Russia’s most famous and successful restaurateur, Arkady Novikov heads an empire with more than 50 restaurants throughout Moscow. He has put an individual stamp on each of his restaurants, enthused by different regions of cuisine. The man with The Midas Touch, his organisation includes supermarkets, florists and a 15 acre farm, with some 7,000 people in his employ.
It was back in 1992 that Arkady opened his first restaurant. Still run today on the same principles of quality food, service, design and atmosphere on which it was founded nearly 20 years ago, Sirena laid the foundations for his empire. Since those early days, Arkady’s name has become a byword for quality dining in the city, with a clientele that includes everyone from Vladimir Putin and Bill Clinton through to Naomi Campbell. Indeed people go to a new Novikov restaurant simply because he is involved.
Having conquered his homeland, Arkady Novikov is now set to become a global restaurateur with the opening of Novikov Restaurant & Bar in the heart of London.
There is little doubt that, for those with the money to enjoy it, London is one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan cities in the World, which, combined with being one of the safest cities in which to live, makes it a very popular choice for Russian Oligarchs, Chinese Billionaires and Indian Steel Magnates.
