It is probably possible to register at Berezhkovskaya first but I think it's actually easiest to register first at Big GARF because you can use the same propusk for both places.

As for lunch options, the area around there is pretty barren, although I was once told that you can get a propusk to get into the patent office's cafeteria, which is a few doors down.
