Lutnia Continental Cafe Restaurant Review

: It’s chill at Lutnia, though a bit dated with its tablecloths and faux flowers. In its glory days, this may have been among the most interesting, inviting Polish restaurants this side of Warsaw. That said, it remains a rare breed. Try the pork tenderloin with mushroom ragoût or venison with hunter’s gravy, and you will note that this is not your standard pierogi and potato pancake place (even if they are on the menu). Occasional live piano music is another pleasantry. It’s more expensive than the run-of-the-mill Polish establishment, but dining here generally proves worth the money.
