Ravintola Elite 90 vuotta - 40-luvun nostalgiamenu


Elite offers a glimpse into restaurant life in the 1950s. After the war, people longed for entertainment and visits to restaurants became more common. Families gathered at Elite to enjoy a long Sunday lunch and that’s when the tables were full of delicacies. One of my favorite servings was pike perch à la Mannerheim – a classic that is said to be one of Marshal Mannerheim’s favorite servings; fried pike perch served with horseradish butter and mushroom sauce. Come experience the three-course nostalgia menu based on the favorite dishes of the time, which will be available in the restaurant until the end of May 2022.
