Review: Señor Lucas
It’s an unfortunate fact of life that any new Mexican in Warsaw is going to find itself benchmarked against the spectacular La Sirena, a place so fabulous as to make you feel sorry for the rest of the field – when it comes to providing competition, what’s the point...
Review: Baron The Family
Who Is He! The last ten years have seen Aleksander Baron evolve from maverick talent to something of a national treasure: credited with re-popularizing the country’s love affair with fermented products, his use of historic techniques and recipes from bygone times (and we’re talking several centuries here) is as...
Review: Klonn
Where Am I? Lovers of the good life will already be familiar with the addy – once home to Poland’s original Michelin starred restaurant, Atelier Amaro, Klonn finds itself planted inside a low-level building just a whisper from Ujazdowski Castle. Designed by co-owner Mirosław Nizio, it’s an interior that...
Review: Naboku
The Back Story Opened by a Danish-Polish couple around about 2012, the story behind Nabo (Neighbor in Danish) is, in many ways, something you’ve probably heard before: husband & wife leave the corporate rat race to pursue their dream of running the kind of little place they’d hang about...
Review: The Botanist
If the lockdown was something of a death sentence for the restaurant scene, it’s telling that the few places that are opening are serving the cuisine people want: and in this city’s case, then yes, that means vegan. The Botanist, though, is something a little more. Okay, so we’re...
Review: Mykonos
The Where… Once rundown and abandoned, Wola’s eastern rump is set to become a poster child for regeneration thanks, largely, to the Browary Warszawskie project. Covering the area that once housed the 19th century Haberbusch & Schiele brewery, the plot as been subject to rigorous work over the past...
Review: Vegan Ramen Shop
Beginning life as a touring pop-up, the success of Vegan Ramen Shop necessitated the launch of a more permanent space in 2017 – the brand has snowballed ever since. This month, we visited their newest space on JPII: here’s what we found. What Others Say Ranked seventh overall in...
Walls & Peace: Urban Art Of Saska K.
With its leafy streets lined with modernist villas and badly parked jeeps, Saska Kępa isn’t the first name to mind when thinking about raw visceral street art – but that’s just what you’ll find at Tel Aviv’s latest venture. Inspired by the mega hip Florentin district of the Israeli...
Eating Out: Restauracja Forty
Not often, but it happens, that along comes a restaurant that fills your world with dazzling new colors – and God knows, don’t we need a bit of that following the lockdown in Spring. Of course, that Forty would be good was kind of expected. Fired out from the...
The Inside Scoop: Warsaw’s Best Ice Cream!
Budka z Lodami ul. Francuska 30 On sunny weekends you’ll find Saska’s longest queues building up outside this simple, street-side cabin. With social distancing now ‘a thing’, those queues are likely to get even bigger! Everyone agrees they’re worth the time, not least for their lashings of frozen yogurt...
