Hi all - Thanks for all the helpful posts as I would have been somewhat lost without all the dialogue from CHs (as is typically true when I travel internationally). Would love any thoughts people have on the following options I have for meals in Prague, Vienna and Budapest, where I will be heading in a couple of weeks (for, sadly, far too short of a time). By way of background, girlfriend and I are both 30, live in NY, and are generally looking for Eastern European food (i.e., we can get world-class Italian food at home) with a mix of comfort restaurants and modern at any and all price points. We like places that cater to a bit younger of a crowd, as don't like feeling like we are the only people under 60 at a restaurant. With that as background..
Dinner #1: Lokal, U tri ruzi, or Red Pif
Dinner #2: Le Terroir or Bellevue (worried both of these are a bit too pricy for the quality -- anywhere more in the 40e range that is worthwhile?)
Lunch #1: Stierereck (already booked)
Lunch #2: Rudi's Beisl
Dinner #1: Gasthaus Poschl, Phoenixhof or Ofenloch
Dinner #2: Vestibul, Martin Stein, or Kutschker44
Dinner #3: Freyenstein (most likely) or Mraz and Sohn (probably more $$ than we want to spend)
Dinner #1: Cafe Pierrot or Csalagony 26
Dinner #2: Onyx or Costes
Dinner #3: Bock Bistro, Borkonyha WineKitchen or Rosensteins
Thanks for any further advice in narrowing these down!
