Great wine list, inventive menu
It’s all class, all the time at this establishment. Bordoo (phonetic for Bordeaux, naturellement!) can be found in Tallinn’s The Three Sisters Hotel, indisputably the city’s most exclusive lodgings, a Relais & Châteaux property frequented by globetrotting bon vivants. It encompasses a trio of merchants houses from 1362 that were refurbished and fashioned into a design hotel, merging the contemporary with the ancient, and featuring a decadent dining room splashed out in a dramatic red and black color scheme; red representing Bordeaux wine, bien sûr, The restaurant is known for its impressive wine cellar. And as Coravin enables pouring wines from the most valuable bottles without removing their corks, these treasures are being consumed like cake at a kids’ party. The place is full of contrasts, from the interiors to the food- and beverage selections. Make no mistake though, this isn’t a coincidence. The staff is young, the drinks are stiff; new, hip cocktails are offered alongside prestigious, pedigree beverages. The cuisine is imaginative and utilizes the latest culinary techniques. Bordoo’s general goal is simple: be the best of the best, an objective that has been reached with varying degrees of success, until now, when the kitchen is doing better than ever. Despite his young age, Chef Pavel Gurjanov is already a veteran of culinary competitions, his trophy cabinet is mighty impressive. He’s particularly skilled at putting his experiences from the competitions into practice when crafting new dishes, the latest menu contains several we would definitely recommend. The problem here is that Gurjanov is so creative, his menu changes so frequently that making recommendations would be futile. Hence our recommendation is simply to pay Bordoo a visit, preferably several, only then will you really learn to understand and appreciate this class act...
