Restaurant Review: PIRE SLOW FOOD

ABOUT:
Prica o restoranu Pire Slow Food pocinje i zavrsava se sa Crêpe Suzette ili, kako to njihov racun kaze - Creppes Susette. Iskoristila sam da lepu priliku obelezim deljenjem jedne porcije ovih magicnih puterastih zesty francuskih palacinki. Ali, idemo od pocetka.
SERVICE:
Tamo su uvek fini, jednostavni, nasmeseni, na usluzi. Uvek zuje i snimaju situaciju, sve tiho i elegantno funkcionise. Jelovnik se menja s vremena na vreme, a osoblje je uvek upuceno, obuceno i zainteresovano da pomogne, objasni i saceka da se odlucite. A sam bog zna da je meni ovo poslednje vrlo potrebno.



FOOD: Hrana divna. Simple clean good food. Dok smo ziveli u kraju, svako malo smo vidjali utovar novih malih kolicina svezih namirnica, posebno probranih i maksimalno dobro, pametno i znalacki iskoriscenih. Kada trazite potaz od karfiola to cete upravo i dobiti. Simple as that. Add a dash of pepper ako volite.

Pre klope, preporucujem pravi caj od nane. Sasvim blago obojena premirisna topla voda greje dusu, ukorenjuje. A onda - narudzbina. Ja svaki put izaberem nesto drugo, inace ne volim postavku "za mene - standardno". Ako ste mojih kapaciteta, jedna salata i jedan pire bice vam odlicna baza za nadolazeci magicni dezert. Nesto blaza kombinacija, salata sa spanacem, avokadom i listicima badema plus pire sa celerom ili onaj sa bosiljkom - a la Lokica (da, da, Stefanovic). Cezar salata je njihov klasik, specificna po tome sto je standardna piletina zamenjena divnim kockicama lososa. Uz Cezar salatu, pire sa safranom ili mozda sa tartufima. Domacim, srpskim, zamislite. Sigurno niste ni znali da ih ima i ovde. Jednom trgovanju tartufima u restoranu Pire imala sam srece da prisustvujem. Mmmmm...




DESIGN: Pa, s obzirom da je ovo restoran Dragane Ognjenovic, da li ste ocekivali ista manje od divnog. Cisto belo, kao da je Ula, svedska sekretarica Producenata Maksa Bijalistoka i Lio Bluma, obigrala jedan krug. Na prvi pogled mozda cak i malo upscale odbojno, u smislu da ja, na primer, nisam dugo smela da primirisem jer sam mislila da je ovo mesto out of my price range. Ali ne, evo jednog racuna u prilogu. Tu vam je i adresa i telefon.

Kvadratasti escajg, sezonski dekor u prostoru, beli Tord Boonjte lusteri (kod nas ih mozete kupiti u KUBO-u u Visnjicevoj), d.o.home posudje (koje mozete kupiti u obliznjoj radnji u Kneza Sime Markovica), meni narocito drazesne solje sa koralom iz prethodne kolekcije... Pa drveni, u belo premalan pod i kredenci, plus - exposed brick wall, bela polica sa mnogo fake belih knjiga i gomilica kul casopisa za listati narocito ako ste solo svratili na quick bite.




I na kraju - Crêpe Suzette ili Creppes Susette. Kako god. They're magnificent. I uz njih, kafa s mlekom servirana u pomenutoj koralnoj solji. A uz kafu, na tacnici - gomilica minijaturnih zvezdica kolacica. Pa mislim... stvaaarno.




OVERALL:
Dodjite u neko off vreme (sa minimalnim brojem stalnih selebriti gostiju) i temeljno se pozabavite jelovnikom. Imena i cene su slozeni centralno pa jos i spacionirana, pa je sve malo teze graspovati. Samo lagano, take your time. Sta god da narucite, uziiiivacete.

ABOUT:
The story about the Pire Slow Food starts and ends with Crêpe Suzette, or, as stated on the receipt - Creppes Susette. I used one nice occasion to split one portion of these magical butterish zesty French crêpes. But, let’s start from the beginning.

SERVICE:
People there are always nice, simple, smiling, at your service. They are always in a rush and they scan the situation, everything functions quietly and elegantly. The menu is changed from time to time, and the staff is always in the know, trained, interested in helping you, explain and wait for you to decide. And god knows that I need the last so very much.

FOOD:
Food – wonderful. Simple clean good food. While we lived in the neighborhood, every once in a while we would see the shipping of the new small amounts of fresh foodstuffs, carefully selected, shipped in, and ultimately well, smart and knowledgably used. When you ask for cauliflower pottage, that is exactly what you will get. Simple as that. Add a dash of pepper if you like.

Before the food, I recommend the real mint tea. Just mildly colored water of super-scent warms up the soul, sets the roots. And then – the order. I choose something different every time, in general I do not like the “standard order” thing. If you are of my capacities, one salad and one mashed potatoes portion will be an excellent base for the upcoming desert. Somewhat lighter combination, the spinach, avocado and almond leaves salad plus mashed potatoes with celery or with basil – a la Lokica (yes, yes, Stefanovic). Caesar salad is their classic, specific for the typical chicken being replaced with wonderful little squares of salmon. With Caesar salad, the mashed potatoes with saffron or maybe with truffles. Local, Serbian, imagine that. I’m sure you didn’t even know you can find them here. I was lucky enough to witness one of the truffles trades in Pire restaurant. Mmmmm…

DESIGN:
Well, considering the fact that this is Dragana Ognjenovic’s restaurant, did you expect anything less than magnificent? Clean white, as if Ula, the Swedish secretary of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom’s The Producers, made a circle around. Even a bit upscale repelling, meaning that I for example, did not dare to come close for a long time, because I thought this place is out of my price range. But no, here is one receipt disclosed. You’ll also find the address and the phone number on it.

Square-shaped cutlery, seasonal interior decoration, white Tord Boontje chandeliers (here you can buy them in KUBO in Visnjiceva Street), D.O. home dishes (which you can buy in the nearby store in Kneza Sime Markovica Street), to me particularly enchanting cups with the coral from previous collection… And then the wooden, colored in white floors and cupboards, plus – exposed brick wall, white shelf with many fake white books and a little pile of cool magazines to flip through, especially if you dropped by on your own for a quick bite.

And in the end - Crêpe Suzette or Creppes Susette. Whatever. They're magnificent. And with them, a coffee with milk served in the above mentioned cup. And with the coffee, on the little plate – a little pile of miniature star-cookies. I mean reeeally…

OVERALL:
Come at some off time (with the minimal number of regular celebrity guests) and deal thoroughly with the menu. The names and the prices are centrally aligned, and additionally spaced, so it is all a bit hard to grasp. Just slowly, take your time. No matter what you order, you’ll enjooooy.
