Kyiv Connoisseurs Enjoy Black Market
The Ukrainian Connoisseurs Club (TUCC) visited Black Market restaurant in Kyiv’s Parus Business Centre building for an end-of-summer dining event in late August. Although Black Market is a new venue, the restaurant’s Head Chef Viktor Tymchyshyn is familiar to TUCC members as his previous restaurant earned a five-star rating. He is also a previous TUCC Chef of the Year winner. This created high expectations, and Black Market delivered with a five-star performance. Viktor’s cuisine was not the only secret to this success. The wine selection was admirably presented by sommelier Julia Ignatuk. However, what was really impressive and distinct was the way the waiting staff marched in unison to each individual table to serve the courses. This professional precision continued throughout the meal, whether serving the wines or clearing the tables. Restaurant Manager Olga Kovalchuk must surely take the credit for orchestrating this immaculate waiting service, probably the best the TUCC has ever experienced in its 15-year history.
