Resident Head Chef of Café Pushkin.
In 1999 Andrei Makhov was invited to head the kitchen of a restaurant that had not yet opened.“Andrei Dellos won me over with one thing he said, which I still love to repeat. He said, ‘Café Pushkin is a place our grandchildren will visit,” Makhov later recalled.
The success of Andrei Dellos’s restaurant can be explained simply: “We’ve created harmony at “Pushkin” – here even mistakes turn into advantages”
Despite looking like a nineteenth-century mansion, the restaurant was actually built from scratch. All that survives from the original building is the facade wall – now converted into a building which is indistinguishable from a historic monument.
