I am looking forward to Finnjävel. My problem is that most restaurants are closed on Mondays (Spis, Demo, etc) and that’s the slot I need to fill! Any recs?

True, many good rests are closed on Mondays. Sunn is open on Mondays and if more relaxed place is ok, the Cock. All island restaurants are worth to try, NJK, Boathouse and Saari especially.

Kiitos! When I travel I really want to eat the essence of the local cuisine and ingredients, which is why I took your Finnjävel suggestion. I wanted to do Spis but closed Monday…

Seems Sunn is open Mondays only for lunch…

Will be in Helsinki for a quick trip in June. Which of these would you recommend most? Or even, anything new that’s really grabbing your attention? Kiitos!

All 4 Michelin restaurants are worth to visit. Depending what would you like eat, there are also Bib Gourmand restaurants Farang and Gaijin with serve asian food and are most trendy. Just opened Finnjävel serving Finnish food might be interesting, owners are from Demo and Muru. BTW, Taste of Helsinki is 16.-19.6. here. Restaurants will be published today 15.4. Lunch and dinner, if you know the concept.

Kiitos! I had not seen anything on Finnjävel before, sounds fascinating! Of the Michelin places I take it you like Demo the most? Sadly I will be there just before Taste of Helsinki, and it’s quite a short trip (2 days)…

Then there is one of the smallest restaurants in Helsinki, Spis, which have been chosen as restaurant of the year couple of times. Nordic cuisine, only tasting menus available. One of my favourites.

Oh excellent, thank you! I’m not hung up on Michelin stars (frankly I tend to avoid anything over 1 star), and rather have creative local cooking! Kiitos!
