The plates were nearly snatched out of our hands by our EU guests
Viewrestaurant Tuikku, which is on the top of Levi, introduced Moneralís cocktailplates with most valuable way. Plates were used in cocktailparty in EU ministry-congress at the beginning of october.
- The plates were nearly snatched out of our hands by our EU guests. Apparently we have to provide more plates, because many of the guests wanted to take the plate as a gift with them and we didnít have the heart to say no, tells Hille Kuusisto owner of the restaurant.
She told that they provide Moneralís plates, because they wanted to offer foreign honour guests finnish exotic and wooden plates suited to restaurants milieu.
Besides our idea is to offer our guest experiences and these plates suit for that purpose excellently.
In the future they will use plates in Tuikkuís outdoor and cocktail occasions.
Idea is to make an menu around the plates.
