LEIB
Uus 31, Tallinn
www.leibresto.ee
Leib Resto & Aed is a pretentious name. Leib – bread – is the symbol of food for Estonians, and with this name one can either succeed or fail completely. There are no other options.
Leib has chosen to succeed. It has been crowded every day since its opening day, no matter what time of day or season. The food is made of local and always seasonal ingredients. Its cooperation with farmers is something others can learn from. Matching food with drinks is in a class of its own. One of the owners of Leib, Kristjan Peäske, is the uncontested premier sommelier in Estonia.

MOON
Võrgu 3, Tallinn
www.kohvikmoon.ee
Quite an unusual name for a restaurant… Even more unexpected is the location – mentally very far from fancy Old Town, at the same time so close to the sea and very much in the centre.
Now already a few years ago head chefs Roman and Igor decided to quit their careers pursuing high end gastronomy goals and to go back to their culinary roots. Thus Moon was born.
The concept of the restaurant is to be as normal and down to earth as possible, sometimes it seems that it might be a bigger challenge than making gourmet food, as both of the chefs and their colleague Jana, who is in charge of the wine list, have city backgrounds and simple products demand much more attention to be able to shine. Simple, honest, sincere, respectful, local, sustainable, Nordic - these are our food mantras we want to convey to you on the plates at the hidden corner of wooden Kalamaja suburb.
Opening hours:
I-VI: 12:00-23:00
VII: 13:00-21:00
Tel.: + 372 6 314 575
E-mail: kohvik@kohvikmoon.ee
Average price of a main course: 12,50 euro

 

NEH
Lootsi 4, Tallinn
www.neh.ee
Neh is Pädaste Manor seasonal kitchen in the city. A bistro style foodie heaven that invites to meet Estonia’s best culinary team whose’ true home is at Pädaste Manor on Muhu Island. You might call Neh our city retreat…
In this city sanctuary we continue to pay respect to Nordic Islands’ Cuisine, authenticity of produce and flavours of the season. Neh might be just a touch less sophisticated than our Alexander Restaurant at Pädaste – and the style is casual rather than fine dining – but at Neh they say that the closeness and warmth fits the city.
Neh is home for foodies. Good taste is a requisite, yet prices are modest.
