Poznań Culinary Guide 2016 is out now!
Creating the first comprehensive culinary map of Poznań over a year ago was not the easiest of tasks. Over 500 eating places posed us with quite the challenge. To discover, visit, assess and finally choose the best - this task turned out to be much more difficult than we had anticipated, and the final result left us wanting more. Each summary could easily have a few more places in it, and they in turn would have become the perfect additions to the list due to their uniqueness. And so, for our difficult second album - the second edition of the guide is an overview of well tested places with character - from milky bars to burger and pasta joints, to top fine dining run by prize-winning chefs. Free copies of the guide are available in City Tourist Information Centers as well as for download in PDF format. The guide has been made in cooperation with the sponsor, Makro Cash and Carry Polska S.A.
We are happy and proud to share with you all our passion for discovering Poznań’s culinary face, and we also continuously rely on your assistance in finding new, interesting places. We are aware of how much more is out there still to be discovered, especially given the fact that Poznań’s rich culinary offer is one of the top reasons to visit the city. Our recommendations are just a small part of this offer. We invite you to check out the establishments we list, and to find others. Perhaps, thanks to you, they will find their way onto the next year’s editions of the guide and the sites of our tourist portal.
The website and printed version of the guide have been divided into the same thematic categories. Our guide recommends nearly 200 eateries in and around Poznań. Over 90 restaurants, bars and cafes have been reviewed and photographed. More interesting places can be found in the EAT section of our website.
For the first time, this edition of the guide also lists the establishments awarded by the Gault&Millau Guide Poland 2016. It is the other, next to Michelin, prestigious and international publishing series, professionally reviewing the culinary market. A spot in the Gault&Millau guide cannot be bought, and a visit from their assessing inspector cannot be scheduled ahead. 21 Poznań based restaurants have made it into the second Polish edition of the yellow booklet. In our guide, these restaurants are highlighted by the symbol of a chef’s hat in the restaurant’s description. The more chef’s hats, the better the grade from the Gault&Millau experts. The assessment system is based on points and hats. Restaurants which are featured in the Yellow Guide have received at least 10 out of the 20 points awarded. If it received more than 10, locales are also awarded between 1 and 5 hats.
The name of the guide stems from the names of two culinary critics who created it. They were Henri Gault (1929–2000) and Christian Millau (1965-).
Our guide is further elaborated and complemented by the EAT section of www.poznan.travel. Information about Poznań’s tourist attractions appears there, and we highlight the most interesting ones and review them in more detail.
