AleGloria combines new philosophy, new aesthetics and new insight into flavours that have been unfairly neglected in the past years. Throughout this inspiring marriage I have rediscovered the culinary art of Young Poland and I aim at presenting these somewhat forgotten flavours in a new, contemporary style to all my Guests visiting the restaurant. In the brightly lit interiors, full of strawberry trees and geese running around the wooden floors, you will find Polish culinary art at its best. It is the perfect combination of the forgotten world and modern culinary ideas, dominated by the best Polish products. It is my response to the inane globalism which is flooding Poland. It is delicious… in AleGloria!
