Already in the title “Borsht Burger Bar” is connected what, at first glance, has nothing to do: two dishes, two characters of completely different cuisines and two spelling languages. Before the designers Natalia Sulima and Olga Gnativ set a difficult task – to mix cultures and traditions. So there was a modern fashionable cafe with the Ukrainian color “Borsch & Burger” in Kiev , but without a cliche.

In the interior, fashion trends can be traced: concrete, metal, wood, warm colors. Elements of “Ukrainianness” are made of ordinary materials, but in a new interpretation. For example, “embroidery” with a woolen thread on a pine “canvas”: the pattern is recognizable, but not an exact copy – after all, designers tried to demonstrate a fresh look at traditional ornaments, to give them a modern sound.

A warm atmosphere thanks to the use of natural materials is also presented in the wooden cafe “Penka” .

The walls of the cafe “communicate” with guests with ads written in the author’s type in the style of an old Ukrainian cursive. Implementation – Natalia Sulima

On the area of ​​one hundred and forty-eight square meters there are three zones: a hall with infographics and high seating for a quick lunch, a hall with round tables and soft armchairs for large companies, a lounge with sofas for evening rest and a weekend. An important part of the interior is an open kitchen. The owners of the cafe emphasize that they have no secrets from the guests: the dishes are prepared by a professional team – from the best Ukrainian products in perfectly clean conditions.

A dark red tint was chosen as the color accent, which is logically connected with the name of the institution. By the way, even a burger is cooked here in Ukrainian – with a beetroot cutlet
