Raff House

In 2011, Nara and Rafael Papyan, fine jewellery specialists in Moscow, approached me to present their vision for a fine dining restaurant as part of their new boutique in Moscow.
Set in a magnificent 18th century mansion in an exclusive district, it was once owned by the family of Prince Alexander Volkonsky where poet Alexander Pushkin was one of the most renowned guests. The brother and sister team have a vision to combine jewellery and fine dining, to make this historical residence a prime location for luxury and a top French restaurant in the Russian capital.
The idea of a new challenge showcasing French cuisine and produce with the backdrop of some of the best examples of European jewellery won me over. The Raff House restaurant will open its doors in Moscow in November 2012 and will be a new opportunity for me to express my personality and emotions and to demonstrate the authenticity and respect I champion.
Behind the building's pseudo baroque façade, designed by the architect Nikitinenen in 1862, Milan designer Michele Mazzola is working alongside Rafael and Nara Papyan to make this residence a unique place where tradition and history come together using contemporary design.
It is the setting where I will offer food from the heart working as I do with exceptional ingredients and an outstanding French wine list, providing the Russian public with excellent and exceptional French cuisine.
