Award-winning farm-to-table restaurant "Mark & Lev" is located in the scenic countryside of Tula Oblast, 120 km from Moscow. TimeOut magazine labelled it as "the chief local food restaurant" in Russia. At "Mark & Lev" we use only locally sourced produce from small and mid-sized farms within a 150 km range. All our suppliers are both our neighbours and our friends since they live and work close by.

The brand's second restaurant opened in 2016 in Rublyovka neighbourhood near Moscow. It became an outpost for the Tula farm cluster, as well as for other farmers from European Russia who share in the same philosophy.

Mikhail Lukashonok
Brand Chef
Mikhail was born in Saint Petersburg where he studied culinary art. In 1997, at seventeen, he found his first job in a restaurant. In 2008, Mikhail became sous chef of two popular restaurants in his home-city managed by the Ginza restaurant holding: "Terrace" and "Mamalyga." From 2009 to 2012, Mikhail was appointed as executive chef of "Volkonsky" bakery & café chain and after that as brand-chef of "Traveler's Coffee" chain.
He moved to the Tula region in 2014 to open the first locavore restaurant in Russia. In 2017, Mikhail became brand chef of "Mark & Lev" restaurants.
PRESS
At the first and only "locavore" restaurant in Russia — also a farm — local chef Mikhail Lukashonok prepares dishes using only ingredients grown within 100 miles of the restaurant and he himself cultivates vegetables and herbs in the garden.
Russia Beyond the Headlines

The accent in every dish is on flavor — the clear, vibrant flavor of naturally grown and produced products prepared in ways that keep every taste vivid and balanced. It's the sort of place where you hope no one notices you emptying the breadbasket to mop up every last bit of salad dressing and sauce.
