THE FOUR ROOMS OF MRS SAFIJA MENTIONED IN THE NY TIMES
Sarajevo’s circuitous history lesson begins with dinner at 4 Sobe Gospode Safije (the Four Rooms of Mrs Safija), which occupies a house built in 1910, during the city’s 40-year Hapsburg Empire epoch, by an Austrian count for a local woman named Safija. Their cross-cultural love was taboo, but this Bosnian-European restaurant, restored to early-20th-century splendor and filled with period pieces, is routinely shortlisted among the city’s best. Pair the grilled veal with rosemary and anchovy sauce (28 Bosnian convertible marks, or KM, $20 at 1.40 convertible marks to the dollar) or the sea bass with ginger (21 KM) and a bottle of local red Blatina (35 to 65 KM) or white Zilavka (35 to 45 KM).
