Demo

Demo, seating only 45 diners, is among the most sought after addresses on Helsinki restaurant scene. Opened in 2003, it attained its first Michelin star already 4 years later, in 2007. In a way, Demo has inspired upswing of Finnish modern cuisine over the recent years that has ranked Helsinki among the gourmet destinations of the globe. Demo is owned by two local star chefs, Teemu Aura and Tommi Tuominen. They both have developed the idea of the restaurant entirely on their own, proving that the ingredients for success are still the same - a great vision, talent and hard work. Asked about the name of the restaurant, the owners says that the choice fell on the word "demo" as used in music business, denoting a sample recording that shows the highlights of one's creative talents. The restaurant fuses the traditional Finnish culinary values (fine quality and fresh domestic seasonal products), and the principles of French cuisine, achieving therefore a true taste adventure without loosing typical national traits. An attractive touch to a dinner at Demo is that almost every night you'd meet the owners themselves. Demo is not the only project of Teemu and Tommi. They have participated in opening of a Scandinavian restaurant F.I.N.D.S (Finland, Island, Norway, Denmark) in Hong Kong, and in 2007 have opened Grotesk restaurant in Helsinki. It features Demo- style menu for more democratic prices, and an urban lounge ambiance.
