Until you have experienced the opulence of all that is the best of Russian, you have only slight knowing of what opulence really is. The Franco-Russian restaurateur M. Dellos has now opened a flagship two-storey cafe/restaurant on the Place de la Madeine. It is in keeping with the Moscow flagship of the same name, Cafe Pouchkine. More than just macarons, this fine dining establishment offers several distinct dining areas. There is the cosy library, fit for a manor and just as stately. Then upstairs, as you rise above the crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling just above the stairwell, you enter into an elegant dining room with views directly onto the Eglise Madeleine, just in your sight line. The cuisine here offers a choice of French and Russian. The Maison Dellos is a Franco-Russian house and so the pastries for your dessert will be an enticement of both French and Russian confections.

- Romantic Dining: "Often one wouild think of lunch or tea time for this location, which are both good choices. But dinner offers a secluded, romantic destination, especially if you request the room with the fireplace upstairs, off of the main dining room. Portions here are generous in keeping with that Russian spirit of opulence."
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: No expense was spared in creating this sister-flagship to the original Pouchkine in Moscow. That said, you will find only refinement here and very good tastes.
