In The Shadow Of Metekhi
12:00 – 00:00
The restaurant In the Shadow of Metekhi was founded in 2005 and since then is a favorite place for visitors. The interior of the restaurant is built on the old Tiflis con
cept and almost exactly repeats Otar Mamporia’s scenery in the theatrical performance “In the Shadow of Metekhi”.
The restaurant is located in the old part of Tbilisi, offering cozy ambience along with wonders of local cuisine. The visitors are welcome to enjoy Georgian national songs and dances on a daily basis. From the beautiful terrace one can enjoy the mesmerizing view of the Mtkvari River and the ancient part of Tbilisi.
The guests of the restaurant have the opportunity to taste the “Treasure of the Georgian Feast” dishes. This is m|group’s project launched in 2010, which involved searching for indigenous Georgian meals, recipes and rules of preparation, in order to save them from oblivion and to preserve these traditions for the future generations. As the result of conducted search expeditions, up to 150 rules of preparation of traditional Georgian meals, the recipes of which were preserved among the elders of the regions, were restored, while guests can taste up to 30 of those dishes only in our chain of restaurants.
Another interesting project is – the “Fusion” menu, where the main ingredients are Georgian, but presented with the European preparation technique, which makes dishes piquant and of totally different taste.
There are 3 individual thematic rooms of different concepts in the restaurant, which represent the different parts of ancient Georgia: “Monadire” (hunter) – limestone built interior, stone fireplace, historic wine vessels and other details create ancient Georgian mood for the visitors; “Old Tbilisi” – interior of the XIX-XX century Tbilisi and “Kasabi” (butcher) rooms are for guests with any taste and interest.
In the Shadow of Metekhi is the only restaurant in Georgia with the HACCP Concept Certificate and the ISO Certificate 22000:2005.
