Chef Wojciech Modest Amaro has done Poland proud receiving the nation’s first-ever Michelin Star in 2012. This top recognition is applause for his Nature Calendar, a unique approach that meshes acutely with each of the year’s 52 weeks. These, as Nature’s distinct episodes, are used by him to produce symphonic points of flavors. “Moments” is how he titles it— lunch comprises of 3 or 5 Moments, while more elaborate evenings consist of 6 or 9. “The ambassadorship of Polish cuisine is inscribed in this atelier’s essence” says Amaro, having garnered worldwide praise over the years. Polish liqueurs, vodkas, and mead, and of course a brilliant selection of wines, all meld with perfected service to bestow a magical experience. Designed by Agnieszka Amaro, the prestigious CovetED Magazine has included atelier Amaro to be amongst the most beautiful restaurants in the world. A destination well worth its own special trip!

AMBER ROOM

Amber Room, located within the historic Sobański Palace on Av. Ujazdowskie, is an architectural and culinary gem that spells absolute class. This landmark restaurant known for its sophistication and class serves an exquisite à la carte menu comprising modern European combined with Polish elements. The menu reflects the seasons; this summer its offerings are replete with grilled vegetarian and meat dishes accompanied by a refreshing selection of wines recommended by the sommelier. The terrace searing at Amber Room overlooks Ujazdowski Park, and is indeed a perfect spot to enjoy sun-filled moments relishing delicious cocktails served from the restaurant’s extensive bar. Recommended by the Michelin Guide 2019 with four couverts, Amber Room received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence 2018, and has been selected, not surprisingly, to be part of the prestigious La Liste!

ALEGLORIA

If one was ever in the need to suffuse romance into life, a visit to AleGloria would be very much in order! The bright interiors are the tasteful amalgamation of cream and strawberry, candle light, polished wood, and gleaming white laced table linen embellished with flowers. Famous restaurateur Magda Gessler is at the helm having taken traditional Polish cuisine to new dimensions; her insights, her creativity, her culinary design, have all made this place one of a kind. Polish goose is a delicacy and Ms. Gessler specializes in dishes made with this healthy, delicious meat: the confit of goose leg with cherry and horseradish sauce; or goose stuffed with dried apricots and walnuts, are examples. With a vast selection of wine from its cellars, and an extensive selection of drinks, AleGloria is indeed Polish hospitality at its modern-day finest. A class experience in a monumental setting!

BELVEDERE

The elegant Restaurant Belvedere is considered to be a remarkable culinary spot in Warsaw. Its 150 year old architecture combines wondrously with interiors designed by Boris Kudlicka. Comprising the orangery of the Royal Lazienki Park, Belvedere’s gastronomic credentials are underscored by awardwinning Chef Sebastian Olma who brings his experience with Gordon Ramsey and Tom Aikens in the UK. His interpretations combine the best of traditional Polish with modern culinary art, and emphasize sophisticated presentation. Wine pairings by sommeliers Piotr Zieliński and Tomasz Marczak include selections from top Polish vineyards. Valued by those who know Belvedere for the culinary summit that it is, it is no surprise that Michelin has designated it as a 3 Fork & Spoon over the last many years. Corporate events for up to 300 guests can be organized here as well. A class act on all fronts!

When Biały Domek, or The White Manor, opened over a decade ago in the heart of Warsaw’s Old Mokotów, the motivating idea of its founders was to provide an unforgettable dining experience that is increasingly being lost to history. Located within a historic country manor with its beautiful interiors and a serene garden, dining here indeed imparts the feel of traditions that once were typical in a multigenerational Polish family home. With an inspiring menu that encompasses just the right breadth of Polish dishes, the sense of being immersed in an authentic setting is fully realized. A cozy interior, along with garden tables in the summer, makes the place an idyllic venue for a relaxed luncheon or a sumptuous dinner with friends and family, or of course for impressing visiting corporate colleagues. This is indeed a must-have experience in Warsaw!

Borpince, a Hungarian-inspired restaurant and wine cellar, is located in the heart of Warsaw. Owner and manager Beata TrónNowak’s Hungarian background makes this place an enclave of authenticity. This is evident as one descends the stairs into the bricks-and-arches basement, home to a selection of over a hundred stellar wines from top Hungarian wine producers. The menu is dynamic and seasonal, made with traditional recipes with many of the ingredients imported directly; the result is original flavors served with a modern bent. The goulash soup; the halaszle, a spicy river fish soup; the traditional pörkölt, a stew with boneless meat and vegetables; and pork mangalica with chestnut puree, are all outstanding. For dessert the Gundel pancake, made with ground walnuts, and served flambéed in a dark chocolate sauce, is an apt high-point to perfect dining!

D. PAWELEK BRASSERIE WARSZAWSKA

The word brasserie implies a relaxed, upscale setting, professional service, white linen, a simple yet comprehensive menu. Brasserie Warszawska is of course more than that, and is reflective of the combined traditions of Warsaw and Paris, suffused perhaps with elements of the new European modernity. The dishes on the menu, such as the beef fillet with dauphine potatoes and spinach, emphasize simplicity; yet simultaneously reinforce the focus on quality of ingredients, methods of preparation, elegance of appearance, and heavenly flavors. The staff here is passionate about what they do; there is an implied guarantee of service and genuine hospitality. The restaurant has an outstanding bar with original-design stools, champagne and fine cocktails; there is a private room ideal for groups of 12 to 24 guests as well. Brasserie Warszawska is surely an uptick on Warsaw’s culinary map!

FINE DINING

Butchery & Wine, considered one of Warsaw’s top restaurants, owes its success to a strict philosophy that emphasizes where its ingredients— mostly beef, seafood, and wine-are sourced from. Its eminence is highlighted by the fact that over the last 7 years it has continuously been awarded with Michelin’s Bib Gourmand, which implies both stellar quality and good value. Owner Daniel Pawelek remains clear with his vision, that this be known as a place where guests can enjoy outstanding dining from a tothe-point menu without distractions that take away from the full experience. Items such as the roast bone marrow; seared scallops with ”boudin noir”; Bavette steak with shallots, are all outstanding, perhaps to be followed by the spiced pear and apple crumble with vanilla ice-cream for dessert. A comprehensive wine list and an informed service staff make Butchery & Wine a top selection!


D. PAWELEK ROZBRAT 20

Adrian Górniak

Rozbrat 20, with its modern Polish cuisine, is now widely considered to be a pillar of the contemporary fine dining trend. Its impressive culinary trajectory is the consequence of the energy and insights of two gastronomic visionaries owner Daniel Pawełek and Chef Bartosz Szymczak. Both of these individuals are driven professionals, inspiring each other to achieve the culinary heights so important for the both of them. Chef Bartosz’s emphasis is on being local, being seasonal, and above all being creative. The majority of the ingredients he uses are in fact sourced by him from local farmers within a radius of 50 km. around Warsaw and from personally known, reliable vendors. Rozbrat 20 is impressive indeed, serving within its relaxing and less formal atmosphere a modern Polish menu where the dishes are light, elegant, and full of flavor. A must-have dining experience in Warsaw!

FINE DINING

Daniel Pawelek, the talent behind stellar restaurants Butchery & Wine, Brasserie Warsaw, and Rozbrat 20, teamed up with Paul Demianiuk, one of the country’s finest sommeliers, to create Kieliszki na Próżnej. Located on Próżna, once the center of the Warsaw Ghetto, and now ironically Warsaw’s culinary cutting edge, Kieliszki is where wine plays first fiddle to what’s on one’s plate. The creative Polish menu here is traditional yet modernized and served with a “tapas attitude.” The creative fervor leads with an impressive wine portfolio from known producers, and whilst mainly from Europe the dominant source is the various wine regions in Italy. The main wall is adorned with a mural by Mariusz Tarkawian and is titled “Lexicon of 2015”---quite clearly a reflection of the fact that the vocabulary here is one of wine, and how it should converse with food. A remarkably refreshing place indeed!


D. PAWELEK KIELISZKI NA HOZEJ

Kieliszki na Hożej is a continuation of Daniel Pawelek’s collaborative effort with star Polish sommelier Paweł Demianiuk. Chef Grzegorz Zięba heads the kitchen with a classic approach that is artisanal in its ethos. He pays strong attention to the seasons and on local products, extracts as much flavor as possible so that the dishes “simply allow nature to flow through.” Grzegorz rediscovers forgotten culinary methods, flavors, and traditions, updating these with modern, sophisticated, and practical forms. His culinary inspirations include potato with mackerel stock, yolk and spring onion; Polish lamb with broad beans, chanterelles, young cabbage and gooseberry; and Sękacz, or the traditional spit cake with blueberries and pudding for dessert. There are over 250 wines by the glass; the Sommelier’s deep knowledge of what goes best with what transforms this into a memorable dining experience!
