Very Pink Birthday dinner at Sketch Gallery

This year we decided to celebrate Riz’s birthday over a celebratory dinner at Sketch Gallery, and we were joined by our friend Viktoria who was visiting from Helsinki, Finland.

The restaurant is a chic and hip contemporary brasserie, the atmosphere was charming, service was excellent and the food delicious. They also made Riz, on request, a little cake for his birthday which was a really nice touch and helped make the evening even more special.

One of most exciting features of this restaurant for me were the striking and playful interiors – the dusky pink walls filled with David Shirley’s artwork, the bourgeois style furniture, and the eclectic feeling of the room.

Tänä vuonna päätimme juhlia Rizon syntymäpäivää hyvän illallisen merkeissä Sketch Galleriassa, ja seuraamme liittyi ystävämme Viktoria Helsingistä.

Ravintola on tyylikäs ja trendikäs brasserie, jonka ilmapiiri oli hurmaava, palvelu erinomaista ja kaikki tilaamme annokset olivat herkullisia. The restaurant is a chic and hip contemporary brasserie, the atmosphere was charming, service was excellent and the food delicious. Ravintola teki myös tilauksesta pienen syntymäpäivä kakun Rizolle, joka oli mukava ele ja teki päivänsankarin erittäin onnelliseksi.

 Toinen illan erityinen osuus oli gallerian näyttävä ja leikkisä sisustus – upeat tummanvaaleanpunaiset seinät, joita täyttävät David Shirley modernit taideteokset, porvarillisen tyylin huonekalut, ja tilan eklektinen tunnelma.

We had a wonderful evening, the only one grumpy was the butter 🙂

Meillä oli aivan ihana ilta, ainoa joka ei paljon hymyillyt oli voinappi 🙂

Oh and one more thing.. the bathrooms are egg-cellent! Like a futuristic collection of dinosaur eggs in neon lights.

Ainiin, vielä yksi asia… Ravintolan WC on aivan uskomaton! Kuin futuristinen kokoelma dinosauruksen munia neon valoissa.
