fine dining

Platter by Karol Okrasa
Airless and anodyne: that’s the reputation Warsaw’s hotel restaurants are unfairly lumped with. True, the balance tips towards sterile, stifling boxes serving food to the masses, yet likewise, it’s remiss to overlook those that are doing something special. Their number is few, but there’s a noisy minority that are...
La Rotisserie: Updated!
It began with duck foie gras and finished with a caramel Valrhona chocolate parfait. In between came a scallop salad with plums, almonds and tarragon tempura; a grilled tuna; and a seared Barbary duck with blackberry ginger sauce and the kind of parsnips you never knew existed. A timely...

Notes: Enfant Terrible

Blog 4 November 2016 0

The thing I like about L’enfant Terrible is it’s effortless ability to make diners feel comfortable. Chef Michał Bryś has a look that suggests he’s just swaggered back from a rock concert, and that feeling is given extra substance by an interior that looks upscale but casual: plenty of...

Ever since opening four years back, Atelier Amaro has come to be regarded as a point of pilgrimage to which diners flock to worship at the temple of Amaro. This is not an exaggeration. Awarded what was then Poland’s first Michelin star in 2013, Atelier Amaro is so much...
Restaurants: Warsaw In Brief
The Top Table That they own the only Michelin stars in Poland says much about both Senses and Atelier Amaro (pictured below): moments of pure theater are matched by cooking of such inspiration it often distorts into fantasy. L’enfant Terrible enjoy a similarly adventurous reputation though a far less...
Platter by Karol Okrasa
Celebrity chef Karol Okrasa is the inspiration and figurehead behind the menu, but it’s his foot soldiers that deserve real credit. When Okrasa isn’t present, they’re the ones who keep the place ticking over, turning out fine dining moments that go way beyond memorable. Although the hotel environment naturally attracts...
The Next Michelin?
Some are already regarding it as the biggest eyesore the city has sprouted for years. Others see Mac Stopa’s design at the foot of the Spire as a boundary breaking project that’s iconic of modern Warsaw. Whichever side of the divide you fall under, it’s already achieved one aim...
Fine Dining Week
Warsaw’s first ever ‘fine dining week’ aims to showcase the higher end of the capital’s restaurant scene: for zł. 119 diners will be able to enjoy a tailor-made 5-course tasting menu at a number of upmarket restaurants. “During the festival,” say the organizers, “we’ll be aiming to show that...
