Eight years ago casual acquaintance of the owner with one of the best chefs of Latvia caused desire to open in Riga restaurant with the most qualitative, tasty food in the city. The idea was realized and in heart of the old city restaurant 1221 opened. 1221 – is more than a simple number. 1221 was an unusual year when several events took place: this street appeared and became the first street of the Old City, and the house in which there is a restaurant now was built.
We prepare only the best products of the superior quality. It allows the chef to show tastes of products as much as possible. All our dishes generally are author’s developments of our chef. He strongly recommends to try Donald Russell mutton. In our philosophy of our restaurant the fact that we allow to enjoy to the client all palette of taste of our dishes to come back to us again and again is key!
Once our restaurant came incognito Heston Blumenthal, one of the few owners of three stars Michelin restaurant in Great Britain. To tell that we felt was shock and by our surprise did he not only remaine for dinner in our restaurant, but he also was very pleased with our dishes and invited our chef personally to meet him so he could express his gratitude for faultless food…
Many regular customers and celebrities come to our restaurant and we want to work so, that every single visitor have the desire to return!
