American Moscow

­Where is the best steakhouse in Moscow? On this week’s Moscow Out show, Martyn Andrews looks at everything “American” in Moscow. From lavish 1960’s-style diners and American art to the obsession behind McDonald’s and Hollywood films. As a sign of capitalist freedom, Russia still thrives on US brands and lifestyles. Our host discovers that many things in modern-day Moscow, from fashion and music to Starbucks coffee and social behavior is heavily influenced by such Western standards. It seems the American dream is closer than we think.
