Wendy’s Brings the Heat with New Ghost Pepper Menu Items

Next level spicy offerings: the ghost pepper ranch chicken sandwich and ghost pepper fries.

The Queen of Spice Brings the Heat with new menu items

Feeling spicy? Discover two fiery new menu items from Wendy’s®: the Ghost Pepper Ranch Chicken Sandwich and Ghost Pepper Fries. Then, cool off your tastebuds with a fan-favorite Frosty®. Whether you’re looking to dial up the heat or chill out this summer, Wendy’s has your back! 

Wendy’s Newest Ghost Pepper Ranch Chicken Sandwich 

As the reigning queen of spice, Wendy’s continues to bring the heat. But we don’t create heat just for the sake of heat. Instead, we strike the perfect balance of spice, while also creating items that are packed with flavor. The new Ghost Pepper Ranch Chicken Sandwich takes our signature Spicy Chicken to the next level with ghost pepper infused American cheese, ghost pepper and ranch seasoned crispy onions, lettuce, tomato and a creamy ghost pepper ranch sauce, made with fresh herbs. That’s four layers of unbeatable heat, kept in check by delicious ranch flavor! 

Welcome the New Ghost Pepper Fries 

For thrill seekers looking to double down on spice, the new Ghost Pepper Fries are a must. Made with Wendy’s natural-cut, Hot & Crispy French Fries, our Ghost Pepper Fries are coated in a unique spicy fry sauce for the ultimate flavor upgrade that you won’t want to go ghost on. They’re the perfect crispy complement to our Ghost Pepper Ranch Chicken Sandwich.  

Don’t Forget Wendy’s Signature Spicy Favorites 

You can also dial up the heat this summer with our one-of-a-kind Spicy Chicken Nuggets or our original Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Try them with our Ghost Pepper Ranch dipping sauce on the side to up the ante on heat. 

How to Balance Heat & Flavor 

If all this spice is making you sweat, never fear, the Strawberry Frosty is making its sweet return. Made with real strawberry puree, our iconic Strawberry Frosty delivers a refreshing taste of summer in every spoonful. This limited-edition treat is like the perfect summer fling, so make sure to enjoy it while it lasts. Or try pairing our spicy offerings with one of our Dave’s Craft Lemonades – the sweet and tart notes of these beloved lemonades help balance the heat. To tame the heat with every bite, add a side of our Ranch sauce to drizzle on your Ghost Pepper Ranch Chicken Sandwich or for dipping your Ghost Pepper Fries. 

From a returning fan favorite to a duo that’s sure to turn up the temperature, we have everything you need to enjoy the ideal balance of sweet and spicy. Download the Wendy’s app and head to your nearest restaurant to try out our new menu items so you can enjoy bold, fresh flavors all summer long!

Finally, a fast-food ghost pepper dish that actually brings the heat

ghost pepper restaurant near me

I’m not sure when it happened or why, but the ghost pepper — that sucker punch from Mother Nature — has become the fast-food industry’s favorite kick in the teeth. A number of food cultures have a taste for dishes ignited with superhot peppers , but the United States’ quick-serve chains have traditionally not been among them. Before Taco Bell introduced its Diablo sauce, for instance, its hottest condiment was the Fire packet, whose heat reportedly registers around 500 Scoville units .

I’ve had salads that pack more heat .

It's time to retire the Scoville scale for chile peppers

But in recent years, fast-food executives have embraced the ghost pepper, more for its name and aura of danger, I suspect, than its actual culinary or capsaicin properties. Should Wendy’s or Burger King serve nuggets that deliver the full blunt force of a ghost pepper — it can top 1 million Scoville units, more than 100 times stronger then a jalapeño — the chains would basically need to erect stations where they could dunk incapacitated customers into vats of milk.

I still remember the time, nearly a decade ago, when I was dicing a fresh ghost pepper in my kitchen. I was wearing food-safe gloves, silently telling myself not to touch my face under any circumstance. Here’s what I wrote then :

I tried a small seedless dice of the pepper, approximately the size of a pea, and within seconds, my right eye was streaming tears down my cheek, my nostrils were dripping and, worst of all, I began to hiccup uncontrollably. It was as if my head had become a wood-burning oven, lighting up my tongue and the interior of my skull. Milk provided little relief, until the burn began to subside on its own some 10 minutes later. — "Caution, these peppers bite," The Washington Post

I mean, there’s a reason the Indian government has weaponized the ghost pepper, using “ chili grenades ” for crowd control or to flush out terrorists . Such chaos may be catnip for a certain segment of diners — you brothers know who you are — but no chain with a competent legal department would ever release a genuine ghost pepper assault on the public. Not unless it actually wanted to see its chief executive do a perp walk on TV, charged with involuntary manslaughter by way of super hot peppers.

So while fast-food companies have been tripping over themselves to introduce ghost-pepper-infused items, they have often done so in a way that diminishes the chile’s power. Consider the ghost pepper wings that Popeyes rolled out more than seven years ago: They were marinated “in a blend of spicy peppers, including a dash of ghost pepper.” The wings were to ghost peppers what Little League is to MLB.

Countless fast-food operators have developed ghost pepper products in the years since then. A small sampling: The twin furnace of ghost pepper fries and a spicy chicken sandwich with ghost pepper sauce from Wendy’s; a ghost pepper McChicken from McDonald’s Canada; ghost pepper nuggets from Burger King; and a ghost pepper ranch sauce from Wendy’s.

The latest offerings arrived this month from Burger King and, perhaps surprisingly, Baskin-Robbins, both developed and promoted its items to mark the season, which is perfect: The ghost pepper has been reduced to Halloween kitsch. If we’ve learned anything about late-stage capitalism, it’s this: Given enough time, corporations can render anything toothless, even the mighty ghost pepper.

With my expectations low and cynicism high, I was shocked — shocked! — to discover the heat packed into a single scoop of Baskin-Robbins’ seasonal Spicy ’n Spooky ice cream, which, according to publicity materials , combines white chocolate and ghost pepper-flavored ice cream with dark chocolate ice cream and spicy blood orange flakes. I had expected the milky and fatty elements to basically counteract the peppers. The anticipated flavors do register first: the sweet silkiness of the ice cream, the dense richness of the dark chocolate and the candied fruit of the blood orange flakes, but once those pass, the chile pepper takes over and refuses to leave. Its heat expands like a gas on your palate, the spice both pleasurable and painful.

That’s when it hits me: I have become a human jack-o’-lantern, a head full of fire. I might as well plant myself on a stoop and wait for some teenagers to kick my face.

With its wrinkly, orange-tinted bun speckled with black sesame seeds, the ghost pepper Whopper looks like a jack-o’-lantern gone to seed. Its desiccated appearance is reinforced by the lack of traditional condiments. Without its complement of mayo and ketchup, this specialty Whopper is an unusually arid sandwich. The spicy queso and ghost pepper cheese just can’t supply the necessary moisture. Garnished with fried strips of jalapeño and bacon, the burger is reduced to a pair of imposing flavors and sensations: the heat of the ghost peppers, and the smokiness of Burger King’s famous flame grilling. That the latter can match the not insignificant heat of the ghost pepper tells you something about the intensity of BK’s flame-grill process, which the company has told me in no uncertain terms is not attributable to Liquid Smoke or anything else added to the burger.

With both dishes, however, I encountered an interesting phenomenon: The spice of the ghost peppers suppressed my desire to finish them. I left both cone and burger half-eaten, my palate fatigued by the heat. It’s as if I grew tired of fighting with the ghost pepper to get what I was really after: the sweetness of that ice cream and the savoriness of that burger.

Ghost Pepper Taqueria & Tequila

ghost pepper restaurant near me

Ratings and reviews

Location and contact.

We (2 of us) arrived shortly after they opened, place was practically empty. They asked if we had a reservation. When we said no and they tried to sit us at the bar and felt put out that we wanted a table. They did seat... us at a table but mentioned we would need to be done by 7:15 as there was a reservation (it was only 4:30!) Once seated the waitress was prompt and pleasant. Margaritas and tacos were good. As we were leaving about 1 1/2 hours later, they informed us if we made a reservation next time we could have stayed as long as we wanted. We actually did stay as long as we wanted and the restaurant only filled a couple more tables while we were there. I doubt we'll be back. More

Was our first time there and it was good. Kristen was a great server. Bartender did a good job, but not the best margarita I have ever had. Same with tacos. Good place, so going to give it 4 stars and you should give it... a try. More

Visited this establishment twice. The first time was for dessert. We sampled both the churros and deep fried ice cream. I don't know why I got my own order because they were both very sharable and so yummy. The second visit was for the works.... Margarita flights, appetizers, street tacos and dessert. Everything was so fresh and the service was friendly and always made sure we didn't need anything. I will be back. More

We made a reservation through Open table. Arrived on time. We were immediately told upon seating us that “you have a 1.5 hour time limit”! What? This was not our first time here, but have never been told that before. Chances are good that we... would be gone in that amount of time, but no restaurant is going to tell me how long I can stay! I wanted to walk out immediately, but we didn’t. Ordered a margarita and started with some chips and queso. Chips were completely stale, and bendable. At that point we were done! Check please. I will never go back there again! There are so many other places that are happy to have your business, and won’t set a timer on you. More

We really enjoyed everything here. We started with the jalapeño, pineapple, bacon guacamole which was very flavorful to go with our margaritas. We both ordered tacos, ghost whisperer which are very spicy and pollo tacos. I do have to say that we did share one... taco of each because the ghost whisperer taco kind of creeps on you with the heat. We did sit at the bar and there were maybe a handful of other people there while we were. Nice place to visit to enjoy some great food and drinks. More

After reading the rave reviews, my boyfriend and I wanted to try for ourselves. We were very disappointed. The pineapple salsa was very bland. Our tacos had no flavor.. we had better elsewhere.. we may have had higher expectations walking in.... sadly we will not... be back More

Loved this place. It's not the biggest, but the products they have all delivered. The guy working the place was super friendly, cool guy. I got hot sauce, dip mix and BBQ sauce and I just finally finished them all up and I'm very satisfied. They were all delicious but this ghost pepper BBQ sauce is the tits! I wish I could get another bottle more easily! I'm hooked. I don't know if I'll evert get out to Jerome again, but If I do, I'll be here again.

Ghost Pepper Fact: The hottest ghost pepper can be 417 times hotter than the mildest jalapeño. ― pepperscale.com What a fun little store! The staff was super friendly and they even offered us some ghost pepper salsa and chips to sample --- which we really weren't expecting with the pandemic and all. They set out a tray that they kept behind the counter and monitored it closely so there was no contamination whatsoever. I appreciated that they took the pandemic seriously. I was hesitant at first since ghost peppers are so intimidating but I grabbed a little chip, spooned some salsa on, pulled down the mask, popped that chip into my mouth, pulled my mask back up, and chomped away. It was good! The heat was doable and the flavor was tasty. While it wasn't nearly as spicy as I was expecting, it was good. I walked away with a bag of Ass Kickin' Habanero Honey Peanuts and a jar of Jerome Reaper Salsa that I paired with a huge sheet tray of Chrissy Teigen mushroom & crispy shallot nachos later on. I'm glad the ghost pepper was the only ghost I encountered in this haunted mining town!

I just need to come on and rave about how great this company is! My friend has told me to visit Jerome Ghost Pepper co, when we visited Jerome. Unfortunately, we missed them a few minutes after closing. I decided to order some of their salsas online instead, but had a little trouble with the shipping cost changing on me (totally okay, a fluke that happened, no one's fault). But not only were the owners extremely responsive when I ask if the shipping charge was correct, they gave me an extra salsa for my trouble and even refund the shipping altogether! Above and beyond for sure! My package arrived 1 day later and delicious doesn't even begin to explain it! This place is the epitome of customer service done right and I am very thankful! Definitely support this wonderful small business!

Our salsas and hot sauce! Plus some local oil & vinegar from another Jerome business!

Hot sauce selection looked wonderful but didn't get the opportunity to see much. The owner was extremely rude. My son had a beige face mask. He didn't realize he had a mask on, due to his skin tone being the same shade. He shouted to my 8 year old. He kicked us out. He said, your kid needs a mask. Get out! Get out of here! Geez, relax mister. Lay off the hot sauce it's making you a nervous wreck.

By far the best salsas and hot sauces ya"ll! So freaking flavorful yet still very hot. That's always been hard for us to find. My hubby's fav is the Scorpion Pepper. I love the Peach salsa. But honestly everything else we've tried is a close 2nd. Staff was very friendly and informative. Store is super nice and clean. Variety of other products as well. We picked up some bbq sauce I'm trying this weekend. Can't wait!! We will definitely be back soon! Thanks Melinda and Jay for this gem of a store!

My son loves all things hot and spicy so of course we had to stop by. We saw a few things we might be interested and I decided to ask the gentleman working what his favorite salsa was or what was a popular item. He brought out a few more bottles of his ghost pepper salsa because he said it was so popular he had to restock. He advices us he gave samples so we of course had to try! It was delicious. I'm pretty wimpy when it comes to hot stuff, but it was worth every bite. It was hot, but still to a point where I could enjoy it. We left with a jar for home. Cute little photo op area inside as well.

Came here & stopped by Jerome on our way back from Sedona to Phoenix as we were visiting from the midwest. I love spicy food & thought I could purchase something here to bring home. What also caught out attention was the offered free samples. I did not see any free samples when I walked in, unless I was supposed to ask? But if that was the case, it should've been advertised, or someone there could've at least greeted us & let us know. However, we were not greeted at all. They do have a variety of spicy sauces, but I am a little bit of a bargain shopper, so my friend & I decided to look up these sauces online & found most of them for a fraction of the cost, so we opted to not purchase anything. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for supporting local, but not when I feel it is way overpriced & they couldn't even acknowledge their guests.

Bought me some ridiculously hot sauces. Expensive, but hey, it's a storefront that just sells hot sauces and they have some wild stuff.

Photo of R. R.

Let's get right to the point - My wife and I walked into this small shop (hoping for a fun & positive experience). There was a younger patron inside purchasing a few products. He asked the NASTY older punk working behind the counter if the hot sauce was truly hot and this rude disgusting man barked at the patron, "we wouldn't be selling it if it wasn't hot". The young patron didn't know how to respond and then walked out quickly. The tone and inflection of the owner wasn't polite or professional. Within seconds he turned to me and said in an exceptionally rude manner, "pull up your face mask ". My wife and I decided not to give this creature any business and started to walk out. As I was walking out he said "too much for you, you Pussy". I kid you not. I stopped at the door and turned around to say "Don't you ever talk to me in that manner". He then cowered behind the register and said "if you don't leave right now I'm calling the police". Mind you I'm standing outside the business door. My wife was shocked at his response which just came out of the blue. This Cretan is a pure bully. He's gotten away with being rude to people and is not expecting an appropriate response to his unprofessional and rude behavior. Believe me, if ever you see this wretched POS you'll understand where I'm coming from. This individual has numerous other reviews pointing out his rude snide behavior. IMHO, take your business elsewhere.

Photo of Steve M.

This is a wonderful fun shop in a great location. The products are consistently fresh and multiple options to make your tastebuds dance! The heat levels are from mild to amazingly hot. The owners are great. They make you feel like family and are always happy to guide you to a happy purchase. I will be back for sure and getting ready to start my Christmas shopping early. What a great excuse to get back and buy more for me!

Where To Buy Ghost Peppers

Posted on Last updated: 03/28/2023

Ghost peppers are among the spiciest peppers that exist. They once held the title for the hottest pepper, but have since been surpassed. Give their intense heat, ghost peppers can be difficult to find, as not many people are interested in eating them.

If you like it seriously spicy, you may want to know where to buy ghost peppers. Thankfully, us chiliheads have options, both online and locally, for buying fresh or dried ghost peppers. In this article, I’ll share a few reputable places where you can buy ghost peppers.

Ripe Super Bhut Jolokia Pepper

Specialty Grocery Stores

One of the first places to check is your local specialty grocery store. Call any of the small, local markets that may sell unique food items. Here are a few stores that may sell fresh or dried ghost peppers:

  • Whole Foods Market (fresh ghost peppers during summer)
  • Asian supermarkets
  • Any small or local grocery store

Keep in mind that fresh ghost peppers are not always in season . Most grocery stores will have them in stock only during the harvesting season (late summer/early fall). Expect to find fresh ghost peppers in the warmer months when they are more readily available from local farmers.

If you don’t need fresh peppers, dried ghost peppers are much easier to source. I have seen dried ghost peppers for sale in the middle of winter. The dehydrated form of ghost peppers retain all of the heat, and can be rehydrated for use in sauces, or ground into a powder.

One of the easiest ways to get your hands on ghost peppers is to buy them online. You can easily find dried ghost peppers online, year round. If you want fresh peppers, you will likely have to wait until summer when harvesting begins.

Where to buy ghost peppers online:

  • Bohica pepper hut (fresh, seasonal)
  • Amazon (dried, year round)
  • Ghost pepper store (fresh, seasonal)
  • The Spice House (dried, year round)

If you are buying fresh produce online, be sure to check the peppers for mold or rot before consuming. The fresh pods can quickly break down during shipping, especially if the weather is hot or your shipment is delayed.

Dehydrated Ghost Peppers

Dried peppers are a great option, as they will store for a very long time, and can easily be used for many purposes. The flavor and texture changes when the peppers are dried, but rehydrating is quick and easy.

Local Farmer’s Markets

With a bit of searching, you can likely find a farmer’s market or a fair in your area. These (usually) outdoor events bring together local growers and farmers to sell their bounties to the public.

While ghost peppers are not the most popular crop, many farmers have begun growing them in small quantities. In fact, I recently talked with a farm stand owner and he told me his ghost peppers sold out before any other variety!

So, in short, go to farmer’s markets during the summer to see who may be selling ghost peppers. Since ghost peppers take so long to ripen, you are more likely to see them at farm stands later in the summer, or even in early fall.

Grow Your Own Ghost Peppers

If you haven’t considered this yet, I highly recommend growing your own ghost peppers. If you have a sunny location, you can grow a ghost pepper plant that will produce hundreds of peppers in a single year!

Watch ▶ Harvesting 150 ghost peppers from 1 plant .

Red bhut jolokia plant in container with ripe pods

Growing peppers is surprisingly easy and extremely rewarding. The most important thing is to start your seeds at the right time, and have a plan from day one. Learn how to grow ghost peppers from seed here .

We have grown ghost peppers in containers, in the ground, and in raised beds. So, no matter what your situation, chances are that you can grow a healthy, productive plant, too.

Also, when you grow your own, there are many unique, interesting ghost pepper varieties to choose from. From the black panther , to the chocolate bhutlah , to the peach ghost scorpion , the options are endless.

It takes a seasoned spicy food lover to truly enjoy ghost peppers. They are wickedly spicy, but also offer unique flavor and spice to compliment many dishes. I hope this article helps you get your hands on some ghost peppers for whatever reason you might need them!

So, I am wondering if it is possible to end up with a ghost Pepper plant by harvesting seeds from a grocery store jalapeno? The pods coming out on this plant are very clearly not Jalapeno. Some look almost habanero like but are beginning to get longer and others exactly like a ghost Pepper. If it's not that what could it be? I guess I'll find out soon enough 😂

Are Burger King’s New Ghost Pepper Nuggets Even That Spicy?

Here’s what the internet had to say.

ghost pepper restaurant near me

Photo courtesy of Burger King

Burger King has a couple of exciting nuggets of news for two different kinds of chicken nugget lovers: those who avoid meat and those who embrace heat.

Those in the first category will be pleased to hear that, starting on October 11, the fast-food chain will begin testing Impossible Nuggets Made from Plants in select markets nationwide, including Des Moines, Boston and Miami. The plant-based chicken nuggets will be available as an eight-piece order — with a dipping sauce of your choice.

The move makes Burger King the first quick-serve restaurant to test Impossible Foods’ plant-based nuggets, which the company describes as having “the savory taste of a family favorite, with a golden-brown crispy breading on the outside and a tender, juicy bite on the inside.”

ghost pepper restaurant near me

Burger King and Impossible previously teamed up, in 2019, to add a plant-based Impossible patty and Impossible Whopper to BK menus.

“So,” Ellie Doty, chief marketing officer of Burger King North America said in a news release, “it’s only fitting we’re the first global QSR to test the Impossible Nuggets.”

“We’re excited to hear what our guests in the test markets think of this latest innovation,” Doty added.

And for heat-craving nugget lovers who are not averse to meat? Burger King is launching an innovative new menu item for them, too: Ghost Pepper Chicken Nuggets, which will be available nationwide starting on October 11, though only for a limited time.

The white meat breaded chicken nuggets that have been “kicked up with fiery ghost pepper,” are “the perfect balance between flavor and heat,” the fast-food chain boasts.

There has been some skepticism amongst fast-food fans online whether Burger King’s new nuggets will be really, you know, ghost-pepper-level spicy. (Ghost peppers are purported to be the world’s hottest peppers and to merit a very cautious approach, in case you didn’t know.)

“There is a trend in fast food to call everything spicy ghost pepper in order to drum up hype. Does anyone know if this is actually that spicy?” wondered one commenter on reddit.

Advance reviews indicate that Burger King did not, in fact, stint on the heat.

“Ooooh. Whoa. Very spicy,” declared YouTuber Ian K, taking his first bite of the hot new nuggets in a recent video on his Peep This Out channel. “Wow, a little bit of a creeper right there. I wasn’t really getting too much heat but, oh, man … mmm … these are heated.”

“Overall, I think the spice level is actually perfect for a mainstream ghost pepper chicken nugget,” opined Timmy Timato on the YouTube channel Timmy’s Takeout. “It’s not too spicy but it does get the job done. It is spicy.”

Heat seekers can wait until October 11 to try the Ghost Pepper Chicken Nuggets themselves or get early access as a BK Royal Perks member on the BK app. You can currently get an eight-piece order of Ghost Pepper Chicken Nuggets, which comes with two dips of your choice, via the app for $1.49 each, or a four-piece order, with one dip of your choice, for $1.19.

And yeah, they sound like a great way to celebrate Halloween, unless you’re afraid of g-g-ghost peppers.

5 restaurants with incredible views of Moscow

ghost pepper restaurant near me

The restaurant Sixty is located on the 62nd floor of the Federation Tower, one of Moscow's tallest skyscrapers. At 225 meters above the ground, its height is no joke. You can almost touch the clouds during the day or count the stars and lights of the Moscow City skyscrapers at night.

When entering the restaurant, you immediately notice its huge panoramic windows and birch trees (which, unfortunately, are not real). And if you’re not ready to visit this restaurant for the sake of these windows alone then its talented French chef, Regis Trigel, should be more than enough to persuade you.

ghost pepper restaurant near me

One guest named Alexander shared his impressions: "The point of the restaurant is the moment when the windows open, people get up from their seats to stand by the open windows and admire Moscow in the open air. In fact, from the usual procedure of airing the rooms, a whole show is made—that's great! It is said that this is the only place in all Moscow City where the upper parts of the windows are fully opened."

Keep in mind it is best to make a reservation in advance in order to get a table by the window.

International Business Center, Federation Tower, 60th floor,   Presnenskaya emb., 12

White Rabbit

White Rabbit took 23d place in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. That’s already impressive enough, but its view also stands out. White Rabbit is located beneath a glass dome on the 16th floor of Smolenskiy Passage. In the evening, a stunning view of the city is guaranteed, but make sure to reserve well in advance to get a table near the window.

ghost pepper restaurant near me

Vladimir Mukhin, White Rabbit’s chef, makes Russian cuisine in line with the latest trends and using local products. Guests are usually delighted with the Chef's Table—evenings when Mukhin and other chefs from the restaurant present special menus. If you want to taste unusual combinations like borsch with carp or ice cream made from traditional black bread, this place is for you.

Karlsson astonishes visitors with unbelievable views of the Kremlin and Moscow's historical center. The restaurant is especially pleasant in the summer when the veranda is open. The restaurant’s brand chef, Carlo Grecu from Italy, prepares Mediterranean cuisine. Try the risotto with king crab and avocado mousse.

Ovchinnikovskaya Embankment, 20/1, BC "Central City Tower"

Buono restaurant is located on the 29th and 30th floors of the renovated Ukraina Hotel, the new Radisson Royal, which is located in one of Moscow’s seven famous skyscrapers. Most of the seats are lined along panoramic windows on a covered terrace, providing a breathtaking view of the city. Another thing that attracts guests' attention is the wooden pizza oven. As you might have already guessed, Buono’s chef, Christian Lorenzini, specializes in classic Italian cuisine. Try the scallops with fresh spinach, green asparagus, morels and truffle sauce.

ghost pepper restaurant near me

You might also want to visit one more restaurant in the same building—the rather more brutal Mercedes Bar, situated on the 31st floor. In Mercedes Bar, Christian Lorenzini prepares dishes based on the top hits of modern European cuisine.

2/1 Kutuzovsky Ave., Bld. 1, Hotel Radisson Royal

Seventh Heaven Restaurant

This restaurant is located around 330 meters above ground in the Ostankino TV Tower. It was opened in 1967 but closed for reconstruction following a fire in 2000. It finally reopened in 2016.

The restaurant complex covers three floors. In order to get there, you need to buy a ticket to the observation point. Then choose where to eat: in a bistro, cafe or restaurant. The tables stand on a platform that rotates in 40-minute intervals, showing you Moscow from a bird’s-eye view. The different dining options vary in terms of menu, price and interior decoration. Chef Andrey Gurko is guaranteed to complement the views with equally impressive gastronomic adventures.

Russia Michelin Star Revelation

ghost pepper restaurant near me

The long-awaited arrival of the MICHELIN Guide marks a recognition of the rapid development in gastronomic culture in Russia over the past 30 years. The unique history and traditions of the region, formed by the variety of high-quality local products from the Far East, the Altai Republic, the Black Sea and the north-west of Russia, inspire talented chefs to create exquisite culinary masterpieces that cannot be found anywhere else. The first ever Moscow MICHELIN Star ceremony took place tonight, at the Zaryadye Concert Hall, in the heart of the Russian capital. The festive evening, organized with all necessary security measures, was attended by more than 500 guests. “ The MICHELIN Guide and Moscow are sharing a historical moment with the unveiling of the MICHELIN Guide Moscow 2022 selection . Inspectors have been particularly seduced by the high-quality local produce. Russia is a wonderfully wide-ranging expression of nature: from sea coasts to wild forests, from aromatic herbs to first-class seafood… There are lots of discoveries to make ” says Gwendal Poullennec, MICHELIN Guide International Director. “ Moreover, thanks to cultural exchanges throughout history between Russia and Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East, gourmets will experience unforgettable authentic meals full of flavor .”

©Artest - Chef's Table

Restaurants were celebrated through the announcement of the MICHELIN Guide selection, with the reveal of Bib Gourmand (for restaurants offering particularly interesting value for money, where you can enjoy a delicious meal under RUB2000), MICHELIN Stars (for restaurants serving high-quality cuisine), and MICHELIN Green Stars (for restaurants that are pioneering in their sustainable approach). As for all its other selections, the MICHELIN Guide has used the same historical methodology. The team of independent and anonymous inspectors from the Guide has been in the field for its traditional table-tests, during which they evaluate the meal they experience via 5 assessment criteria  :

- The quality of the produce used - The mastery of cooking techniques - The mastery of flavors - The chef’s personality in his/her cuisine - The consistency between visits Thanks to the seriousness and depth of their methodology, inspectors were able to collectively build this first MICHELIN Guide Moscow selection.
