Sublime wine, sublime pizza


This blog tries to be useful when it can. This is an example. I scarcely ever go to bars but my friend Claudia took me to perhaps my favourite, the lovely Bruno's, in the old town at Str. Covaci 3, where I once projected a birthday party, and introduced me to the most wonderful wine, Bauer Cabernet Sauvignon. Chalky perfection.

Buy a case, people.

In return I introduced her to the best pizza outside Naples - from that amazing shop on the corner of Lipscani and the boulevard. Do go there.

The only place in Bucharest that serves comparably good food is Ido Memos, a Turkish dive founded in 1990 on the corner of A.I. Cuza and Dr. Felix, and two or three expensive restaurants like Uptown or Ici et La.

  1. Despite the nauseating hipsterness of the place, Energiea (Strada Actor Ion Brezoianu 4) makes the best rose lemonade I have ever had. They told me they use real rose petals (the edible kind, like what they grow in Bulgaria). It's definitely a huge treat in the summer. I would also recommend a "bors de cocos" from Doi Cocosi, but it's a bit out of the way (Șoseaua București-Târgoviște 8). I have no affiliation with either place, but I was impressed enough by them to recommend them here - especially the rose lemonade. It might be seasonal (only during the warmer months).
