Hamlet + Jacks
Specialising in contemporary Russian cuisine, Hamlet + Jacks is located in the historic centre of St Petersburg, set within an old jewellery shop that dates back to before the Russian revolution. The impressive decor, which includes marble floor and windows and a huge antique-style clock based on original sketches, pays tribute to the past, while the menu is modern and experimental. Executive chef Evgeny Vikentev has divided the menu into three sections - Russian cuisine, world dishes, and vegetarian dishes - all of which offer culinary masterpieces. The wine list is equally extensive, and includes 140 wines from organic, biodynamic and natural wineries.
