RIGA CULTURAL AGENDA
RIGA THIS WEEK RECOMMENDS
After enjoying the vast Riga Bourse museum collection,
enjoy a filling meal in the Bourse Restaurant—it offers 20%
discount to the museum visitors upon showing your entry
ticket). Wonderful Dome Square location, fast and attentive
service, romantic floral interior. Go through their European/
Italian not long, but essential seasonal menu by skilful
chef Vitaly Korennik, with honest, satisfactory portions.
We especially loved their salmon fillet under honey-ginger
sauce and roasted vegetables. Also offers fish or meat set
daytime menu 12.00-18.00. Long wine and cocktail list.
Marvellous Dome square summer terrace.
Chocolate lovers’ paradise! Chocolatiers make beautiful
confectionary right before your eyes! We especially
recommend ‘Marc de Champagne’ truffles made with
cranberries soaked in grape grappa! Also sells cakes,
muffins, macaroons and salty quiche pies. Nice idea for
a souvenir from Latvia. Saturday/Sunday brunch with
a glass of wine 11.00-16.00, € 9 per person. Special
events and group orders for chocolate master classes.
Phenomenal, uber-comfortable local wool shoes of exceptional
design and fully local concept now has grown into
their own first shop/show-room/cafeteria. Choose among
numerous colours and funkiest footwear designs for men
and women and make your friends green with envy! Local
bohemia, businessmen and even fashion queen Vivienne
Westwood are already among Woolings fans. Also sells five
more local brands (clothes, accessories, decor and interior
items, art pieces). Coffee and small pastries at the spot
and takeaway, occasional movie screenings and parties!
Located in the famous loft complex party quarter near
Piens club, 9k 1 Nams club, Deli Snack a.o. The first
brewery/bar in Riga. Perfect handmade eco design, eight
beer styles on draught and takeaway. Follow the process of beer art and ask technological questions from the bartender/
owner/beer cook. The first local brewery producing
Belgian and American IPA style beers. Our favourite
IPA style beer is 3 Indiani.

The restaurant is indeed a grand Italian cuisine celebration
in Riga! Casual, homey, easy ristorante with a fireplace
and lovely central location revealing true, perfectly
balanced gastronomy. The accuracy of authentic traditionals
from all main Italian regions is assured by famed
chef Massimiliano Montiroli, who has opened one of the
first Italian restaurants in Moscow, adored by the usually
very fastidious, Italian embassy delegations. Massimo
guarantees the same taste and heartiness as if the food
is prepared by caring and experienced hands of an Italian
grandma. Pasta, ravioli, risotto, seafood and meat grill,
pizza and surely scrumptious dolces all simply outstanding!
