The fusion menu at Terrassa—a rooftop restaurant with a blond wood interior, an open kitchen, and views of the Kazan Cathedral's majestic dome—somehow manages to combine the fresh flavors of California with the hearty fare of imperial Russia. There are variations on salad, sushi, and steak (the requisite trio in Russia's trendiest restaurants), and both the pepperoni pizza and the beef stroganoff with boiled buckwheat and mushrooms are excellent. By glamorous Russian standards, Terrassa is not priced to outrage, and at about $8, the house wine is practically a bargain. It's a popular spot for a late, leisurely breakfast (service starts at 11 am), and during the White Nights, when expats and tourists mingle with St. Tropez–tanned locals on the terrace, it seems like the center of the universe.—Sophia Kishkovsky
