    Kafe Zielony Niedźwiedź

    It seems we were the last to visit Kafe Zielony Niedźwiedź after it got flooded with praises and awards. And all of them rightfully earned. During the Editor’s and mine almost-3-hour dinner everything was great- the service, the food and the atmosphere. To be honest, I’m not a great fan of the business clientele, their over-the-table (or under-the-table) transactions and deals closed while eating an expensive steak and not paying attention to that fact at all, but here they somehow blur into a non-invasive landscape. Maybe it’s the interior, with tables located not too close to each other, maybe the beautiful view on the park? Anyway, if you’re afraid it’s gonna be stiff and formal, don’t be- the staff is really friendly and relaxed, but they attend to you when you just need them and they make you feel welcome. We’ve decided to celebrate a special event with a luscious dinner and boy, was it awesome! For starters, we chose foie gras and steak tartare. While I’m not a huge lover of foie gras, this one was perfect: beautifully presented (as were all the dishes), soft and creamy (with no tough or chewy bits), dotted with some frozen foie shavings and served with fruity, sweet and savoury sauce.
