LuomoLet us bid farewell to Luomo! Until May 11, Luomo can be visited at its current address, but then the doors will be closed.
Vironkatu 8, Helsinki
Open: Tue–Sat 18–24
This is not a funeral. Luomo is mightier than ever before. The restaurant can be seen again in June. At a new address in Kauppatori. And most importantly – it will be considerably bigger, as a bistro will also be opened next to the restaurant.
Peaking in through the kitchen window of restaurant Luomo Vironkatu, one can see Jouni Toivanen and his supporting forces. Those supporting forces speak in several different languages. This is how it has to be, because in this kitchen, they are cooking under the slogan Global&Local.
Only one menu at a time is offered at Luomo. Diners can choose three (€ 55), five (€ 72) or all seven (€ 87) dishes. And appropriate wine packages to go with them are served, priced at € 35, 59 and 79.
Eating at Luomo is simple. Luomo is a small and simple restaurant. Only the star given by Michelin makes it much more important.
The dishes at Luomo are interesting. Often, even the name of the dish fails to reveal much about what will be served on the plate. This dish here is the Japanese sea!
At Luomo, food is prepared by taking it apart and putting it back together. On this plate, we have Quail & Foie. The foie gras or goose liver has been “taken apart” and then “put together” as cold brownish snow.
Xoco & Flowers. Chocolate, rose sorbet and rhubarb mousse.
It can be predicted that Luomo will have a bright future at the new address as well.
