    Introducing the Exciting New Restaurants in the MICHELIN Guide Poland

    The highly anticipated MICHELIN Guide Poland 2023 has just been released, unveiling a captivating selection of culinary experiences across the country. This year, the guide takes us on a gastronomic journey through Cracow, Warsaw, and for the first time, the vibrant city of Poznań. With a total of 49 recommended restaurants, including two new Two MICHELIN Star establishments, two new One MICHELIN Star restaurants, and six new Bib Gourmand entries, Poland’s culinary scene continues to captivate and impress.

    Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides said:

    “We are thrilled to announce Poland’s first ever Two MICHELIN Star restaurant, as we continue to follow the exciting gastronomic developments in Cracow and Warsaw. We are also excited to expand our coverage of Poland to include Poznań, one of the country’s oldest cities, with its rich cultural history. The inspectors were impressed by its vibrant and fast developing restaurant scene and have found many appealing restaurants to recommend to our readers.”

    At the forefront of this year’s guide is the historic city of Cracow, which proudly boasts the country’s first-ever Two MICHELIN Star restaurant, Bottiglieria 1881. This culinary gem has been elevated from its previous One MICHELIN Star status, a testament to the extraordinary talent and dedication of the team. Upon entering the restaurant, diners are treated to a front-row seat at the open kitchen, where the skill and finesse of the chefs are on full display. The menu, though unassuming in its descriptions, showcases dishes that are both refined and original. From the deceptively simple “Fish and Peas” to the intriguing “Countryside Pork,” each plate is a work of art, carefully crafted with layers of flavor that surprise and delight.

    The city of Poznań, making its debut in the MICHELIN Guide, offers an exciting addition to the Polish culinary landscape. Muga, a new entry, shines bright with its well-deserved One MICHELIN Star. Nestled in the ground floor of an elegant apartment building, this formal restaurant has been impressing guests since its opening in 2014. Muga delights diners with its depth, elegance, finesse, and balance in every dish. Expect culinary wonders like scallops with sea lettuce and quinoa, and roasted duck with beetroot and elderberry, all prepared with meticulous attention to detail.

    In the bustling capital of Warsaw, we witness the triumphant return of chef and restaurateur Andrea Camastra. Although his previous venture, ‘Senses,’ fell victim to the challenges posed by the pandemic, Camastra has made a triumphant comeback with the opening of NUTA. This new restaurant brings together a harmonious fusion of flavors and textures, drawing inspiration from both his Italian heritage and a passion for Asian cuisine. The result is a menu filled with original creations like Baltic sea trout with Oscyoek and Leczo with lobster, calamari, and octopus. At NUTA, diners are invited to embark on a culinary adventure that bridges the gap between traditional Polish fare and international influences.

    The MICHELIN Guide Poland 2023 paints a picture of a country whose culinary scene is evolving and thriving. With its first Two MICHELIN Star restaurant and the introduction of new culinary destinations, Poland’s gastronomy has firmly established itself on the global stage. The guide showcases the passion, skill, and creativity of the country’s talented chefs and highlights the diverse range of flavors and dining experiences available. Whether you find yourself in Cracow, Warsaw, or Poznań, prepare to be enchanted by the culinary treasures that await you in Poland.
