New bistro open downtown

A unique new restaurant offering a taste of Poland opened in downtown Penticton on Wednesday.

The Polish Bistro opened its doors at 65 Nanaimo Avenue East at 11:30 a.m., and will be open for lunch and dinner daily, except on Sundays.

Owner Walter Hrynkiewicz moved with his family in January to Penticton from Thunder Bay, Ont., and said he searched several areas before choosing the location. 

He said extensive renovations were done prior to opening the 60-seat bistro.

"We offer the most popular selection of Polish cuisine... Cheddar cheese perogies, sourkraut, pork perogies, beef perogies as well as the new addition to our family of perogies, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese," Hrynkiewicz said, among other menu items.

"When I joke to customers and people that I meet in town, I tell them we take them directly to Poland without buying the airplane ticket."

While speaking to Castanet in between helping several groups, Hrynkiewicz said he was pleased with the number of people who had already come in on their opening day,

The Polish Bistro is one of several European establishments opening in Penticton this year.

Brexit, a British-inspired pub directly next door on Nanaimo Avenue opened in April. A Turkish-influenced restaurant on Lakeshore Drive, owned by the Black Sea Motel next door, is also expected to open in the fall
