Finnjävel will run at the Belgravia hotel from 21 March serving a menu created by Finnish chef Tommi Tuominen. The dinner-only menu will feature a range of traditional Nordic dishes, including karelian pie and glassblower’s salmon and blood pancakes.
“Gastronomy has always had a pivotal place in our brand’s personality and we take great pride in offering our guests the very best in dining experiences. Hosting Finnjävel, a Michelin star pop-up restaurant at COMO The Halkin, is a continuation of our commitment to excellence in dining and a perfect fit for our hotel’s reputation for offering unique and exceptional culinary experiences,” says Javier Beneyto, general manager for COMO Metropolitan London and COMO The Halkin.
“We are excited to welcome Finnjävel to our hotel and can’t wait for our guests to experience the delicious flavours of Nordic cuisine.”
Located in Helsinki, Finnjävel was founded by Tuominen and his partners Timo Linnamäki, Henri Alén and Samuil Angelov. Meaning ‘Finnish devil’, it combines fine dining with traditional Finnish cuisine.
“For a long time now, our UK customers have been suggesting that we should bring the Finnjävel experience to London. The pandemic messed up these plans, but this March, we are finally there and Finnjävel pop-up restaurant opens in one of the world’s top restaurant cities and it will be great to see what English foodies think of Finnish food,” say Tuominen and Linnamäki.
“We cannot wait for this collaboration with COMO The Halkin Hotel and staff and to bring a taste of Finland to the UK.”
