Review: Fest

FeaturesReviews 3 December 2019 0

There are those that claim Fest’s best months are in summer, and sure, their argument is convincing: hidden down twisting roads flanked by glinting waters and thick, tangled woodland, it’s an unexpected picture of pastoral bliss – every bit as satisfying as arriving to a rural refuge. But make... Read more
Świętoszek Tartuffe
Renovated by the renowned stage designers Marcin and Mateusz Stajewski, this subterranean venue is set with arcing brick walls and polished bits of fancy: elegant enough for something special yet casual enough for walk-ins. Originally founded in 1986 by the Theater Guild as a space in which performers could... Read more
Kuchnia Czwerwony Rower
Identified by the red bike hanging outside, this canteen-style affair is an antidote to the rampant monetization of Praga.

FeaturesReviews 7 November 2019 0

Accessed via a striking glass-ceilinged courtyard, Lobo presents itself in two parts: the first, a dark, fern-colored dining room with a show-stealing tree installation; and the second, a more spacious area high on natural light and soft, blond wood. It’s an environment in which you’d be equally happy to... Read more

Lokalna Bistronomia
The menu summons the spirit of Old Praga with appearances from stalwart heritage dishes such as sour-rye soup, Silesian dumplings, potato pie and chopped liver. Everything screams Made in Poland, right down to a drinks list that involves beer from the local Maryensztadt brewery. There’s atmosphere, as well, with... Read more
Rest.Baczewskich
A grander opening there has not been this year. Inspired by the cuisine of Old Poland and pre-war Lviv, dishes include Galician-style herring and beef cooked in pork fat and served with white porridge and fried cabbage – as classic as they sound, presentation is pure 21st century and... Read more
