Mandragora is a Jewish-style restaurant located in the Old Town of Lublin, Poland. The restaurant offers a very colorful and intimate atmosphere full of warmth and aroma of klezmer music together with the smell of Jewish dishes. Many of the ingredients and served wines are specially imported from Israel and are certified as kosher.
From the Middle Ages, Jews made up a significant part of the community of Lublin where they established the Talmudic Academy and a Hebrew printing house in the 16th century. The city was also an important center of Hasidic Judaism – a mystical branch of Judaism.
Mandragora restaurant serves as an unlikely echo of prewar Lublin, known before the Holocaust as “the Jerusalem of Poland” because of its 40,000 Jewish residents.
