ul. Górnośląska 24, tel. 22 628 923, brasseriewarszawska.pl Unless you’re caught in one of the annual trade union street ‘disputes’, Warsaw’s diplomatic district has the still, silent air of a sleepy little snoozefest – it’s an area of quiet parks and solemn statues, art nouveau architecture and tinted-out cars.

I was apprehensive about Signature, apprehensive for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I was entering the unknown. In spite of passing it numerous times to gallivant around the bars of Poznańska, the windows are set high off the ground, meaning I’d never really managed to peek inside: I was... Read more
