It’s not hyperbole to call Atelier Amaro one of Poland’s most modern restaurants, and the folks at Michelin certainly agree; it is the first restaurant in the country to land a coveted Michelin star. All the credit goes to famed chef and owner Wojciech Modest Amaro, who describes the cuisine as “where nature meets science.” That ‘science’ is molecular gastronomy, which means almost nothing is as it seems: an amuse-bouche arrives on the table with a flourish of dry ice fog, revealing caviar atop a surprisingly citrusy foam. Meals can be 6 (310 zł Tue-Thu) or 9 (380 zł Fri-Sat ) “moments” and employ traditional Polish plants like nettles and beetroot in unexpected, highly creative dishes – like juniper ice cream hugging a miniature chocolate cake with chestnuts (the menu changes almost daily). Count us as impressed that Amaro himself can be seen serving many of the dishes in this intimate restaurant. An absolute must for diehard foodies (children under 14 years of age are not allowed any day). The restaurant lunches are served Wed-Fri 12:00-14:00 (last order at 13:30), so best get there early or put up with the crushing disappointment of missing out and waiting for the place to re-open at 18:00.
