Vostochny Kvartal lives up to its name, acting as the ‘Eastern Quarter’ of the Arbat. Uzbek cooks and plenty of Uzbek patrons are a sign that this is a real-deal place to get your plov, an Uzbek pilaflike dish of meat and rice. Despite the Arbat address, the restaurant is actually on Plotnikov per, behind the Bulat Okudzhava statue.
