In St. Petersburg, the third "Happiness" has opened - a cafe and pastry shop of the Global Point Family restaurant group. The new institution, like the previous one on Isaakievskaya, is located in the hotel building, on the ground floor of Corinthia on 55 Nevsky.
The menu was traditionally developed by the brand chef of the company Dmitry Reshetnikov. Almost all items - from soups and salads to hot and desserts - are new. As a bonus to the main dishes bring homemade bread - rye, ciabatta or baguette. Classic breakfasts with scrambled eggs, cereals and croissants are still available all day, and you can take any meal with you - they will pack it in a box with handmade prints.
The sweet menu is almost bigger than the main one. Among the desserts are croissants, dunishes, cakes, ice cream, homemade chocolate and cookies according to the recipes of the pastry chef Laurent Moreno, known for his work in Parisian institutions Laduree and Fauchon. In addition to the standard positions of strong alcohol, the bar card includes author's cocktails, including non-alcoholic ones, as well as a line of wines and whiskeys.
In the interior of "Happiness" on Nevsky there is a lot of wood, tiles and unusual lamps. The ceiling ceilings were left open, designing a special lighting for them. The walls were decorated with numerous branded stencils. Of the unusual attributes is a working Soviet menthol payphone, which is called Happy Phone.
"Happiness" on Nevsky is a place that we have been waiting for a long time, to which we have been going for a long time. And it turned out to be very dear, warm, perhaps beloved. Creating Happiness on Nevsky, we wanted people from all over the world to come to St. Petersburg to get their piece of Happiness. This is a cafe and pastry shop with desserts from Laurent Moreno, cuisine from Dmitry Reshetnikov and the atmosphere from our team, guests and angels. Remember loved ones more often, talk about simple but important words, call them on Happy Phone, send letters via Happiness Mail. We wanted to break the stereotype of the lack of atmospheric and tasty places on Nevsky, we hope we succeeded.
