ABOUT
This little gem was presented to the Latvian restaurant market by Alexander Slobine in early 2018. He chose Riga's prestigious area nicknamed the Quiet Centre to locate a small family Japanese gastropub. THE CATCH is cozy, warm and the attitude here is friendly. The interior was made using warm tones and textures that are soft to touch. At the izakaya we embraced a muted, natural aesthetic with handmade black clay tableware and dimmed lighting. The site includes family sitting options and invites people to socialize more than the average Latvian does. Our signature mermaids on the walls were drawn by a Latvian artist Ilze Krastiņa. THE CATCH is one of the liveliest restaurants in Riga and is well-known in the Baltics. This spot inspired us to unite as a creative group, making boutique restaurant concepts internationally.
KITCHEN
THE CATCH is famous for its fish. We started the brand with dedication to quality seafood and became a licensed fish importer. We bring the world's best product to our guests. THE CATCH is a top destination for precious raw bar foods like sashimi and sushi. The restaurant is praised for creating our unforgettable palettes that guests come back for. The best way to get an impression of the food is to follow the to-share dining style. It is easy to do in Japanese cuisine, since all of the dishes are made for sharing.
The restaurant's hot kitchen offers foods from a Japanese grill called robatayaki. The term itself explains a way of cooking food over hot charcoal similar to barbecue, that is inherited from northern Japanese fishermen. It's a centuries-old country style of making meals. Robatayaki itself is a wide, flat open fireplace. We offer meat, fish and veggies from the robata, mainly avoiding European-style side dishes to keep the original dining aesthetics. THE CATCH is also praised for it's authentic chicken ramen made without premixes. One can also find classic Japanese fast food such as gyudon on the menu.
BAR
We are most known for our meticulous attitude to making beverages. Apart from our signature drinks, we are strong in making the perfect classic cocktails beloved by wide public. The secret is to deliver the same quality each time the guest comes back. Our bar staff has both the precision and the passion for making the perfect drink.
The beverages menu lists interesting wines, boutique brand spirits, several homemade Japanese beers and, of course, sake.
THE CATCH CONNECTS A DIVERSE PUBLIC, CREATING A TEXTURED SOCIETY OF FOOD LOVERS. DON'T MISS THE FINEST CATCH!
