A trailblazer in Latvian gastronomical scene, Max Cekot Kitchen is causing a stir among most spoilt Riga’s diners. Located in the industrial crust of the city, in a former woodwork factory, this is the first fine dining restaurant in Riga that offers set-menu alone.
Operating just three evenings a week, pulling up a seat at Max Cekot Kitchen is like attending a theatre performance or an opera show. The sleek restaurant is a mix of wood and metal with a dramatic spiral staircase as its centrepiece. The 9-course tasting menu is dreamed up by the head chef Max Cekot who personally cherry-picks every ingredient to assure that every guest receives the best. The tasting menu changes seasonally, and there is also a vegetarian alternative, additional wine or nonalcoholic drink pairings.
