What did the lockdown teach us? Among a jillion other things, that home delivery doesn’t just mean pizza. Certainly that’s the case when using Roomservice.pl. Offering choices from some of the most distinguished restaurants in Warsaw, we bring you six of the best for an evening to remember…
ul. Górnośląska 24
Looking for classic cuisine with no daft flights of fancy? Here you have it. At a time when everyone wants to be Ferran Adrià, Brasserie has both a menu and that you can understand: fresh Fine de Claire oysters with lilac dressing; beef tartare with lovage and ponzu; and Polish rib-eye with a glaze of demi-glace. Their Michelin Bib Gourmand is a source of pride, but it’s the number of repeat clients that are the ultimate paean to the skills of the chef.
Pl. Piłsudskiego 9
Though primarily known as Warsaw’s only champagne bar, this Theater Quarter spot should be equally recognized for an exquisite menu that fells almost an extension of the warm interior. Lauded by Poland’s slow food movement, trust the kitchen to turn out beautiful moments that involve tomato tartare; sous vide chicken breast; and cheese and charcuterie boards loaded with regional produce. What they’re most famous for, however, are Swiss-style raclette: defined by its classic, melty goodness, find it served along with piles of pickles and potatoes.
Kieliszki na Próżnej
ul. Próżna 12
The opening of Kieliszki was an affirmation of Próżna’s successful rehabilitation, and their subsequent Michelin Bib Gourmand providing ample evidence of a kitchen sailing in the right direction. Specifically tailored for home delivery, look to their Room Service menu for dishes such as sorrel soup; Złotnicka pork chop; and burgers featuring beef aged for 90-days and fermented soy mayonnaise – yep, that’s not your standard burger.
ul. Mokotowska 69
Mokotowska 69’s appreciation of steak is well-documented, and it’s here you’ll be able to order Class 9 Wagyu, kobe-style beef and USDA prime Black Angus rib-eye. Beyond things that go moo, the Mazurian crayfish are something of a signature and come in a deep, joyous sauce of rowan berry and brandy while the wild Arctic cod has a fan club of its own. Whatever you order, the quality of product – and the skill with which it’s treated – justifies the price tags.
Pl. Europejski 2
Sushi becomes a heaven’s gate spiritual experience in Wabu: let the evening pass in a blur of beautiful compositions, of silky slithers of fish crowned with expert pinches of this, and little brush strokes of that. Escaping from sushi, look also for their new wave burgers featuring such fillings as Wagyu beef; marinated duck; or Polish beef with kimchi and sriracha mayo. Rightfully, you’ll discover why so many rate it as one of the best Japanese experiences in Poland.
ul. Smolna 4
Certified by Poland’s fledgling slow food movement, the menu gives star billing to the suppliers that keep the pantry full; but the truth is these aren’t the only heroes. The chef, Wojciech Deres, is well-known in the ‘New Polish’ gastronomic circle, and that’s on account of a sublime palette that appreciates balanced tastes with the occasionally bold diversion. Best described as a sanctuary of swish, elegant fancy, it’s from Zielony Niedźwiedź you’ll be ordering Polish farm cheeses; guinea fowl with white asparagus; and lamb with cranberry and pumpkin. Though limited in choice, neither is dessert to be missed – currently, that means a rhubarb cheesecake that will live long in the memory.
