    Try to read upon the Chef’s Floor of the Mon Repos Restaurant. You will be surprised.Not much information is available beyond the bare bones. Can a hushed up restaurant in our era of information overload even be good? As it turns out, it sure can. The Chef’s Floor is the domain of one of the best contemporary Estonian chefs Vladislav Djatšuk. Not one for idle chatter, he works his kitchen with a passion. This, in turn, attracts customers. And itseems like they, like the chef, are not much for gossip, because despite the lack of talk, there is no shortage of customers. The Chef’s Floor offers a choice between a four-course and a six-course tasting menu. The food is characteristically nostalgic (or melancholic?) and modern at once. Both menus begin with wild salmon. This is the dish that won Vladislav Djatžuk the seventh place at Bocuse d’Or Europe Stavanger ten years ago. The fish, very lightly cooked, is served under a smoky cloche. When the server raises the cover, the mouth-watering smoky aroma foreshadows the flavor of the fish. The fine dining at Mon Repos is created with cutting-edge techniques as a fruit of long labor. The dishes are probably too complex for a regular eater to describe the experience in words. The drinks selection consists of sound, safe choices. The pairings are correctly done,but the wines themselves might be described as a touch too simple for the masterful dishes. The hundred-year-old villa has been expertly renovated for the restaurant. The Kadriorg Park immediately behind itis the biggest and most gorgeous parkin Tallinn. Everything comes together here for a good time. What else is there to say?

THE GLOBAL GASTRONOMY AWARDS 2018

With Enrique Olvera as its 2017 laureate, the Global Gastronomy Awards were presented at his Mexico City restaurant Pujol on September 23rd, 2018. For ten consecutive years the awards ceremony was hosted in Stockholm, last year, however, it became a movable feast and relay race, traveling to the home turf of the previous year’s winner. The first global stop was New York where 2016 awardee Dan Barber handed over the baton to Enrique Olvera. Chef Olvera in turn passed it on to David Thompson, making Bangkok the next destination.
