Notes: Wozownia

Blog 5 February 2020 0

Set in a 200-year-old carriage house within a secretive courtyard, Wozownia started life looking raw and ramshackle – in parts, it still does, but that’s not to say improvements haven’t been made, not least to a Lynch-esque winter garden that feels brilliantly dream-like. Drinks-wise, kick-ass cocktails sell just as...

Invoking the spirit of Eugeniusz Bodo – an interwar screen legend who once owned an arty café at this very address – Warsaw’s latest fine dining spot throws the spotlight on the copious talents of Marek Kropielnicki. His menu is a marriage of local produce, outrageous ideas and precise...

Dom Faraona

Sitting just off Nowy Świat, this Egyptian restaurant comes soaked in the soothing scent of the sheesha. The comprehensive menu has plenty of zingy Middle Eastern small plates for starters, though really earns its stripes on account of its grill dishes: the lamb ribs are a house specialty. If...

Going Out 1 September 2017 0

Set inside the archway, look for a heavy door next to a dented ashtray seemingly unemptied for the last couple of months. Shadowy and shabby, this cult bar is one of Warsaw’s dirtiest little secrets – attracting all sorts: journalists, ex-footballers, failed musicians and functioning alcoholics. It’s a late...
Specjały Regionalne
To step across the threshold is to leave Warsaw behind: mimicking the look of a rural pantry, Specjały is awash with provincial craft work and traditional dress. A truly ethnographic journey, the menu whisks diners across Poland with its choice of classic dishes and regional ingredients: there is heavy,...
N’ice Cream Factory
Whilst you’ll find pancakes and smoothies on the menu, it’s the ice cream that’s the real hook. Made using liquid nitrogen for extra smoothness, options to add alcohol to your ice cream mean it’s not just kids who thrill over this newbie. Vapor puffs and hazard signs add the...

Taking the spot once occupied by Papaya, Thai Me Up offers up a far more informal experience than the former, something understood by one look at the interior: gone is the slick look of yesteryear, replaced by something far more casual, chaotic and cluttered. As for the food, that...

The Insider discovers small is beautiful while getting down and dirty in the town’s top dive bars… by Alex WEBBER Disenchanted by the repetitious nature of Warsaw’s drinkeries? That’s not much of a surprise if you’re sticking to the tried and tested paths. Yet even Nowy Świat, the principal...

Warsaw Potato though gets the jacket potato spot on: large 400 gram monsters baked inside a King Edward oven. The flipside of their laminated menu touts six vegan choices (cooked with olive oil rather than butter) and includes something they describe as the Duffy Duck: kale, cherry tomatoes, onion...
