Review on ZIMA Russian Street Food and Bar
ZIMA is from the Table Table restaurant group which originally launched in Moscow during 2014, and replaces their restaurant Jean Jacques which they opened in this Soho location in 2015. Occupying a smart Grade II listed townhouse, right next door to the legendary Ronnie Scott's, it's laid out over three floors. Featuring funky interiors, there's a relaxed colourful ground floor restaurant with a more formal restaurant upstairs. The basement is home to the bar which has it's own entrance, and there's also a delightful secluded and spacious rooftop terrace.
The restaurant takes its name Zima from the Russian word for winter, and its also the nickname of the driving force behind this venture one of Russia's most prominent chefs, author, TV presenter and restaurateur, Alexei Zimin. He has created a new concept of Russian style street food combining classic produce from his homeland such as sturgeon, venison and caviar, showcasing a series of modern style tapas dishes.
On the drinks front there's a selection of home-infused flavoured vodkas, cocktails and an extensive wine list to complement the food.
