In the 1980s started the golden era of growth, when eating out became more common and restaurants’ menus became more diverse. Elite’s menu featured, among other things, salt cured beef and roasted Arctic char, as well as the dessert that wast the hit of the decade, the fruit salad, which crowned the meal with its freshness.
Loyal regular customers visited often and you could bump into Arto Meller or Matti Pellonpää in the restaurant. For many, the restaurant was like a second home – according to the story, Pellonpää’s posts also were addressed to Elite at some point.
Come and experience the three-course nostalgia menu based on the favorite dishes of the time, which is offered at the restaurant during August 2022 (3.-31.8.2022).
