The chefs of as many as eight restaurants in Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda woke up as part of the Baltic cream of the crop following the reputable Scandinavian White Guide 2018 evaluations of restaurants that happened for the second time now in our country. Eight from fifteen restaurants evaluated in Lithuania made it to the Baltic top 30 restaurants, with Nüman in Kaunas reaching the third place, a press release from the State Department of Tourism states.

Uoks ranked 30th, Džiaugsmas (Joy) – 20th, Monai (Tricks) – 15th, Telegrafas (Telegraph) – 11th, Monte Pacis – 10th, Gastronomika (Gastronomy) – 8th, and Sweet Root – 7th.

"When the White Guide was brought to Lithuania last year, in cooperation with Kaunas IN and GO Vilnius, their well-established and reputable experts showed some surprise as regards the quality and character of our restaurants. White Guide rankings, known otherwise as Scandinavian Michelins, are very much sought after, and thus very much appreciated by our restaurants and the country itself to that matter. Actually, the restaurant boom has not subsided as yet. And the gastronomic tourism may well promote Lithuania as a tourism destination, while serving as one of its major attractions", says Indrė Trakimaitė-Šeškuvienė, Acting Head of the State Department of Tourism.

A White Guide 2018 website with the list of all restaurants ranked was presented in Tallinn on 29 November. This year's evaluation covered 15 Lithuanian restaurants (10 last year) (by number of points granted): Nüman (Kaunas), Sweet Root (Vilnius), Gastronomika (Vilnius), Monte Pacis (Kaunas), Telegrafas (Vilnius), Monai (Klaipėda), Džiaugsmas (Vilnius), Uoksas (Kaunas), SOMM (Vilnius), Dublis (Vilnius), Gaspar's (Vilnius), Amandus (Vilnius), Buceris (Vilnius), Lauro Lapas (Vilnius) and Šturmų švyturys (Vilnius ir Ventės Ragas).
