Haute cuisine on a shoestring


Around a hundred of the best-rated restaurants in Slovenia will provide three-course meals at reduced prices starting at 23 euros between 13 and 22 October as part of the autumn edition of Restaurant Week.

The annual project, consisting of the spring and autumn editions which usually attract around 100,000 guests in total, features 28 restaurants from the Michelin Slovenia Guide 2023.

To make it onto the list, restaurants need to be graded highly by the project's co-founder and food critic Uroš Mencinger or by reviews at the restaurant search engine on the website.

This year's autumn edition will for the first time feature the participation of the Ministry of Agriculture and of Slovenian meat farmers and processors.

These have prepared a Slovenian meat promotion campaign that involves special labels for restaurants to use on their menus to confirm their dishes contain selected quality Slovenian meat.

Mencinger says the campaign will make guests more aware of what is on their plate and encourage restaurants to choose quality ingredients.

One of the participating establishments, the long-established JB restaurant in Ljubljana has been involved in the project for the last ten years, from the very beginning.

"In these years, we have noticed that guests have become more demanding, they have more questions about the origin of ingredients," JB's Nina Bratovž said at the presentation of the autum edition of Restaurant Week on 10 October.

Reservations for Restaurant Week are accepted here.
