The Wisła is all about the summer, right? Wrong. Opened a few weeks back, Winsky represents one of the more exciting launches of the year. A place of deep, luxurious design, the view alone promises much for the warmer months ahead: it’s as if, almost, you can reach out...

There’s a chance I might never be allowed across the bridge after this confession, but when I think of Old Praga I think of half-wrecked buildings and foul-smelling corridors leading to dank, squalid courtyards. But change is afoot: islands of prosperity are emerging as the area takes stop-start steps...

Bankrolled by the same team behind the Michelin starred Senses, comparisons between these two venues will always be inevitable. Yet while Senses is big on show and spend and scientific wisdom, Plato is a little more modest and understandable. That’s not to say the menu isn’t audacious: combining elements...

Review: N31 By Robert Sowa
Been there, done it all. That’s Robert Sowa, a national treasure widely hailed for modernizing Poland’s gastronomic sector back in the country’s culinary dark days. A common sight on TV, the chef’s public profile has meant there’s no shortage of bums on seats in his flagship restaurant, but does...

If there’s a dining room in heaven, then it probably looks like Strefa – only marginally less white. Pure and pristine, the swan-like elegance of the interior whispers dignity and decorum. From the first point of entry, it’s a place that achieves every restaurants goal of offering diners that...

And so… the story this month: that’s seen a stonking good meal in Strefa, a formal looking eatery with a pristine white-on-white interior. Countless highlights, of which the tuna steak and crème brulee merit special mention – delicate dishes honed for refined palettes. On the other end of the...
