please help me out. I'll spend a couple of days in Krakow and Katowice in a couple weeks time. I've seached frommers, nyt, fodors and the michelin guide and a couple of food forums but can't really find a single place that's a must do when I'm there. Judging from the restaurant web sites, it seems 10% of the Krakow restaurants are the cottage or vaulted cellar type places serving rustic traditional food. I'm sure that's great for hanging out with freinds and all but I suppose I'm looking for something more high end. Now there's 2nd problem.., the remaining 10% seems to be all very exquisite and classically elegant. I don't particularly fancy that kind of decor and would rather prefer minimalist or modern. In the end however, the food is the important part and the setting less so.
I've been a couple of times to Warsaw and I was mildly impressed with the food scene. The only passable places I were to was Gessler/Kucharzy and Michel Moran. I guess I want to be more informed when I now have the opportunity to visit Poland again.
Foodies, help me out.. :)
