Named for Dostoyevsky's world-renowned novel about a man who was too nice, this laid-back café is filled with antiques, Soviet relics, and lots of books, including translations of The Idiot in various languages. Soon after it opened in 1997, it become one of the most famous vegetarian eateries in Russia. Its long menu is mostly made up of vegetarian versions of Russian food, such as kotletki, patties that here are made of broccoli, brussels sprouts, and cauliflower and served with pickled cabbage and carrots. Recently, many meat and seafood options have been added by popular demand: there are now lots of grilled-fish options, as well as classics like beef Stroganoff and meat dumplings. Whichever way you order, every meal comes with a complimentary vodka shot.
