Asian seafood restaurant Market has announced two new special promotions. The first concerns the classic combination -- oysters and wine. Until December, five varieties of fresh oysters are being served, ranging in price from 220 rubles for Claire No. 1 up to 550 rubles for king Japanese. Accompanying the oysters is a specially selected Bourgeois wine list (2,900-9,700 rubles). The second promotion offers a new selection of Cantonese dishes. Among the new Chinese dishes are marinated vegetable salad with grill-fried eel (1,150 rubles), wok-fried salmon and vegetables in chili sauce Cantonese-style (680 rubles), and the perhaps slightly adapted fried balls of prawn, calamari and foie-gras with spinach (480 rubles). The new Cantonese menu is available until spring.

The virtual-reality bar and restaurant Versia 1.0 has had an autumn upgrade, becoming Versia 1.5. A new room has been added and the interior design has been tweaked -- but don't worry, the virtual-reality hall is still functioning.
