A short distance from the town center, Elite makes a welcome place to recharge after visiting the Temppeliaukio Kirkko and the Sibelius monument—especially in summer, when there's outdoor seating. Its simple art-deco interior and spacious layout are popular with artists and writers. Traditional Finnish dishes to sample are fried Baltic herring, salmon soup with rye bread, and select game. If you want more international dishes, try the grilled king prawn tails with Parmesan
risotto and lime sauce or the grilled liver Anglaise and mashed potatoes with butter and parsley.
