WHITE GUIDE BALTIC: Today at an event in Tallinn, Estonia, the names of the White Guide 160 Best Baltic Restaurants were announced
Compared to last year, the number of recommended restaurants has increased in all three countries, from 60 to 160. Estonia, being the smallest of the three Baltic countries, has the largest representation in the guide.
‘When it comes to gastronomy, the Baltic region is going through a very dynamic phase right now,” says Aivar Hanson, publisher of the guide in the Baltics. This development started a bit earlier in Estonia but Latvia and Lithuania are now catching up fast. Restaurants all over the region are now transforming from simply offering food to offering really exciting culinary experiences. In Latvia and Lithuania, these places are emerging as we speak”.
Both of last year’s two best restaurants in the Baltic region evolved further during the year and ended up switching places in the ranking. NOA Chef’s Hall in Tallinn, Estonia takes the top spot this year, while Vincents in Riga, Latvia comes in second. Third place is shared between two newcomers: Nüman in Kaunas, Lithuania, and Alexander Chef’s Table, the Tallinn winter restaurant of the esteemed restaurant Alexander located at Pädaste Manor on Muhu island.
“We have followed the development in the Baltic countries closely for four years now. It’s evolving fast and we keep track of all the developments – and will report them on the website. There is no better time than now to visit Baltic restaurants,’ concludes Hanson.
