Visitors to Moscow might want to check out the Mitzva Bar in a chic neighborhood of downtown. A play on the word, “bar mitzvah,” the bar offers sophisticated cocktails and Jewish-themed food ranging from gefilte fish to the Sephardi chreimeh. It is “kosher-style” meaning there is no pork or shellfish, and no mixing of milk and meat, but the ingredients are not all certified kosher and the bar is open on Shabbat.

Jewish culture is trending throughout eastern Europe but the Mitzva Bar takes it one step further. The menu is a play on a Torah scroll with wooden dowels that unroll to reveal the selections. Some of the cocktails are served in Kiddush cups, and some of the food on Seder plates.
