I could talk for days about food, but go on, ask me about sushi – you might as well try talking to an owl. It’s not that I have anything against it, it’s just I’ve never understood people who prattle on about it as if it were some heaven’s... Read more

There’s something that creeps me out about the word ‘concept’. It’s slick, corporate and brings to mind greasy executives plotting a campaign for Honda. So when I hear Miłość described as a concept bar I flinch. Needlessly so, it turns out. While there are some people who would consider... Read more

I love the GF, I really do, but there are moments I really don’t want her around. Like, for instance, when I’m dining out. Not because I’m anti-social, you understand, but because good restaurants transform me into a greedy, selfish swine. “Don’t touch,” I find myself admonishing, “I ordered... Read more

Back when I first settled in Poland I used to walk past the Rialto all the time – of course, it wasn’t the Rialto then, rather a boarded-up building that looked ready to die. “Why,” I used to ask, “doesn’t someone put a bit of money into that and... Read more

No doubt Bistro de Belgique has class. Like its counterpart, Batida, the interiors breathe heavy with sophistication and elegance. Classic Franco-Belgian touches play to its advantage, with tall French windows giving views of pl. Konstytucji and allowing for rare streams of sunlight to come slanting in. It all makes... Read more

I used to work with an editor in New York who told me that she had a rotation of local restaurants she would visit each night after work since she hated to cook (even though we worked together on a food magazine). I remember asking her if she felt... Read more
Sueño Café & Tapas Bar
Located on the outskirts of Warsaw University, Sueño has seduced much of the younger generation – and for good reason. The simple décor, inspired by a traveler’s way of living, provides a casual yet lively atmosphere. Surfboards and beach photographs decorate the walls and hammocks hang from the ceilings....

Kafe Zielony Niedzwiedź
Don’t be fooled by the city center postcode, Zielony Niedzwiedź is a destination restaurant that feels isolated from the world – no rolling up to the door via taxi here, instead diners sneak down a park pathway before arriving outside a modern block of brick and glass. Set amid the greenery,... Read more

In Baby Buggy Land, also known as Nowy Wilanów, it isn’t just the little tikes who are popping up everywhere. This southern bedroom community is prime restaurant hunting ground. Someone has to feed all the yuppies (a borrowed, re-formatted acronym for Young Upwardly-mobile Polish Parents) – and it’s a good... Read more

My wife and I passed this restaurant when it was a set for Przepis Na Życie, a television show on TVN. After it opened as Superiore, we observed a constant stream of people inside and decided to give it a try. We went on an early Saturday evening to... Read more
