Locale

Locale means ‘local’. There is a profound and well-thought-out philosophy behind the name. The Locale Restaurant uses the most perfect of Latvian nature’s offerings, the earliest of local greenhouse produce and the best of local farm-grown products.

Chef Andrea Bressan has created a version of the Latvian kitchen which, while steeped in tradition, would be capable of pleasing people from anywhere in the world. It is a synergy of Latvian produce and Mediterranean cuisine. It is well worth to follow the menu of the Locale Restaurant closely: designed as genuinely seasonal, it is as constantly changing as nature itself. The particular flavour that strikes you today will soon be replaced by a fresh gastronomic adventure. Seasonality is the acme of self-expression by the ingredients where even the most commonplace of products are able to reveal themselves in a special way. It is a well-known truth that ultimate simplicity leads to perfection. Still, it always makes you wonder: how is it possible for something so ordinary to possess such a depth of flavour? The principle of seasonality also applies to the restaurant’s cocktail menu; alongside the time-tested classics, it features original cocktails and ‘home-made’ soft drinks based on local fruits, berries, plants and natural syrups.
