In their tradition of Exquisite Taste, a 100% Natural and a Superb Service; Chef Gianfranco Chiarini and Anna Chiarini bring to the global audiences and connoisseurs: Chiarini @ Podewils Hotel.
A Unique Restaurant Concept (24 guests only) found in heart of the Historic Center of Gdansk, better known as the Jewel of the North in Poland.
Chiarini @ Podewils Hotel, lies inside the Exquisite and Luxurious 5 Stars Podewils Boutique Hotel built in the 1800’s and which is currently the recipient of many Polish and International awards and recognitions, due to its Extremely Elegant settings and Outstanding Hospitality Service.
Already on the sight of the International Guides and Critics, Chiarini @ Podewils Hotel proposes a unique cuisine which represents the values of Traditional Polish products with a Modernistic Italian approach and extreme artistic presentations.
Chiarini @ Podewils Hotel comprises all the elements of nature: Earth, Fire, Air, Water and Gravity in one ergonomic and culinary experience. Nevertheless comprising the deepest philosophy that embraces Mother Nature which is the 100% natural products and processes. Some of them are even being harvested inside the restaurant itself.
The food products are selected and purchased daily and fresh, taking delicate care of their origin and non-contaminated growth. The close relation of Chef Chiarini with local farmers and butchers; along with the restaurant inner hydroponic raising of micro herbs is vital to control the quality of the final product. The Italian ingredients are treated in the same manner taking capillary attention on Olive Oil, Cheeses, Preserved meats, Truffles and other key ingredients.
The rigorous preparation and delicate execution of the dishes is conceived with the utmost respect to the raw product of both cultures, also respecting traditional basic preparations, but utilizing the latest equipment available to ensure quality and to profit the maximum of every product in its nutritional, censorial, textural and visual original characteristics.
It is extremely relevant to mention that, No Molecular cuisine and no other artificial methods will be allowed in this authentic and honest culinary concept. The mastery of Chiarini’s cuisine is based on true culinary skills and the chef places a center role, not reserved to chemical shortcuts.
Attention to detail in the final stage of plating and delivery is also crucial to the overall experience.
The serving vessels are chosen carefully by Chef Chiarini in partnership with Rochini Finest Tabletop from Austria.
The emphasis on Traditional Polish Cuisine and Traditional/Modern Italian Cuisine is crucial to the success of this concept which will culminate with outstanding service and attention to the customer in a delicate and exclusive atmosphere only available to twenty four (24) privileged guests.
The Concept is based in very strategic and critical points of culinary which comprises Natural, Biological, Sustainable, Seasonal and Local products from both countries simultaneously blended by season and in parallel regarding Climate, Trends and Traditions.
The menu will change partially every three months based and depending on seasonal available ingredients.
The Culinary objective of the menu is to direct the attention to straight forward products, colors, and delicate analysis to flavor profiling where both cultures blend without one overwhelming the other. The portions are honest with authentic and creative choices, served with outstanding presentations. Modern dish outlooks in a Traditional and Tasteful Polish setting.
Chiarini’s à la carte menu is deceptively simple (it contains just eighteen dishes) and is divided into elemental names like: “From the Beginning,” “The Homemade Fresh Flours,” “Fresh from the Garden,” “From the Sea and from the River,” “From the Land and from the Sky,” “The Sins of Sugar”.
No tasting menus are to be executed in this restaurant, as chef Chiarini does not believe in giving to his guest small portions of leftovers from main preparations. Therefore only full robust but delicate dishes will be served.
In terms of technique and composition, the food is about as different as any complex menus you may have seen before. Chiarini @ Podewils Hotel is immerse, in the rapidly growing Polish dining world, as it tends to unfold in a series of slow, predictable stages.
Now in Gdansk; a city filled with history, remembered as the place where World War II began; inevitably, comes into a period of retrenchment and counterrevolution, in which innovation gives way to imitations and original styles that her Majesty Queen Bona Sforza in the 1500’s created for herself and her legacy.
For a firsthand view of this remorseless anthropological cycle, I suggest you book a table at Chef. Gianfranco Chiarini’s eagerly awaited new restaurant, Chiarini @ Podewils Hotel, which will open in early March 2014 on the border of the Motlawa River, on the north-western fringes of Gdansk.
Before defecting across the Motlawa River, of course, Chiarini has been one of Italy’s most celebrated chefs, known for his diversity and his daring fusions of Italian Culinary. Taking the pride and joy of Italy out of the box and making it more understandable and reachable to other foreign chefs.
Unlike other successful projects that Chef Chiarini has opened for millionaires across the globe, his new and personal creation features an almost antic and cozy, state-of-the-art kitchen, where the philosophy of “back to basics” reigns. There’s the dining room designed for only twenty four (24) lucky guests and a terrace for the summer delights, where you can hear the sound of fishes swimming in the river and the breathtaking back yard of the villa which will transport you immediately to the Baroque era where it was built.
As you would expect, there are many elaborate wine-snob options available. It is important to highlight that just like in any French reputable restaurant which only serves and promotes French wines; Chiarini as an Italian propose and promotes only Italian wines some of them under his own partner’s umbrella Chioccioli. Chioccioli is one of the most; if not the most important upcoming wine producing brands in Tuscany, Italy. The selections are top level and award winning wines for different regions and for a more complex palate, professionals and connoisseurs. All brought exclusively and imported for Chiarini by Noma; the most reputable and “Only Italian Wines” importer of Gdansk.
Beverage emphasis is also on Italian Aperitivi and Prosecco from specific premium regions of Italy and the outstanding Napolitano roasted coffee along with Award winning Polish beers, Vodkas and international spirits along with a regional selection including some exotic ones derived from Honey fermentation.
Chiarini Restaurant will be opened on the early days of March 2014 to the delight of the global audiences and demanding palates whom will love to taste a modernistic Italian approach fusion with Polish traditions and an overall 100% Natural Cuisine with an “Old School Preparation” approach.
