SquareMeal Review of Baltic (bar)

"GOOD"

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
