Immediately installed as Poland’s most distinguished hotel, the June 2018 launch of the Raffles Europejski Warsaw was the culmination of a meticulous renovation that saw no expense spared. But so much more than just another sumptuous hotel, its inauguration marked the return of an iconic building that has often been at the forefront of the trials and triumphs experienced by Warsaw.
Generously steeped in history, the resulting restoration has seen the Europejski become a benchmark in luxury and a showcase of the finest Polish art and craftsmanship. The real victory, however, was accomplishing this in a way that felt relevant to the now. In this regard, much credit goes to the Europejski’s restaurant, a seriously swish venue in which pearl white colors are teed-up against contemporary flashes (hexagonal lighting, outsized plates hanging from the wall) and gleaming silverware.
Naturally, enjoying the precisely composed dishes is a well-tailored crowd that expects nothing but the best, and the best is exactly what they get.
Beautifully presented, pick through a choice that’s high on important- sounding dishes such as Antonius caviar; smoked mallard duck breast; and ‘heritage dishes’ such as sweetbread schnitzel. As things stand, you’re unlikely to find a better address to impress.
