Unrecognizable from its previous incarnation, the restaurant wing of what was, until recently, La Maison, has undergone a considerable refurbishment to lend it more gravitas. The big change, however, is the food: the daily changing menu has been purposefully kept limited to approximately two to three starters and mains,...
Review: Chłodna 15
“Just like a footballer wants to win the Champions League,” says Arkadiusz Wilamowski, “so I want to win a Michelin star.” More than hollow words, the chef’s ambition is backed-up by a CV that includes some of the top restaurants in Europe: Hibiscus, Sketch London, and Alain Ducasse at...

Hide the white tablecloth! One of the more discernible trends of 2016 has seen chefs attempt to replicate fine dining standards but in casual surrounds. Few are more qualified to do so than Robert Trzópek, a man whose résumé includes experience gained in Noma and El Bulli. Seeking out...
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...
