Garage Café is one of the Museum’s important public spaces.
Chef Aleksei Bagreev’s menu is centered around simple food and updated every season, with an accent on local ingredients. Special menus accompany some Garage exhibitions.
The menu for the project “We Treasure Our Lucid Dreams.” The Other East and Esoteric Knowledge in Russian Art, 1905–1969 includes homemade ricotta with Altai emmer and root vegetables; creamy parsnip soup; wild Siberian pike fishcakes, and Stone — Black Sesame dessert.
Kids’ menu dishes are served on plates created by students of Russia’s only education and creativity center for adults with autism spectrum disorders, which is run by the Anton Is Right Here Foundation.
Garage Café supports the Museum’s policy of responsible consumption. Gluten-free bucatini pasta is used instead of plastic straw, takeaway boxes and cutlery are made of sugarcane and cornstarch, and all paper used in the Café (including napkins) is FSC and EU Ecolabel certified. Customers who use their own cups receive 30% discount on any takeaway soft drink. The Café also sorts its garbag.
With an eye to minimizing waste, Aleksei Bagreev uses vegetable and bread offcuts for decoration and flavoring.
