Our Review

If you thought there was no such thing as Polish fine dining, then you haven't been to Lutnia. They serve many upscale non-Polish dishes (their Caesar salad and duck flambé with orange sauce get raves), but traditional dishes also have an elegant flair. The soups are rich -- like the hot-and-sweet beet soup with sauerkraut dumplings or the hunter's stew, a concoction of cabbage, beef, veal, sausage, mushrooms, and wine -- and the potato dumplings are full of delicious homemade lumps. Although you might want to clean your plate, try to save room for the luscious desserts on the cart. And treat yourself to the Polish coffee, prepared tableside with honey liqueur.
