There is a restaurant in Bucharest that my friends told me about on my recent trip to Romania, called Pot Stories. It’s a place filled with natural fabrics, thick carpets, an abundance of greenery and ceramics, rough wooden tables, and rope and wicker. There are also creative textile elements, such as woven wallhangings and even a large crocheted granny square blanket on display. The main room features an impressive stone bar and beautiful wood and rope chairs, and all around, there is a magical atmosphere reminiscent of rustic beach houses along the sea. The cuisine is a wonderful mixture of Greek, Macedonian and Mediterranean influences: a love haiku of salmon and misou; a vegetarian curry calembour; baby calamari with semolina and chili peppers, just to name a few of the delectable dishes on offer. Located at Calea Floareasca 111-113.
