Specializing in traditional Nordic food with a modern twist, this cheerful restaurant has introduced Finnish tapas to a grateful world. Since it's as close to the city's best shops as it's possible to get, this is where the girls go to kick off their designer shoes and enjoy some sparkling wine, delicious food, and even tastier gossip. The tapas are fun to share, but the squeaky cheese and smoked moose is one you may try to keep all to yourself. There's no shortage of main courses, either: the Lapland flatbread and reindeer hamburger is very tasty. The blueberry pie is a specialty from Peltola Cheese House. Try the kuusenkerkkä —a delicious non-alcoholic sparkling drink made from fresh spruce buds. Reservations are a good idea on Friday and Saturday.
