Original, spectacular, sometimes experimental, but always – inspiring. Emotional: delightful, admirable, full of surprises. Out-of-the-box and intriguing, not easy to be ignored. Cuisine avant-garde has always been an object of fascination among gourmets. In Pomorskie, there are at least several top-class restaurants in which cuisine is delightfully unpredictable.
Courage is without doubt a quality of chefs and restaurant owners who specialise in avant-garde cuisine. There are no strict rules here, experiments are allowed and welcome, and you can draw inspiration from plethora of sources. This is why the final outcome that can be seen on the plates of the most demanding customers are dishes that with their looks and taste evoke the most intense of emotions.
This is what you can expect in Gdynia-based Sztuczka restaurant, where each dish is an original, and meticulously thought-over by the head chef. John Dory filet in grapefruit risotto and grilled leek? Here you go. Or, maybe, smoked eel with potato espuma and crispy potatoes, with trout caviar, served on sour cream? Traditional flavours with a pinch of molecular cuisine are a combination not to be underestimated.
Original approach to ingredients has become a contemporary hallmark of the best restaurants. The head chef of Wave Restaurant in Sheraton Sopot Hotel frequently travels the world, and from his excursions he brings back many inspirations that he then uses in the kitchen. This is why Wave restaurant allows you to taste the most original dishes that originate in the farthest reaches of the world. And all this using local products.
Gdańsk-based Metamorfoza, on the other hand, goes even further in its ability to smarten up traditional, Polish dishes. To come back to the roots, owners of the restaurants decided to found a city farm. Products from this farm are the base of restaurant’s unique menu. All under the “Commis made”, a series of Polish chefs’ meetups.
Additional attractions, such as the possibility to fish for a lobster in a huge lobster tank, are guaranteed by Krew I Woda restaurant. The chosen crustacean is processed on the spot, and an open kitchen allows for observing each step of its preparation.
Nowadays, when selecting a restaurant, we do not follow our taste buds only. Entourage, decor, approach to the customer, and the magical “it” that makes the place truly enchanting are equally important.
