Today, Eater heads to Zagreb, Croatia, to call out nine of the buzziest newcomers to the city’s suddenly booming dining scene. Locally based restaurant writer and editor Marcella Veneziale has graciously offered up her picks of the hottest openings of the last year or so.
“Zagreb’s restaurant scene is more exciting than ever thanks to a flurry of new openings that shows no sign of letting up,” says Veneziale. “Chefs and restaurateurs are more willing to experiment, whether that’s through the food they serve or the format they favor. Visitors to the Croatian capital can dine on Latin-inspired cuisine while taking in live music (Fidel Gastro), nibble on prosciutto and cheese while sipping sommelier-approved wine (Pupitres Bar), and please vegans and carnivores at the same spot (Veganšpek).”
Also among her picks are a bubbles and burger mashup (50 A Burger & Champagne Bar), a French-style bakery with Instagram-worthy desserts (Time Pastry Shop), and a laid-back nightcap option right next to the botanical gardens (Botaničar).
