Recipes as old as 100 years are reinterpreted and rearranged, lost flavours, invented flavours, all in one place. Mircea Dinescu rediscovers and reinvents more than food and dishes in the Lacrimi si Sfinti kitchen, he rediscovers and reinvents a native culinary culture almost lost, or, best case scenario, a culture ignored for over a century. Every product in the menu is prepared with local, organic ingredients only: the fish is fresh, the birds are free range raised, the pigs and calfs come from individual small farms.
The restaurant set up is entirely made of reconditioned wood. Every piece of wood in Lacrimi si Sfinti is at least a couple of decades old. The new objects are also made of recovered old wood. The lego for decorations comes from Copenhaga Lego Storea and over 16000 pieces were used. All the kitchen ware has been created by different artists from: Vâlcea, Harghita, Sighișoara, Mediaș.
