    Whose lifestyle are we talking about here?


    LOL, the "geniune 1950s American diner". That really did look very genuine, at least how I imagine it!
    I don't know the value of the rouble or what the price range for eating out is in Russia, so I have no idea.
    But definitely if I went to Moscow I'd want a place that was different from anything I could find in Western Europe.

    I assume that the 1950s style American diner would be for the locals. I certainly wouldn't fly thousands of miles to go there. On my trip to Russia, Ukraine and Belarus I only visited an American business one time. McDonald's. Why? We did a LOT of walking that day in Kiev and wanted to sit for a spell. We were also curious to see if the french fries tasted the same as in the USA. They did. Here in the USA, I have been to a few Russian restaurants. Before my trip I didn't know if they were close to the real thing or not. Now that I've been, they seemed close to the real thing to me. Now I appreciate that those restaurants are here in the USA. Maybe Russians that have been to the USA and liked it do the same for the 1950s style American diner?

    Same here. If I eat in Russia I want Russian food. You can get a good meal at a Teremok for about the same as a meal at McDonald's.
    A combo meal at McDonald's is about 250 rubles ($7.24 USD) but you can get a minced meat and potato blini at the new Teremok in St. Peterburg for only 114 rubles ($3.30 USD).
    Also, the last time I checked you could get a Baltic beer and a Caesar Blini at the Teremok in Novy Arbat for only 219 rubles ($6.34 USD). A 20 ounce (591 ml) coke will probably cost about 70 rubles ($2.00 USD) - but it depends on where you buy it.
    An average inexpensive meal will only cost about 250-500 rubles ($7.24-$14.47 USD) but if you want really awesome food from a restaurant like Cafe Pushkin or Vogue Cafe then that will cost over 2,500 rubles (over $72.35 USD) and dress code is mandatory.
    There's also restaurants like One Red Square where the prices start at about 700 rubles ($20.25 USD) for a meal.
    So yeah, it's really about the same pricing as the restaurants here. Well, even less since you can get a good meal at a Teremok for less than $10 USD. I can't even get a hamburger for $10 at my favorite sandwich shop here.

    Btw, the restaurants I mentioned serve Russian food. Teremok specializes in soups, borscht, and blini.

    Of course we have all kinds of restourants in Moscow with really different prices! And it make a sense to try how is Italian or Chinese food here.

    Afisha.ru is probably one of the best websites which contains prices, reviews and so on
    about everything in every city. Unfortunately, only in Russian.
