Project 72, Podbara

NOVI SAD | Just around the corner from Novi Sad’s old town, you’ll find a wine bar and restaurant that’s creating dishes unlike anything else you’ll find in the city. It’s Project 72, and their philosophy revolves around putting a creative, contemporary spin on classic Serbian dishes, as well as giving old, forgotten dishes a new lease of life.

Project 72’s chefs work with producers primarily in Serbia’s northern Vojvodina region, sourcing seasonal produce with a root-to-leaf and nose-to-table ethos. The main dining space is a small, welcoming area that makes use of natural materials, artwork, and trinkets. It has a cosy feel about it that matches the warm and friendly service.

Dishes include things like slow cooked veal tongue with horseradish mousse and fermented radish; oak smoked beef tartare with egg yolk gel and shallots; and venison ćevapčići. My favourite dish, and one of the most unique on the menu, is the charcoal-grilled red pepper relish ajvar, reimagined as ice cream. It’s served with crispy carob bread, goats cheese, and a seed cracker.

Wine is the main focus of the drinks menu. You’ll find a wide assortment of styles primarily sourced from independent producers in Serbia and other Balkan/Eastern European countries. Recent years have seen the region’s winemakers reviving long-forgotten native grapes, and Project 72 is a great place to try these wines. Staff are super knowledgeable, and can recommend something interesting and new to go with your dishes.
