Restaurant, Polish, $$$
Baltic Restaurant is housed in an 18th-century former coach builder’s works and although redesigned, the original character is beautifully retained, resulting in a stunning atmosphere. The 40 foot wooden trussed ceilings, skylights, and clean lines make dining at Baltic a very classy experience. They specialise in Eastern and Central European cuisines, including the soups, pickled fish and dumplings of Poland. Baltic is ideally located for dining after long strolls on the South Bank, as well as the Old and Young Vic theaters. The restaurant offers pre-theater and set lunch menus in addition to a daily à la carte. The bar serves over 70 varieties of vodka all served straight from the deep freeze in frozen glasses, many of which are their own blends.
