RIGA CULTURAL AGENDA
RIGA THIS WEEK RECOMMENDS
The Nordic interior—clean lines, raw brick walls, linen
fabrics and wood in combination with metal is an exquisite
background for this contemporary European cuisine
restaurant. Try seasonal highlights, such as asparagus
gel and local delights—goat’s cheese foam or grilled
venison meat in a juniper berry port wine sauce. The
Muusu chef Ainårs Volodka has previously worked in one
of the best restaurants in the world, the famous Noma in
Copenhagen. Time will fly on the Muusu sofas!
This elegant two-storey restaurant’s concept is profound trans-Mediterranean cuisine, using local produce. Main
dishes by Andre (who worked in Michelin restaurants) and
confectionery by a Greek chef. Wine degustations, cooking
master classes, the finest confectionery to order.
Beach Bar & Grill
Being part of the luxorious five star Baltic Beach Hotel, this establishment spreads same values and comfort even closer to the sea. Vast variety of grilled dishes, scrumptious desserts, refreshments and, of course, nice music and a sea-view.
Enjoy your beach holidays at even more rich VIP-lounge Beach Club nearby. A great place for a relaxing day at the beach or a cheerful party with friends. For major celebrations book their Banquet tent (200 m²).
Fair-priced haute cuisine porridges from Jamie Oliver’s
team’s cook Deniss Ivankov, who lately worked as one
of Manchester United’s team chefs. Healthy and ubercreative
all-world porridges in American loft-style interior
with a curious ‘warehouse’ presentation. Also steaks,
pastas, salads, soups. Scrumptious desserts to go with
just the right Nespresso coffee. Also works as official
Nespresso coffee machine and capsule distributor. Beautiful,
little-off-the-tourist-track Old Centre location.
