Poland’s First Michelin Star Restaurant

Warsaw’s Atelier Amaro is the first Polish restaurant to receive a Michelin Star and takes its place in the Michelin Red Guide Main Cities of Europe 2013 published in Paris in mid-March.

The Michelin inspectors cited the use of local produce, the innovative cooking style and the original composition of flavors in awarding the honor. “I am very proud of this great distinction,” said Wojciech Modest Amaro, owner and head chef at Atelier Amaro. “We had hoped that the Rising Star we got last year would be changed to the first Michelin Star for Polish cuisine.”

In his restaurant Amaro seeks to redefine Polish cuisine in a signature style, looking to nature for rare ingredients and combining them in surprising ways.

Michelin stars are coveted by restaurant proprietors the world over. The decision to award a star is made collectively by three Michelin inspectors. One star means a very good restaurant in its category, two stars mean brilliant cuisine that is worth a visit, and three stars designate unique cuisine worth a special trip.

The inspectors’ visits are always anonymous. The food critics look like regular customers, sometimes arriving with companions. This gives the guide’s readers the certainty that the level of service they receive will be no different from what the reviewer experienced. Once they pay for their meal, the inspectors may identify themselves, for example to obtain extra information about the establishment.

The 2013 Red Guide describes 2,154 restaurants representing different styles, scales and prices of meals from 44 cities in 23 European countries. Among them are 40 Polish restaurants—21 in Warsaw and 19 in Cracow. Warsaw’s Butchery and Wine restaurant received the Bib Gourmand symbol, awarded to restaurants offering good food at moderate prices.

Aside from making its main product, tires, Michelin publishes maps and culinary guides (red) and travel guides (green). The Michelin Red Guide has been published for over 100 years and is considered the world’s top culinary guide, both in terms of sales and reputation. All the practical information and restaurant rankings are checked and updated every year.
