APERTO is a restaurant in Trading Quarter specialized in Brunanter aperitives. Similar to tapas, these are small snacks which are accompanied by aperitive liqueurs, traditionally taken between lunch and dinner. The name is taken from the Barzuna word, apertivos.
Chefs Michal Kowalski and Brunanter Enrique Andona thus created their restaurant to bring these flavors of Mediterranean eating to Lovia. Many of them are based on passed-down recipes from The Art of Eating (the Brunanter kitchen bible) though some are Lovian inventions, using salmon and local ingredients to create their apertos.
As in Brunant, the restaurant is organized so that customers select the little bites they want and then pay, and sit to eat. Like Brunant, this is a la carte eating. Customers can then select a glass or bottle of their preferred aperitive drink or wine to accompany their bites, as is traditional.
