Linea / Closer To The Moon
Vegans, step aside. Linea is pretty much for meat lovers. New places get trendy real fast, so back to rule #1: Always Make A Reservation. As you exit the elevator on the 4th floor of the Interbelic building, the first thing you’ll notice is the big, bustling char & grill kitchen (thank goodness, it’s enclosed). Stretching over the full length of the building, the dining space and bar are impressive, with a nice modern design. If you’re into beef and really hungry, go for the brisket, a one-of-a kind experience in Bucharest. Burgers rate pretty high, and the wine list has some very nice and quite fancy offerings. One floor up is Closer to the Moon, the new contender in the raging Bucharest Rooftops War. Stretching over a narrow but seemingly endless terrace, lined with a loooooong mural by Bucharest graffiti artists Sweet Damage Crew, Closer to the Moon offers a stunning view of western Bucharest and the Parliament (yes, sunsets do get awesome here). This winter, the rooftop is host to a dozen private heated igloos (more like small transparent plastic domes), where you can enjoy a drink or eat closer to the skies. Don’t expect to find one unless you’ve made a reservation. But once you’re in, come rain or snow, just text the waiter your order. Titania here, bring on the ţuica fiartă!
