Another visit to the restaurant recommended by the @michelinguide and there is something to celebrate again. To celebrate the birthday of a friend of Degustująca Istota, Degustująca Istota was invited to the restaurant @bezgwiazdek, where the Chef is Robert Trzopek @roberttrzopek. I’ve been thinking about visiting this restaurant for a long time, but somehow it didn’t happen before. Bez Gwiazdek is a small restaurant with only a few tables. The atmosphere is more homely than restaurant-like and the service seems relaxed as well.
The menu changes once a month and focuses on the region of Poland selected for that month. We stepped in for a menu inspired by dishes from the West Pomeranian Voivodeship.
Several types of bread served with butter and rapeseed oil. 3 eggplants.
Asparagus with onion broth
Intensive broth with crispy asparagus. 3 eggplants.
Cabbage cones with potatoe, fried onion, roasted barley groats, and chive flowers. 5 eggplants.
Fish broth/young vegetables/rose
Turbot broth with the addition of roasted butter was very substantial and rich in flavor. It was nicely enriched with pieces of zucchini and asparagus. Pickled rose petals were a surprising and delicious complement to the whole dish. Also visually, this dish made a great impression. 5 eggplants.
Salmon blinis with fresh cream and turbot skin powder. One of the best blinis I have eaten. Perfectly fluffy. 4 eggplants.
A vegetarian version of the above dish. Compressed cucumber on blinis with cream. 2 eggplants.
Fried turbot with fermented fennel. As a side dish, lightly pickled cucumber. 3 eggplants.
The next dish in a vegetarian version, where the turbot was replaced by chicory. 3 eggplants.
This time, a garfish with paprika and tomato sauce appeared on the plate. 3 eggplants.
Delicious dessert. Warm homemade challah, cold elderberry sorbet, sour cream, and strawberries. 4 eggplants.
The dinner was traditionally closed with small sweets from the Chef. Ice mini tartlets with rhubarb flavor, dogwood jellies, and my favorite Suska Sechlońska plum. 3 eggplants.
At Bez Gwiazdek restaurant, dinner was very tasty, although it must be admitted that the menu for June was not exactly tailored to our tastes. We are not big fans of fish, especially a birthday boy who does not eat fish at all and chose vegetarian versions. Unfortunately, we are not in Warsaw as often as we would like and after all, we wanted to try the chef’s authors dishes.
I think the evening was very enjoyable and I’m glad we got to know the minimalist and less formal approach to Fine Dining.
I think that the price of PLN 160/person for a six-course menu, beautiful dishes and carefully selected, high-quality ingredients is not excessive.
The Bez Gwiazdek restaurant receives: 240/250
