Ever-cheerful Polish TV chef Tomek Wozniak has got an even bigger smile on his face than usual following the launch of his new fast food restaurant Burger Kitchen in Warsaw. Tomek’s credo is to deliver comfort food executed with an eye for detail, and this he has achieved, both in terms of the menu and the Kitchen’s surrounds.
Interior designer Barbara Brokala managed the transition from subterranean former drinking den into something more appetising for daytime diners. Tomek has picked up a few influences on his global travels, and in addition to some international recipes, he developed a taste for eclectic design, too. Modern war-zone effect concrete walls loom opposite pristine tiles, classic Thonet bistro chairs sit beneath stainless steel vents. On the food front, the burgers are made with meat seasoned for 16 days before cooking, everything is done in-house and fresh that day, and the favourite shake – peanut butter, banana and Nutella – sounds so thick it would need sucking up through a didgeridoo.
