Culinary Warsaw doesn’t stop surprising
More often Varsovians look for something more than just tasty food and good coffee. In response to this demand, new venues keep appearing on the culinary map of the capital city. Apart from a rich menu, they offer to their guests the possibility to spend an interesting time, or connect with people with similar interests and values. Such venues, and many others, were collected and presented by Knight Frank in the latest, third issue of the culinary guide ‘Let’s Meet in Warsaw’.
Varsovians are more eager to search for opportunities to dine together, and eating out is becoming an experience and form of spending time rather a mere need. That is why it is worth to look for places on the city map which cater their guests with something more than just good quality food and freshly ground coffee. Clients who choose a venue for lunch or a meeting with dessert value both quality products and the concept behind the spot. The number of unique places in Warsaw is growing, and the time is always right for a culinary adventure. There is something for everyone. It does not matter if you are a fan of the cult American sitcom, a pet lover, a born traveller, or an avid reader of Stephen King’s dark novels. Warsaw is full of passionate individuals not afraid to share and inspire others. Through their actions they make history alive and promote ideas they believe in.
"As in the previous years, we have collected a culinary variety of the most visited locales in Warsaw. We placed our focus on the central parts of the city such as Grzybowski Square, the area of Poznanska, Wilcza and Hoza Streets, or the all-time-favourites: Nowy Swiat and Chmielna Streets. Still, we have left some room for true culinary standouts on the right bank of the Vistula. You will find interesting places worth visiting along Zabkowska and Okrzei Streets as well as Francuska Street. It would seem that not a lot has changed during a year. Yet, we remain concious of diversity. In this issue we present places never before mentioned by us which are really worth visiting. These restaurants attract with atmosphere, interior design and, first and foremost, sophisticated menus. You can try Polish cuisine in various takes as well as French, Italian, and Japanese dishes, or the increasingly popular Georgian or Hawaiian specialties," commented Jadwiga Małek, Junior Consultant, Research, Knight Frank.
"The hectic lifestyle forces us to sacrifice a lot, also in terms of eating habits. We fall to the trap of being in a constant hurry and tend to forget about the old rule: You are what you eat. Fortunately, more and more Warsaw restaurants and bars remember about that for us. To answer the needs of the fast-paced urban life they prepare healthy, light and additives-free food which is delicious. Benefits for our health go in pair with protecting the enviroment. Restaurants and bars with a healthy menu care after not only the freshness of their products, but also sourcing from local suppliers, and responsible production which does as litlle harm as possible to the natural environment and its inhabitants. We can clearly see that Varsovians care about what they have on their plate. In the previous years, we could observe a rise in the popularity of healthy foods not only on supermarket shelves. Yet, looking at them after a few years, we still find niches in their offer which restaurant owners seem to fill. There a many vegan and vegetarian venues which are GMO-free and cook without the use of microwaves. Many restaurants buy their products at local suppliers and offer healthy meals dedicated for sportmen and people who remain physically active," added Bożena Garbarczyk, Senior Consultant, Research, Knight Frank.
