(ul. Walecznych 64)
One of the few fringe benefits to emerge from the first lockdown was our newfound appreciation of all things local: whether it be a market, a night store or just a small little restaurant that made our newly limited horizons feel that little bit more happy.
In the case of the latter, step forward Mięsny. Presenting themselves as a butcher, deli, wine store and bistro all rolled into one, it served as a point of positivity during paranoid times. But then, we expected nothing else. Already firmly embedded in the hearts of the surrounding community (and beyond), this local champion has long been hailed by foodies for a menu that offers an atavistic joyride through primal, caveman pleasures: if there’s a better chateaubriand being served in Poland then we’ve yet to find it.
Set inside a monochrome-floored, white-tiled interior adorned with an azure-colored neon and graphic illustrative wall art depicting tasty farmyard animals, it does more than simply serve our favorite meaty cuts; it makes the neighborhood feel complete. And for that, Mięsny, we salute you.
