Review: Amber Room
When the time comes to write a complete written history of dining in Poland, there’s one place above all others that will warrant its own chapter. Launched in 2003 under the patronage of media mogul Jan Wejchert, for its first six years The Amber Room was one of the... Read more
La Maison Gourmand
Unrecognizable from its previous incarnation, the restaurant wing of La Maison has undergone a considerable refurbishment to lend it more gravitas. The big change, however, is the food: the daily changing menu has been purposefully kept limited (two or three starters and mains), allowing Arkadiusz Wilamowski’s crew to keep... Read more

Notes: Winosfera

Opened four years back Winosfera have, over the course of time, become a firm Chłodna fixture – the kind of place that makes the street feel a little more complete.

Restauracja Pod Gigantami

Blog 1 January 2017 1

Fine dining gets a South American makeover thanks to Martin Gimenez Castro, a native Argentinean who has emerged as one of the most influential chefs in latter day Poland.

Platter by Karol Okrasa
Airless and anodyne: that’s the reputation Warsaw’s hotel restaurants are unfairly lumped with. True, the balance tips towards sterile, stifling boxes serving food to the masses, yet likewise, it’s remiss to overlook those that are doing something special. Their number is few, but there’s a noisy minority that are... Read more
La Rotisserie: Updated!
It began with duck foie gras and finished with a caramel Valrhona chocolate parfait.
