Greetings, gourmet travelers and food enthusiasts! Grab your forks and pack your appetite because the 2023 Polish selection of the MICHELIN Guide has been unveiled, and it’s time to embark on a culinary adventure through Cracow, Poznań, and Warsaw. Poland’s gastronomic scene is buzzing with excitement, and we’re here to guide you to the best tables in town!

First things first, let’s talk about the big news! Bottiglieria 1881 restaurant has been bestowed with not one, but two MICHELIN Stars! It’s Poland’s first-ever Two MICHELIN Star restaurant, and the hype is absolutely justified. They’ve been promoted from their One MICHELIN Star status, and you can bet your taste buds that it’s a spectacle worth savoring.

At Bottiglieria 1881, the kitchen is alive with the captivating dance of talented chefs, and lucky for you, you can snag a table right in front of the open kitchen. Trust us, it’s like dinner and a show. The dishes that emerge from this culinary magic show are nothing short of divine – refined and original, with flavors that’ll make your palate sing. Their menu descriptions may sound modest, like ‘Fish and Peas’ or ‘Countryside Pork,’ but don’t be fooled. Each plate bursts with artistry and layers of flavor that will leave you wanting more.

Now, let’s shift our focus to the newly awarded One MICHELIN Star restaurants.

In the charming city of Poznań, we welcome Muga into the prestigious Guide. Nestled on the ground floor of a chic apartment building, Muga boasts a formal and professional ambiance since its opening in 2014. Prepare to be treated to a symphony of taste with dishes like scallops accompanied by sea lettuce and quinoa, or roasted duck served alongside beetroot and elderberry. It’s a harmony of depth, elegance, finesse, and balance on a plate!

Meanwhile, in the heart of Warsaw, a talented chef and restaurateur, Andrea Camastra, has risen from the ashes like a culinary phoenix.

His previous restaurant, ‘Senses,’ might have been a pandemic casualty, but with sheer determination, he’s back with a vengeance with the sensational NUTA. Here, you’ll experience a delightful blend of flavors and textures, drawing inspiration from Poland, Italy, and even Asia. From Baltic Sea trout paired with Oscypek to Lecsó infused with lobster, calamari, and octopus – it’s a gastronomic adventure like no other.

But wait, there’s more! The Bib Gourmand category has expanded its ranks with six new recipients – all offering good food at reasonable prices.

In Cracow, you’ll find yourself buzzing with excitement at MOLÁM, a lively Thai restaurant where the aroma of spices dances in the air. In Poznań, Fromażeria is a haven for cheese lovers; cheese dreams really do come true! TU.REStAURANT in Poznań is visually stunning with a modern European menu that’ll captivate your taste buds.

In the vibrant city of Warsaw, Koneser Grill has taken residence in an old vodka factory, turning it into a temple of steaks.

And if you’re craving authentic Italian flavors, Le Braci’s intimate setting is where you need to be, with an enticing menu to match. For those who cherish hearty cooking paired with an extensive wine list, Kieliszki na Próżnej is your go-to spot.

These new Bib Gourmand awardees join the ranks of the already established ‘Bib’ alewino, where traditional Polish flavors and a wide selection of wine blend into a delightful culinary symphony.
