The perfectionist chef Uvis Janicenko, honed his skills in numerous Japanese, Spanish, Swedish and Danish Michelin-starred establishments. Fortunately he is back to his home-city to bring East-meets-West casual dining concept to us. Rūme (Old Latvian 'room', 'space') is a space for everyone, meaning the price for the satisfactory meal start at €7. Slick, whip-smart geometrical, eco-loft premisses share the two concepts: by the day (12.00-16.00) they serve a delicious ramen (shio and miso kinds are more traditional, yuzu is author's twist). Made on the super-secret original Japanese base, using local, seasonal ingredients and homemade noodles. In the evening (from 18.00) ramen space turns into an author's cocktail bar/lounge and the second, more opulent and quiet room, to the right from the bar– for the steaks. The cuts are brought from #5 best steak supplier in the world Bodega el Capricho and selected US suppliers. Also canny fish and vegetarian options. Destined to become a legend!
