A five-minute walk from the stunning neoclassical Parliament Building and on the same street as the National Museum stands this restaurant, the sort of place that locals have kept secret for too long. The main courses have a pan-European flavor, but the "classics"—the sort of hearty food that grandma used to make— are what this place is about. Seasonal game is popular in the colder months; in summer the menu lightens to include quality salads and fish. But whenever you come, you're in for good-quality, wholesome Finnish food at its best. Honey-roasted parsnip soup is an excellent starter. The pan-fried calf's liver with crispy bacon, mashed potato, and red wine sauce is very good, too. Reservations are a good ideas on weekends, and on Tuesdays and Thursday, when KuuKuu fills with with theatergoers.
