Admiralteysky Canal Embankment, 2A St Petersburg 190098
Set on New Holland island, which was once a lumberyard and is being transformed into an arts center, Kuznya House is a charming restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating and delicious food. The menu is modern continental, with starters like grilled eggplant with yogurt or tuna sashimi with smoked tomatoes, followed by pastas or grilled meat or seafood. The brick building features a wood-paneled dining room, where you can choose to eat around tables, cozy couch areas or the private library room. Outdoor tables face the park, which is planted with grasses and is reminiscent of the Highline in New York in the way that it merges an industrial legacy with creative urban landscaping.
