Nolita (Again!)

Blog 7 February 2017 0

There are a couple of restaurants in Warsaw that can boast more accolades than Nolita; there’s also some with higher profiles and others with longer waiting lists. But do Nolita feel inadequate? Do they even care? Not a chance. That’s because their consolation is a growing acceptance among foodies,... Read more

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.

Hide the white tablecloth! One of the more discernible trends of 2016 has seen chefs attempt to replicate fine dining standards but in casual surrounds. Few are more qualified to do so than Robert Trzópek, a man whose résumé includes experience gained in Noma and El Bulli. Seeking out... Read more
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.

Notes: Enfant Terrible

Blog 4 November 2016 0

Ever since opening four years back, Atelier Amaro has come to be regarded as a point of pilgrimage to which diners flock to worship at the temple of Amaro. This is not an exaggeration. Awarded what was then Poland’s first Michelin star in 2013, Atelier Amaro is so much... Read more

Atelier Amaro

The recipient of Poland’s first Michelin star, Atelier promotes pedigree Polish produce enhanced by modern techniques, with courses interspersed by occasionally bizarre interludes (leaves, flowers, twigs, etc.). It’s an extraordinary dining experience, and one which confirms the growing cult of chef Wojciech Amaro. In the hours you’re here the... Read more
