The Baltics restaurant scene continues to evolve through passion and drama

The Baltics restaurant scene continues to evolve through passion and drama
12 Nov 2018

The Top 30 Baltic restaurants of the year were announced tand live today at an event November 12 in Tallinn, Estonia. The list features eight new entries, of which five opened their doors during the year and three made it all the way to the Top 8. In all the Master Level segment expanded from 10 restaurants last year to 16 across Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. On the flipside, three of last year’s Top 30 are no longer in business.

“A conservative gourmand might find the developments in the Baltics somewhat confusing. Far from a smooth road to success, the scene is passionate and dramatic, with great successes and equally public failures, grandiose openings and stunning closedowns. But the golden age certainly continues for adventurous foodies,” states Aivar Hanson, publisher of the guide in the Baltics.
