Art From The Other Side
Now showing at the Museum of Modern Art, a startling exhibition that reveals the post-war connection between the artists of South America and their Iron Curtain counterparts… Frequently marginalized in terms of its wider importance, the Kinetic and Op Art movement first emerged in the 1950s as a reaction...

Margarita Kolendra
Without wishing to insult anyone, the way I see it, Mexican cuisine doesn’t require all that much thought – at least, not when it comes to executing the pretty basic dishes that ex-pats demand. What it does need, mind you, is a little bit of know-how and a bag... Read more
Review: Vietnamka
Divey but lively, diners step down into Vietnamka to find a shouty little lair of mint green walls and wobbly wooden tables. Infused with a gentle sense of chaos (drinks after mains, mains before starters), there’s a certain charm at work that feels authentic and convincing. As for the... Read more

RIP: Czarny Roman

Features 6 January 2018 0

Some called him The Prince of the Streets, others The Cosmic Wanderer. All, however, knew him best as Czarny Roman. So named for his penchant for immaculate black clothing, he was a common sight around Chmielna and Nowy Swiat, often seen stalking the surrounding grid of streets whilst shouting... Read more
Review: Talerzyki
Offering a nostalgic journey through Poland’s culinary heritage, Talerzyki have acquired a devoted audience in double quick time: presenting big flavors on small plates, here’s a place that miniaturizes the more glorious aspects of the nation’s cuisine and does so in style. The usual suspects are here – silvery... Read more

Seasonal Star Though it doesn’t have to be winter to enjoy Bar & Books, it definitely helps. Seen through frosted, foggy windows it’s a venue that reveals itself as a place of dark, delicious colors and rarefied air. Occupying the kind of charismatic gatehouse you’d read about in Dickens,...

Old Town With over 60 separate stalls, this one’s the biggie: coiling around ul. Podwale, find dozens of dinky timber chalets specializing in seasonal clutter: hand-carved cats, sinister marionettes, daft woolly hats and sheepskin attire that’s fit for a shepherd. For the full immersion, don’t leave without a bag... Read more
Review: Zielony Niedźwiedź
Ask me to think of Smolna and I think of that hammerhead building at the end of the street: you know, that miserable 70s throwback that hangs over PKP Powiśle like a corpse on a gallows. Yet beyond the commie concrete lies a pathway that zig zags down the... Read more

Tourist trap? You bet! Even so, Kraków’s rise to the top table of European weekend breaks has not been without reason. Come Christmas, it’s hard to resist the spell of her sprawling Old Town. Stay Numbered in the gazillions, the choice of hotels is bewildering. Thrusting art & culture... Read more
