Lithuania Calling – 4 Vilnius-Based Restaurants Awarded Michelin Star in Latest Awards

Lithuania’s thriving culinary scene stepped into the spotlight as four top Vilnius restaurants were each awarded One MICHELIN star. It was a major success for the city’s food scene as Nineteen18Dziaugsmas, Demo and Pas mus were all issued with the much-coveted accolade.

The MICHELIN stars are internationally recognised hallmarks of culinary excellence and all four Vilnius restaurants met the outstanding cooking criteria –  quality of the ingredients, the harmony of flavours, the mastery of techniques, the personality of the chef as expressed through their cuisine, and consistency both across the entire menu and over time.

Three other restaurants in Vilnius were also recognised by the prestigious guide.

14 HorsesLe Travi, and Gaspar’s were acknowledged in The Bib Gourmand Award which distinguishes restaurants that offer refined cuisine at an affordable price.

Valdas Benkunskas, Vilnius City Mayor said:“The gastronomic sector of the capital perfectly reflects Vilnius itself – it unites different cultures, is open and inviting to discover. The fact that the name of Vilnius is featured in the prestigious list will be an incentive for both us and guests from abroad to learn more about food traditions and culture, will spread the word about our talented chefs and will allow the gastronomic sector in the capital to flourish even more.”
