I don't know any restaurant, I would rather tell about local food.
Favorite Dish: The most famous local food is red caviar. Being delicacy in European Russia, it is quite common in Magadan region. 'Red fish' go up from the sea to the small rivers in July-September. 'Red fish' is the name of different species of local salmon. The meat of it is really red and deliciuos.
You can find here Kamchatkan crab with the body (only the body) of 30 sm in diameter. The taste is as great as the size.

Well, that week the Rotary Club was having a dinner party and I was asked to sing for the guest. What an experience, the very rich were there, of course Magadan is very poor in comparison to a lot of Russian Satellites. I had never witness so much toasting and drinking in all of my life. There were more toastings to the American Singer, one with the Champange, one with the Beer, one with the vodka,and one for or with the wine. By that time every one except the cooks, my interpreter,a few women,and the singer(myself) were not toasted.
Dress Code: Well for this particular event, people were dressed in suits and ties,some were dressed in black tie, the women were well dressed in silks,and satins,and wonderful jewelry.

Plane to the Socol(=falcon) airport. And it is THE ONLY way to reach Magadan with regular transport.
One can try to go by car from Yakutsk (couple of thousands kilometers) or with cargo ship from Vladivostok (even farer).
There are regular planes from Moscow - I used only this route. Some other Russian cities are also connected by airlines with Magadan Now there is also plane from Anchorage, Alaska.
Airport is 56km from the town. You can go from airport by regular bus. Buses are also the only public transportation. Most of the town you can explore by walking, it is not very big.

While its a wonderful outing and an honor to be invited to the 'banya' or the Russian version of the Turkish bath - usually a private building attached to a home, its important to pace yourself as they give shots of homebrew vodka as you alternate between the hot steam room and the cool down room. Else, you will be vomiting up those crab cakes and pickles quicker than you can say Prost. Don't be shy, ask for water so you can attempt to stay hydrated.
