Rethinking Polish Cuisine

An exquisite restaurant in a beautiful location with an inventive approach to traditional Polish flavors-this is the Amber Room restaurant in a nutshell. The restaurant opened earlier this fall in the Sobańskich Palace near Łazienki Park.

"We cannot confine Polish cuisine to a plate with a pork chop and cabbage on it, because Poland has for centuries been a melting pot of many different cultures, nations and ties between the East and the West," says chef Wojciech Modest Amaro. Amaro, who won the prestigious Chef de l'Avenir 2007 award, liberally combines tradition and modernity.

The restaurant staff have refined manners that project unforced elegance. The names of the dishes on the menu hardly do justice to the sophistication with which they are prepared and served. The menu includes white-fish from the Mazuria Lake District with pickled vegetables and roast potato soup (zl.29), fried boletes with veal sweetbread (zl.45), dumplings stuffed with veal and served with dried tomato sauce and parmesan mousse (zl.28), quail stuffed with mushrooms and foie gras, kopytka dumplings with green peas (zl.75), anglerfish with powdered tomatoes, eggplant, black olives and quail's egg (zl.99). This is food that challenges preconceptions of what traditional Polish cuisine is about.
