In this cold, understated high-tech ambiance you lose track of time and you barely recall what season it is outside. But who cares? Just concentrate on the food. Located on the ground floor of DoubleTree by Hilton, where most of the guests are foreigners, Monk is a mostly Russian restaurant that opens very early. Breakfast starts at 7 a.m. . While breakfast is excellent, lunch is also very ample. There are not one, but two kinds of Olivier salad, lots of seafood, and do not overlook the mini-pastries with most diverse fillings. These are posikunchiki, a rare specialty from the region of Perm. You can enter this restaurant from the hotel or walk in from the street. Hotel guests, who use the indoor entrance, usually wear their indoor clothes in the restaurant.
