Hello fellow chowhounders! NYC hound here headed to Eastern Europe. Soon. We are literally planning this trip on the fly. We'll be spending several days in Prague and Budapest, driving down into Transylvania (or taking a train there and on to Bucharest, still in the planning phase).
In Prague, we're staying at the Hotel Aria. In Budapest at the Sofitel. Not sure yet for Bucharest. Planning the usual tourist pursuits, once I figure out what those are... in other words, help!
Where should we EAT? Any suggestions for those three cities? I've been searching the boards but I'm getting overwhelmed and the trip is so soon! It sounds like lokal is a great idea in Prague. And we should definitely hit the covered market in Budapest.
I'd like to do a day trip out of Prague to Pilzn or out of Budapest to wine country - have y'all had any experience with either place? Good idea?
Thanks for any help you can provide!!!
-grateful in NYC
