Brasserie Warszawska, Warsaw

I visited Poland for work a few months ago and discovered SO many great restaurants, including Brasserie Warszawska, which serves and the best pierogis in Warsaw.

I came out of a Chopin recital on my second (freezing cold) night there, and stepped inside the warm restaurant with its low golden lighting and traditional banquettes, sitting down at a cosy red leather booth with a glass of champagne.  The decor is smart with black and white floor tiles, yellow walls lined with mirror panels and illustrations in neat frames, high ceilings with those quintessential brasserie fans, classic white tablecloths and a giant vase of fresh flowers on the zinc bar.

The Michelin Guide restaurant serves classic Polish cuisine alongside modern European dishes, using local ingredients and meat from its own butcher shop.  To start, I had a traditional sour soup with homemade white sausage, quail’s egg and marjoram with sweet onion - it was clearer and herbier than other sour soups I’d tried, but still delicious.  Next, I had an incredible Jerusalem artichoke dish served with truffle mayonnaise and sunflower pesto.  For the third dish, I had the best pierogis I’ve ever had: they weren’t oily or too buttery, tough and overcooked or slimy and undercooked. They were just right, served with thinly-sliced truffle, crispy bacon, an onion consommé and sprinkled with finely chopped chives.  Worth the trip alone.

Next, I had a creamy fois gras parfait with apple and apricot chutney, served with a glass of fruity Piemonte Mature Madeira wine, followed by sea bass with bouillabaisse sauce, mussels, chopped courgette and crispy croutons.  For dessert, I had a crisp chocolate sphere which cracked open to reveal white chocolate and passionfruit to finish a beautiful six course dinner.  Fellow foodies, this is a must when visiting the Polish capital!
