On the Komm
It was only a matter of time before molecular cuisine—that fine art of transforming food into whimsy—showed up in Moscow. Anatoly Komm, called a genius by food critics here, is the man to thank. In his hands crab isn't crab, it's a foamy concoction that belongs in a hall of wonder. Komm has five Moscow restaurants; his eponymous eatery (12 Kutuzovsky Prospekt; 7-495/725-5575) has been billed as a gastronomic spectacle, where meals can run up to $250 a head.
