Food lovers, dust off your best cutlery and iron your napkins – Krakow now boasts 17 restaurants in the world-renowned Michelin Guide.
The new edition of the gourmets’ bible includes the best of the city’s eateries, which will spend a year basking in the glory before being assessed again for the next edition.
The restaurants are Trzy Rybki, Copernicus, Wentzl, Ancora, Unicus, Resto Illuminati, Szara, Cyrano de Bergerac, Pod Baranem, Jarema, Trufla, La Campana, Farina, Wesele, Miód Malina, Kawaleria, and Del Papa.
However, three previously listed restaurants – Pod Różą, Szara Kazimierz and C.K. Dezerter dropped out.
Katarzyna Cooney, of Resto Illuminati, a newcomer to the guide this year, told Gazeta Wyborcza: “This is a huge honour. The restaurant opened in December 2009, and we wanted to create a place where people would want to come to eat good food, listen to good music, and relax. We are happy because we have regular guests who appreciate it.”
