Chef Tvrtko Šakota’s restaurant NAV is located in the center of Zagreb, in an old courtyard, on the first floor of the house. The space is very pleasant, set up as a cooking studio. Behind the large glass panels the kitchen overlooks the hall with high ceilings, clean lines and a combination of minimalism and large, warm wooden surfaces. NAV offers only four types of tasting menus that differ in the number of dishes. Chef Šakota cooks exactly what is written on the board at the entrance - a modern Croatian cuisine. He prepares old and forgotten Croatian dishes, often from almost extinct ingredients, using modern culinary techniques. The service is professional and fast, very pleasant, without any imposing attitude. They give you the impression of a team loving what they are doing. All the dishes in NAV are signature dishes, inventive, modern, with very original combinations of foods. The preparation includes the processes of ageing, fermentation and pickling. The presentation is unique as well. From the very beginning we were intrigued by the airy, sparkling cloud in which the main ingredients of the dish were hidden. We were eager to discover what it was. We were delighted by the perfect harmony of flavour of the caramelized milk foam on a bed of organic barley, with the barley porridge chips and the sweet and spicy organic grape gel. We found that same harmony in the dish that for us was the most impressive of the dinner - the bowl of creamy corn with cubes of crispy corn husk, popcorn, and alburnum of the cob of corn. The perfection of different flavours from a single food - corn - achieved by the combination of top techniques and creativity of the chef. Zero waste, like all the other dishes on the menu. The wine list is very interesting and offers domestic and foreign wines, most from organic, ie vineyards of natural approach. There are also two beers on offer, which chef Šakota makes with the brewery ‘Brlog’. A top experience for every recommendation. Be sure to book a table. With its original and impressive dishes, NAV is one of the most important restaurants on the Zagreb gastronomic scene. For his creativity, perseverance passion and overall culinary vision the chef Tvrtko Šakota won his fourth Gault&Millau toque.
