Finnish 'Pop-Down' Restaurant Is 262 Feet Underground - Eater National (blog)

Finnish 'Pop-Down' Restaurant Is 262 Feet Underground - Eater National (blog) | Finland | Scoop.it

Muru Pops Down, a project that's part of World Design Capital Helsinki 2012, is a pop-up restaurant that literally takes place underground: 262 feet underground, to be exact. Running for two weeks between September 10 and 24, Muru Pops Down is an offshoot of Helsinki restaurant Muru.

The dinner takes place in the Tytyri Mine Museum, and diners are given helmets to wear as they navigate the mines to the restaurant. (They don't have to wear the helmets while they eat, though.) The dinner costs €128 (US$161) and includes transportation to and from Helsinki to the event, dinner, drinks, and museum admission. Alas, would be gastronomic spelunkers, it's sold out.

The Blog About Nothing... in London!: Fine Dining in Helsinki

The Blog About Nothing... in London!: Fine Dining in Helsinki | Finland | Scoop.it

I couldn’t resist going to Helsinki’s two starred Michelin restaurant Chez Dominique and try Hans Välimäki creations. During the last six years Chez Dominique has been in the top 50 recommendation from the UK magazine Restaurant. The chef offers a fusion between Nordic and French cuisines, and the more exiting for adrenaline junkies is their mystery menu where you go blind being led by Välimäki.

What a Healthy Family Eats: Back from Helsinki, Finland!

What a Healthy Family Eats: Back from Helsinki, Finland! | Finland | Scoop.it
I really focused on finding all the great places to eat healthy Vegan food! In the next round of posts I'll be showing you all the great places I found during my 10 day stay in beautiful Helsinki.

If I had to rate the city on it's ease of eating a Vegan diet, I would give it a high rating. I think an 8 out of 10 is fair. There are plenty of outdoor and indoor markets that have produce and other vegan food products. There are several health food stores and at least one health food chain. There are many ethnic restaurants that have vegan and vegetarian offerings on their menu.

Pop supping - Experimental nature of pop-up restaurants

Pop supping - Experimental nature of pop-up restaurants | Finland | Scoop.it

Besides gearing up for World Design Capital 2012, Helsinki is undergoing a food revolution enabled by the temporary, experimental nature of pop-up restaurants.

 

“I don’t know what’s going on,” says Ville Relander, project manager for the City of Helsinki and responsible for the Finnish capital’s food culture strategy. “ ...somehow people started to create their own city. ‘Restaurant Day’ is part of this new spirit.”

Relander is referring to the latest pop-up restaurant craze to hit Helsinki, which is gearing up towards its title as World Design Capital 2012, an award bestowed every two years by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design.

On Restaurant Day, anyone can open a restaurant for 24 hours. About 200 temporary venues were created during the August event. And in November, the World Design Capital crew will host a one-day cake restaurant in the city.

Restaurant Boathouse HSS Helsinki - Island Restaurant - Weddings - Palace Kämp

Restaurant Boathouse HSS Helsinki - Island Restaurant - Weddings - Palace Kämp | Finland | Scoop.it
Modern, international, and friendly island restaurant in Helsinki

Casual and relaxed. Stylish and fun. Those would most likely be the words used to describe restaurant Boathouse HSS, if it was situated in, for instance, Martha's Vineyards, Massachusetts. The island restaurant’s relaxed atmosphere, delicious menu, and the wooden racing yachts docked at the pier easily bring to mind the traditional yacht clubs of East Coast USA. When you are at the restaurant Boathouse HSS, you feel like you are in the outer archipelago but, in fact, you are in an island restaurant in Helsinki only a few minutes from the coast.
