After earning a pair of Michelin stars with healthful cuisine vitale at his eponymous Bavaria restaurant, chef Heinz Winkler turns to heartier fare. Jeroboam, in a soaring modern glass-and-steel dining room at the brand-new Ritz-Carlton Moscow , pairs traditional French finery with high-quality Russian ingredients. The service is fit for a czar, with a near army of maître d's, sommeliers, and servers hovering about as you sip an obligatory glass of champagne and peruse the lengthy menu. Winkler expertly dips into East, West, and Russian traditions: Caucasus crayfish floating in a sea of saffron sauce; veal laced with black truffles; and lobster served atop black noodles. Save room for the crisp-fried chocolate truffle or the far lighter carpaccio of Colombian pineapple (entrées, $80$110).
