Aubergine International

Gault&Millau's review

Chef: Ronen MERI This Israeli themed restaurant, located in the middle of the old town, distinguishes itself thanks to the carefully decorated two-storied house and the surprisingly quiet atmosphere, especially on the second floor. Ronen Meri has built a rather extensive menu, offering Mediterranean classics such as baba ganoush or falafel, but also pastas, various steaks and seafood dishes. A dish worth trying is the Israeli style seabass in a clay pot. The fish is well cooked and interestingly seasoned (black pepper, nutmeg, paprika), and goes very well with the steaming couscous. Also to be noted is the good selection of Romanian wines, many available by the glass. Discover more about Aubergine International on our new local gastronomy platform.

Zexe Zahanaua Gastronomică Icoanei

Strada Icoanei, nr. 80, Bucharest

Tradizionale

Chef: Amalia STANCIU At Zexe, the chef's mission is to revive the rich Romanian cuisine of the interwar period, a concept reflected in the urban festive dining atmosphere. This gastronomic time travel is comprised of iconic dishes, each with its imaginative and humorous story. Among the starters, you will find rarities such as bone marrow or lamb brain as well – steak tartare or white bean caviar with fried onions. The grill master then takes the stage, with a wide offering of mutton, Mangalitsa pork or spicy sausages. The oven cooked lamb shank with fried mashed potatoes and gravy, or the duck confit with cabbage or polenta are central pieces of a feast representative for the place’s philosophy.

Unico Vero

Strada Viitorului, nr. 8, Bucharest

Italiano

Chefs: Patrizia Francesca ALABISO & Geta ȘTEFĂNESCU On a quiet street in a charming part of the town lies Unico Vero, a classic neighborhood Italian restaurant in Bucharest. The cozy atmosphere of the old house and the pleasant courtyard create an enjoyable setting for both lunch and dinner. The menu is extensive yet carefully built: homemade pasta, pizza, fresh fish, seafood. The freshness of the fish, DOP products such as prosciutto crudo or parmigiano, or seasonal truffles make the difference. You may want to try the homemade paccheri – the pasta is well cooked and the octopus and grated pecorino cheese are a match to remember. The fresh European bass cooked in a salt crust or the Saltimbocca alla Romana are also very good choices. Discover more about Unico Vero on our new local gastronomy platform.

Shift Pub

Shift Pub

Strada General Eremia Grigorescu, nr. 17, Bucharest

Chef: George MANEA From the moment you step through the narrow gate into a pocket of a garden, and up to the cleverly used nooks of the cozy two-storied old villa, everything here spells liveliness and abundance. The menu is quite broad, offering quick bites like quesadillas and soups, a long list of pastas, substantial salads, meat and fish mains. Some dishes may come in a rather “home style” shape, such as the soupy spinach and mozzarella quiche, or the stubborn sugar-glazed apple that accompanies the huge Tennessee Pork Chop, but the ingredients are nice and intentions are generous. Shift is also a proper place to try cocktails or good local wines, as over 50 glasses are offered from more than 10 producers. Discover more about Shift Pub on our new local gastronomy platform.
