Lithuania. Emotions On A Plate
Here in Lithuania we believe that food is a common language shared by all people around the world. This is a tongue that needs no translation and helps us understand each other more perfectly — as we soak up the positive emotions elicited universally by good food.
For a long time we preferred to speak about our traditional black rye bread, fresh honey from the planet's happiest bees, our cake with horns straight from the fire, local beer with its unique yeast DNA, acknowledged by Canadian scientists and others for the way it continues to ferment even as you drink it in the glass. Today we still relish tradition, but we also invite our foreign visitors, including a growing number of foodies from abroad, as well as the locals, not to just eat, but to also savor distinctive fare in breathtaking environments including midair.
In a hot air balloon.
Yes, that’s right. 'Sky-lifting' is not only an apt metaphor. It's also literally true. Whether it's winter or summer, you can enjoy dinner made by a professional chef — soaring with you in a hot air balloon above Vilnius’s Old Town or aloft over Trakai’s many lakes.
In a field of rye.
Or, invite your family to dinner in the middle of an expansive rye field! Not your typical picnic, but a sit-down experience (complete with table settings and chairs), featuring a variety of hot dishes served in the open air. Even the fanciest restaurants cannot match the sense of freedom you’ll feel, touched by gentle breezes and the aroma of freshly baked bread, whispering quiet secrets of life.

In a movie theater.
Are popcorn and coke the usual foods you associate with sitting in the cinema? We’re ready to expand your mind in a novel culinary theater new to Vilnius and, it seems, most of the world. With just 26 seats at maximum capacity, there’s plenty of space for your legs and, most important, individual tables by each comfortable seat. So you’ll appreciate a true meal, selected from restaurants in the adjacent hall, while watching the show in this exclusive setting.
