Dalmatia in My Eye
No matter whether you’re Dalmatian at heart, a Dalmatian who wears a chain around his neck, a true Zagrebian who pretends to be Dalmatian over the summer or a regular passer-by, you’ll be happy to hear (if by any chance you already don’t know) that Zagreb temporarily “houses” a restaurant where you can choose between a Split or a Zagreb menu, depending on how you feel that day. Genuine Torcida or Bad Blue Boys might be reeling with disbelief now, but if someone offered them a free top-quality meal, we’re sure they’d rush to Paradigma, a Split restaurant that has moved to Zagreb over the winter, without hesitation.
A reasonable decision of manager Zoran Pejović – considering the (regretful) fact that the capital of Dalmatia attracts few foreigners in the winter months – who moved his entire team and inventory to Vlaška 55, where they’ll stay until mid-April, when he returns to his town. Seize this opportunity and mix your Mediterranean and continental feelings – visit Paradigma and try something from the rich offer consisting of degustation menus with 3 or 4 courses for lunch and 5 or 8 courses for dinner.
You can pair it all with some wine from the extensive wine chart or follow the recommendation of chief sommelier. And image yourself sitting at a terrace by the sea, envisioning summer and the waves slowly rolling under the sun.
It’s good to know!
Paradigma is a member of the European Association of Young Chefs Jeune Restaurateur d’Europe. It opened its door for guests in July 2014, and it is part of the Paradox Hospitality group, which also runs the famous Split locales, Paradox Wine & Cheese Bar and Creme de la Crème patissery.
