Squaremeal Review of Baltic (bar) ?

Returning patrons visiting the destination bar at Baltic, Jan (Ognisko) Woroniecki’s popular Eastern European restaurant, will be hard pushed to discern any difference following its autumn 2015 relaunch – a scatter cushion here, a table there =. What is new is a stronger focus on bar snacks by new head chef Piotr Fortuna and a turbo-charged cocktail list that majors on vodka-based drinks. We’re always captivated by Baltic’s flavoured vodka and Martini list; Beetroot Martini is a fave fallback, while the Beluga Transatlantic Martini is as deadly a Russian assassin as 007 ever took on. We also like Clubland – a 1930s sophisticate that combines Polish Potocki rye vodka, white port and bitters; vodka and spiced pear ‘Mojito’ (also available by the £30 jug), and Krupnik grapefruit and chilli sour (£8.50). Sidecar, Bramble and numerous other alternatives will satisfy vodka-averse souls. Pick at blinis; dumplings; placki (potato pancakes) with spiced chicken livers or beef and sausage goulash; veal and cabbage croquettes, and meat and seafood platters from £17 from a menu nailing the lie that Eastern European cuisine equals Soviet-era stodge.

Attended with some clients and was a little worried upon arrival as the main bar was very busy, once we were through to the restaurant we were quickly seated and had a very enjoyable wholesome meal. The atmosphere means there is always something going on and I was pleased with the speed of our service given the number of diners. Not quite fine dining, yet a good place to eat and drink
