16 Stołów (16 Tables) Restaurant is located in the heart of Lublin’s Old Town. Located in the Musician’s Tenement House at Rynek 16, the restaurant started its activity in 2011 with exactly 16 tables onboard. Today, there are definitely more than just 16 tables, and the cosy, homely interiors of the restaurant in warm beige, white and brown colours with characteristic fireplaces tempt guests not only from Lublin. The tenement house owes its name to one of the largest residents of our city – Jan from Lublin. The character of the place is emphasized primarily by the cuisine of Chef Piotr Kwiatosz. He is a traditionalist of flesh and blood, who particularly loves French cuisine, but the return to his roots, especially to regionalism and recipes hidden today only in the villages of experienced Lublin housewives, made Polish cuisine, especially the Lublin one, close to his heart. The menu is not boring, as Chef Piotr, respecting and celebrating the seasonality in his culinary kingdom, cooks according to nature and to the rhythm of the changing seasons. He prepares tasty and colorful variations from seasonal ingredients … depending on what the fields, meadows, orchards, gardens, and forests in Lublin bestow upon us. In his kitchen, he also uses meat from the Lublin region: lamb from Lublin, pork (Puławy breed), Bilgoraj goose, and fish from the regional hermitage in Poniatowa, as well as dairy and eggs from our region.
All these efforts have been appreciated as in 2016 16 Stołów Restaurant as one of three restaurants in Lublin, received the prestigious SLOW FOOD POLAND recommendation, which is of the quality and origin of products that the restaurant uses daily. Traditional Lublin and Polish cuisine, the tastes of childhood served in a modern form according to the idea of Slow Food and fusion, make the supporters of the chef Piotr Kwiatosz’s cuisine keep coming.
