Gastronome: Business lunch


By Inese Timuka. 26.03.2009

Hungry for lovely food in the middle of the day? Try Gastronome's new business lunch, available every weekday from 11:00 to 16:00.

Combine a delicious lunch of soup and salad with a pasta or grilled dish, suitable both for meat and seafood lovers, priced at €10.70. From four soups on offer, we opted for Fish Consommé, which proved to be a sumptuous start.

Succeeding that we sampled the Catch of the Day grilled meal, which includes a variety of seafood specially chosen by the chef. For us, the platter included a thick and lightly grilled pilchard, an succulent perch and a saithe fillet.

What we love best about this place is that the emphasis is placed on guaranteeing freshness. The company that owns the restaurant also supplies sea and ocean produce to most of the other restaurants in Riga. But naturally, Gastronome gets its deliveries first, guaranteeing the very freshest in town. The restaurant itself offers a classy yet casual environment. Calm golden and wood tones are offset by attractive lighting, some of which is by table lamplight to make things more intimate.
