,” is a trendy café/bar located not far from the Moika. It attracts a young, trendy clientele, and while the menu is not extensive, it’s varied enough to satisfy a wide range of tastes and palettes. There are salads, soups, “fast food” - shaverma and a selection of gourmet hamburgers - as well as fancier main courses, such as steak and duck. There is even a vegetarian menu with lentils and couscous. They also bring free bread and crudités, a rarity in Russian restaurants. There is a children’s menu, but it’s hard to imagine a child truly being welcome here - the atmosphere is just too hipstery and the music selection probably wouldn’t please parents. It is, however, a good option if you’re dining alone, since you can eat at the bar.
