"Pedro & Gomez at Larissa", two small halls with dimmed light, an open kitchen and a full equiped bar. The menu, in Russian and English. during the preparation for launch it changed four or five times. The final version includes more then twenty dishes - mostly street food from around the world, from Mexico to Asia. Nevertheless, there are no banal positions - the same hot dog is made from fish fillet, cooked in the manner of fin and chips, with crispy onion and cabbage, and burgers are not found at all as such (alternative: soft bans - sandwich in Japanese style, consisting of an air bun with pork, cucumbers and onions with special mayonnaise). Menu is made by the duo Frohud Helberg and Marie Sommerchichld.
In the spring of this year, they launched the restaurant Kontora, reliably hidden behind the granite walls of the residential complex Smolny Park and therefore inaccessible to casual guests, and now "went out to the people" with a simpler and more affordable meal - to the main restaurant street of the city. Note that all the characters in the title are random: it's nothing more than an invention of the managing director of Alexei Beschastny, a native of Probka Family, who once opened the "Seagull" bar.
In the kitchen "Pedro & Gomez at Larissa" like to use a jasper - it prepares oysters and mussels, meat, bake bread and bread. Portions are designed to ensure that guests try several dishes at once and can eat them with their hands. Against this background stands out ramen - a large portion of soup with beef or smoked tofu. In addition to ramen, there are several options for vegans - Summer Rolls from vegetables in rice paper with hoisin sauce, classic spring rolls or Mexican fiesta (nachos with homemade salsa, guacamole and bean paste). Also on the menu are three dessert options - simple, but beating right at the target: waffles on yogurt with sour cream and blueberry jam, roasted banana with caramel sauce and pie with pecans. All meals can be taken with you in an ethical package.
The interior of the cafe-bar was designed by the St. Petersburg workshop "Delo", she also made furniture - high tables and bar stools with soft leather seats. The mood is set by brick walls, previously hiding behind a layer of gypsum, from which it was decided to get rid of. Altogether there are about 40 seats, some of which are located behind the counter - this option is suitable for those who, for example, want to get a home barman or a moonshine, which are not in the bar chart. In the latter you can find a nice inexpensive wine (from 1,200 rubles per bottle and from 190 rubles per glass), classic cocktails and all kinds of strong alcohol.
