The simplicity of the aesthetics here belie their beauty: like strange, alien planets, spherical lights dangle from the tall ceilings casting the concrete colored interiors in a warming glow that feels tastefully restrained. Food-wise, you’ll enjoy it. Several steps beyond what you’d expect from a neighborhood pizzeria, find wonderful... Read more
Gdynia-Tel Aviv: POLIN’s Stunning Exhibition
Three-thousand miles apart, yet bonded by several underlying similarities, a new exhibition at the POLIN museum seeks to explore the entwining commonalities between Gdynia and Tel Aviv. Rippling blue seas, pristine white buildings, stretching sands and clear, sunny skies. This is the Gdynia and Tel Aviv that the exhibition... Read more
Warsaw’s Top Ice Cream
You Melt My Heart! What did the Insider do this summer? We ate every ice cream that Warsaw had to offer. From a choice running into the zillions, the following are the ones that had it licked… Frank Warszawa ul. Polna 18/20 Mixing, so they say, French philosophy with... Read more
Review: Kur & Wino
It’s hard to fault a concept when it’s executed this well. In this case, that means chicken from Podlasie and guineafowl from Wielkopolska cooked rotisserie-style and then served either whole or halved on wooden trays with an array of homemade sauces that include sweet plum, spicy mango and Sriracha....

Without being privy to statistics, you’d hazard a guess this was the most blogged about restaurant of March 2019. Small and informal, the narrow choice makes it easy to sample everything within a couple of visits – and it’s likely you’ll return to do just that. Replicating the street... Read more

It’s hard to fault a simple concept when it’s executed this well. In this case, that means rotisserie chickens and guinea fowl served on wooden trays with an array of homemade sauces that include sweet plum, spicy mango and Sriracha. Amiable service, a funky / retro design (old LPs,... Read more

With the generic Nero on one side, and the super cool Fat White on the other, Robusta occupies a safe middle space in more ways than one. Whether it can compete with either is to be seen, but for now there’s no doubt that it’s mere existence is further... Read more

Insouciant one moment, your best friend the next, the staff at Jaś & Małgosia show the two faces of Polish service brilliantly. Reactivated a couple of years ago, this pavilion bar has a story dating back to the 60s, and a great atmosphere primed for plates of simple food,... Read more

Attached to a super cool barber shop (tatts, beards, crazy whiskers!), this tiny café has a beauty of an interior: swan white with surfaces graced by contemporary artwork that references the Muranów district and dozens of collectible superhero figures (plus a gun-toting Pacino). There’s a real scene going on... Read more
