Restaurants in Romania run the gamut, but tend to be a bit less sophisticated than more touristy European countries. In Bucharest, you'll find everything from ambitious chef's serving up haute cuisine to organic fare in airy lofts. Elsewhere, Romania's peasant tradition is strongly reflected, and your best bet is to seek out more traditional eateries, where hearty meat-and-vegetable-based dishes show influences from nearby Greece, Turkey, and Bulgaria, and cake-based desserts are spiced and stuffed with apples, prunes, or nuts. It’s all best washed down with a glass of Romanian wine or the traditional plum brandy.
