Restaurant Grotesk, Helsinki

According to a New York Times article, the Helsinki restaurant Grotesk takes its name from the typeface used on its menu. The Times' exact words, that the restaurant is "named for the type front [sic] used on its menu and not its look," do leave me with some doubts. I'm picturing here a menu set in some kind of blackletter, or thinking that perhaps something got lost in the translation.

The restaurant's website is set mostly in some slab serif, and the logo looks to be handrawn script. The place does occupy the former premises of the Helsingin Sanomat.

Any Finns or people who've been by Helsinki recently who know the story?

Kiitos!

I’ll be sure to ask if I ever go there again.
