Łódź's industrial beginnings, and later success, was once steeped in the city's make-up being a diverse melting pot of cultures. Those days of industrialisation may be gone, but Łódź's revitalisation continues, so in this respect, it's fantastic to eat in a place with dishes that are a modern mix of European and Polish cuisine. Found on Plac Wolności, the gateway that welcomes you to/from the main ul. Piotrkowska, Powidok is a welcoming and elegant place, a mix between an art gallery and a restaurant. The work in the open kitchen is as nice to look at as the artwork and interior design - and the food too, which feels almost wrong to destroy with a fork. Lunch is available 12:30-16:30, and the soups, mains and desserts, are delightful, but we suggest trying the 6 (139zł) or 8 (159zł) option tasting menus (available by prior arrangement). Recommended.
