Three Chefs has a second name, which is probably the longest restaurant moniker in Latvia: Tam labam būs augt, meaning “The good must grow”––it says everything about the place. The three toques who run the kitchen, Mārtiņš Sirmais, Ēriks Dreibants and Artūrs Trinkuns, aim to provide “more goodness” and have become legendary over the years for their delicious ambitions. Their names are synonymous with Latvian cuisine and they’re frequently featured on television, in media, as well as in culinary competitions outside the country. Guests are always welcomed with bread presented on white parchment paper that is decorated with liquid spreads, artfully painted in seasonal colors, with contemporary flair and a very temporary nature––those tasty dips will not stay long on that paper. The menu may be confusing for first time visitors. Don’t worry, it’s purposely that way. Chef Dreibants claims he “wants to pile the whole world on every plate, but only so that the main characteristic of each ingredient is prominent”. Hence, you can enjoy dishes like cod filet, pearl barley, red king crab and citrus or Iberico pork, braised cabbage, leek and, Brussels sprouts with a mustard demi-glace sauce. And once you leave this eatery you’ll really understand the meaning of that convoluted, complicated name; the good really does grow here...
