Fotografiska Tallinn Zero-Waste Kitchen from Former Faviken Chef

After exploring Fotografiska’s frequently rotating photography exhibit, head upstairs to their rooftop restaurant for dinner. Just like at their Stockholm outpost, the philosophy of the kitchen at Fotografiska in Tallinn is zero waste – they use every part of every ingredient and compost any leftovers in their garden. Chef Peeter Pihel is head of the kitchen; he was formerly the sous chef at Faviken under Magnus Nilsson. The menu changes seasonally and lots of the ingredients come from their own garden. We loved the dishes we tried here (the potatoes and chanterelles served with hollandaise was a stand out!), and they have a great wine list with lots of our favorite producers – we even found a bottle of Gut Oggau on the menu. Fotografiska’s rooftop has one of the best views of the Tallinn old town and the urban Telliskivi neighborhood, so even if you don’t go for the full meal, a drink at the bar is highly recommended.
