Alubali (“cherry” in Georgian) is an artisan cafe that offers its guests a return to Georgian roots. “We wanted to find out how our grandparents made traditional dishes. That’s why we traveled to different parts of the country, tasted different cuisine and met the locals, especially older ones. That was the generation we needed to revive our childhood dishes,” the owners say. They succeed in conjuring a nostalgic, wistful atmosphere - bringing a childhood memory of a village yard to life with tangerine and other fruit trees, simple wooden furniture, and strings of sparkly fairy lights. It is best enjoyed in warm weather, but the winter climate is rather cozy too. The menu is everything you could want in a traditional Georgian restaurant, with bold flavors, fresh ingredients, and an exceptionally talented kitchen staff. Alubali is classic, homey, refined - a great spot for a night on the town with a group of friends or a long, lazy lunch topped off by, you guessed it, cherry cake.
