One Michelin star is awarded to the best restaurants in its category, two to where to go, even if you have to deviate from the route, and three get places to go on a gastronomic journey. In Russia, there is not a single restaurant that would have received this award.
Evgeny Chichvarkin, who emigrated to the UK in 2008 because of criminal prosecution, is in the wine business. The Mayfair district runs his shop Hedonism Wines. The restaurant in Piccadilly, he opened in April of this year - with Michelin-based chef Olli Dubu.
Yevgeny Chichvarkin went to the UK, having left the post of chairman of the board of directors of Euroset, in 2008. Two years later, he attempted to start a wine business by registering Vino Merchant Ltd.She failed to survive for two months - in April 2010, the company was liquidated. However, after some time in London appeared Chichvarkin wine boutique. In the press, he was referred to as “a wine shop that does not look like anything,” and included in the selection of the best urban gastronomic attractions.
The boutique museum, where the cost of one bottle of wine sometimes reaches tens of millions of rubles, showed revenue only five years after opening. In 2017, the project made a profit of several hundred thousand pounds, despite the fact that investments were estimated at “eight-digit amount”.
By the way, the long road to success did not lie in the impenetrable darkness - in 2013, Chichvarkin’s “unprofitable boutique” was recognized as the best wine shop in London (according to the results of the Wine Awards from the Decanter industry magazine). The jury praised the diversity of the range, the design of the room and the quality of service - three main points on which the entrepreneur relied.
