For the biggest revelation fine dining has seen these last few months look no further than Szóstka, the sixth floor restaurant of the Hotel Warszawa.
A long, slick space decorated with steel tubing, bursts of greenery and a coved glass ceiling, it’s a glorious piece of design with a sparsely furnished terrace featuring killer views of the city below.
In the way of food, expect a load of freebies to land your way first: in our case, a refreshing acai tea; radish with goat cheese and pickled rose petals; and a sprig of kohlrabi.
With applause still ringing for the amuse bouche, along came a vibrant starter of tomatoes, cheese and chives (zł. 34), followed by a main of prime beef rib served with a blob of onion ketchup (zł. 95).
As an ending, the sorrel & mint parfait (zł. 34) felt like a cooling blast of contemporary cooking. Utterly spectacular, it’s the kind of restaurant that makes Warsaw feel special.
