Review: Rozbrat 20
There was a time when Powiśle was the volcanic center of what history will remember as Warsaw’s dalliance with hipsterdom. Now the area has moved forward, gentrified and matured. If once the district was (in)famous for grotto-like shops and bizarre street fashions, today its a polished place of four-wheel... Read more

When did restaurants lose their personality? When did they lose their soul.

With carp scaring the living daylights out of most, herring becomes an unlikely hero on Christmas Eve.
