We chose Prologue as the next restaurant stop during the trip to Tri-City. It is located on the bank of the Motława river in Gdansk and Head Chef is here Wojciech Korfel (@wojciechkorfel).
Prologue is an inconspicuous restaurant with an unusual cuisine. There is no tasting menu, so you have to choose what you like, and we liked it quite a lot, so we barely got out of the Prologue. The dishes are characterized by simplicity and intensity of flavors. They are made with great technique with great care.
Rye bread on sourdough and smoked butter with chives. 3 eggplants.
Polish herring with dill sauce and apple
Light and delicious amuse-bouche, which looked lovely. 4 eggplants.
The first appetizer we ordered turned out to be a great success. Great tartar sprinkled with cress with wild garlic mayonnaise and pickled celery. 4 eggplants.
Grilled Kashubian asparagus/Prologue Chorizo/dressing with roasted butter and elderberry capers
Another appetizer. Springy green asparagus with salty Chorizo. Since we use little salt every day, it was a bit too salty for us. 3 eggplants.
Marinated avocado/organic smoked salmon/turnip
Cold appetizer made of salmon. Excellent seasoned dish with crispy strips of white turnip and marinated avocado. 3 eggplants.
Intermezzo looked like edible moss. It was the lemon coconut Panna Cotta with green tea powder. 4 eggplants.
Egg yolk ravioli/baby broccoli/forest shoots dressing/mushroom duxelle/aged Parmesan
The dough and filling, especially the liquid yolk, was very tasty. The taste of shoots and mushrooms was a bit too intense for me, but it looked beautiful. The forest on a plate. 3 eggplants.
Japanese Wagyu Beef steak. Precisely, It was steak from Gunma Toriyama Umami Wagyu with score A5 Grade and 10-12 Beef Marble Score. 5 eggplants.
The best fries we ever ate, Prologue kimchi, hollandaise sauce and mushroom ketchup were served as steak additives. Also a beautiful Laguiole knife was served to cut this noble meat.
Chocolate fondant with lavender/wild rose petals sorbet
I don’t like desserts, but it’s impossible to give this one a lower grade. Perfectly balanced with brilliant ice cream, which was so incredibly rosy and delicate that I could eat it forever. The fondant itself was also wonderful, with a liquid, warm interior. 5 eggplants.
Ice cream that I absolutely fell in love with. I already miss them.
Kashubian strawberries/tea panna cotta/candied pine cones
I still claim that I don’t like desserts, but I ate it all because it was wonderful. What’s interesting, I don’t like strawberries either, and these were amazing. And the pine cones, which gave a strong accent, but they did not dominate this light dessert. 5 eggplants.
After lunch we had the opportunity to talk to the Head Chef for a while, which was a great pleasure for us. It is soo great to meet such talented people.
The service in the restaurant was very friendly and professional.
The whole lunch cost us, for two people, a little over 600 PLN, Of which 365 PLN cost the Wagyu steak alone, but in my opinion it was worth it. It was the steak that we liked the most and delicious desserts.
We are looking forward to our next trip to Gdansk and visiting the Prologue restaurant, and in the meantime, of course I grant this very satisfying dinner the Happy Eggplant badge.
