Episode number 20 takes place in Vinkkeli, which is run by former talent from Savoy - and it shows - this fine dining cuisine with Nordic inspiration delivers great value at position 6 of top 50.
I was joined to this dinner by Esa Nettamo, the managing director and chief design officer at Digitalist, the brand-design-development agency that has been renewing itself during the past few years with great leaps. Talking with Esa is always enjoyable and this dinner was no exception.
During the dinner we covered our mutual favourite topics like remote work, design and innovation as well as transformation to create digital services to replace physical ones.
Vinkkeli provides an amazing dinner. Being put on top 10 position and the recommendations I've heard for Vinkkeli left me expecting for more personally, but I do have to say that the food was really really good.
We enjoyed the tasting menu of 4 courses, which took us from mushroom soup to duck parfait salad and then onwards to tasty meat delicacy finally topped with desert to die for.
This is an awesome venue for anyone taking a special someone out, whether for business or pleasure. Dining room is intimate and suitable for couples and small groups.
