Izba

Verkhnaya Maslovka, 18 Google map
This folk style building (Izba) was constructed in 1906 and at a moment is a restaurant with Russian style interiors and cuisine. I have not been inside, so I attach few colorful photos ( Photo 1Photo 2) from the site Website in Russian.
Next door to the restaurant there is an Russian folk art  shop and the centre of ceramic handicraft, which consults, provides equipment for pottery and has the ceramics production of its own.
The building looks a bit archaic in the surroundings, but it catches the eye for sure. How could the wooden house stay alive for more then 100 years of Moscow life is a mistery to me.
The entrance to the handicraft centre is very special (click to enlarge):
