The history of A&S Restaurants can be considered to have started in 1972, when Timo T. Kaukonen established Saslik. Saslik came under the ownership of the present owners in 1994. In the summer of 2000, the summer restaurant Saari with its maritime atmosphere came along, and in April 2002 functionalist restaurant Bulevardia (est. 1938) joined the family. Unfortunately, the peak period of Bulevardia had passed and for that reason the restaurant was transformed into the Lappish restaurant Saaga at the beginning of 2004. In November 2005 the restaurant Savotta, deeply rooted in Finnish logging traditions, was established on Aleksanterinkatu, next to the Senate Square. (At the beginning of 2007, the storehouse restaurant Tervasaaren Aitta on Tervasaari island came under the ownership of A&S Restaurants. Savu was open until December 2021 and now it is closed because City of Helsinki will sell the property). On 1st of May 2010, Restaurant Saaristo on Klippan Island came to the restaurant family. In 2017 we got a little piece of France to the restaurant family when La Maison joined us and in 2020 we opened Asian Mix restaurant SameSame - but different!
