One of my Canadian friends, when I asked him if he liked living in Moscow, said it was nice but he saw too many smokestacks in town. I was surprised with his answer and asked for details. The explanation was simple – in Canada they don't have any factories or other industrial facilities inside the city limits, all of them are at least 30 kilometers away by zoning laws. In Moscow we have all sorts of factories and chimneys even inside the Garden ring if you take a close look.
So the excellent view from Soho Rooms windows afforded us a good panorama of Moscow's smokestacks. You can enjoy seeing massive plant with five huge chimneys and the smoke coming out of it across the embankment. According to the press-release it is called "wonderful river view."
Each dish we ordered from Soho kitchen (run by Tim, a fantastic chef from Washington) came with an orchid flower. The waiter told us few times that "these flowers are inedible." Tim is known as a real artist with food, in the haute redneck cuisine way. I personally prefer haute European cuisine, but everyone was very impressed, and I understand that Mark Ames is a big fan of American food, so I'll keep my mouth shut here.
In my the opinion restaurant was like a dance floor. Nice to see all these girls with shiny lips (and may be imagine some of them during routine sex with your girlfriend) but better keep a distance to keep you balls safe and money secure.
I was dating a girl like this a year ago and our romance lasted about one month. One of the things Ilona asked me on our first date was, "My last boyfriend was spending ten grand a month for me, what will your contribution be?" All the time all she would talk about is the price of her dress or some cashmere sweater and where she bought it. Then she disappeared one morning because the presents I brought her were not expensive enough.
Well, as my friend told me, this kind of girl will always wind up with more money than you. Though Ilona's blowjobs anywhere anytime, from a restaurant we'd visit to a car then on the elevator – that will stay in my loving memory forever and I doubt I can ever get better ones. So, my friends, if you're interested in these kinds of romances and have enough cash to pay for your sins, Soho Rooms is the right place for you. But hurry up, soon this place may not be there! Or my reviewer sense is wrong.
