LOKYS is the second-generation family restaurant in Vilnius run by siblings. Co-owner Evaldas inherited the restaurant 20 years ago from his mother, who worked here since its opening in 1972. He currently oversees the service and usually works as a host. Sister Rita has a passion for food and wine just like her mother. Now she is a qualified sommelier and restaurant chef, boasting the diploma of prestigious Cordon Bleu Culinary School.
The new chef co-operated with the historians and researched the history of Lithuanian culinary. In 2018, Rita renewed restaurant’s menu and combined olden recipes with core principles of modern cuisine – natural and healthy products and modern technologies. So the restaurant became the House of Forest Foods (berries, mushrooms, nuts and game), featuring historical stories about Lithuanian Grand Dukes and their manors.
