Grotesk

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Grotesk

The owners of Grotesk are the well-known Finnish chefs Teemu Aura and Tommi Tuominen, who have acquired a brand-like status on the city restaurant scene. Their Michelin-stared restaurant Demo, opened in 2003, set off a leap in Helsinki gastronomy. Grotesk, therefore, seems a logical follower of this trait - it offers fine, Demo-style food for friendlier prices, and in a more laid-back ambiance. Sited in a building that once housed the Helsinki daily newspaper Sanomat, it differs from Demo with its impressive premises. The urban style lounge features contrasting palette of black and red, wooden tables with leather inlays, red lamps, an open-plan kitchen and an outdoor terrace. Waitresses are clad in floral-pattern dresses, and the whole place oozes somewhat showy, stage-like air, while the modern Finnish fare presents a true adventure for your taste buds. Every ingredient is fresh and in season, and complements one another, making a meal that is substantial, yet light. For example, marinated king prawn tails and cucumber salad with yogurt sauce (14 Euro), supplemented with radish and lettuce. Or three pike rolls with tomato and shrimp vinaigrette, fresh fennel and oranges (14.50 Euro). Wine, as elsewhere in Helsinki, starts from 32 Euro per bottle.

Dinner for two will average 100 Euro.
