Prague Review (mostly high-end)

estufarian | Jul 30, 201803:44 PM    

We visited Prague last month (second visit) and found the food scene a bit less exciting than the first time, although still generally worth a visit.

Top place for me was Field – which certainly seemed French influenced (rather than Czech) and had a lighter touch with most dishes. Service was certainly the most attentive of all the places we visited. But generally safe rather than exciting. But the ingredients were well-prepared so, although I would have preferred a more local emphasis, I can’t criticise them for something they weren’t trying to do. But not really Czech cuisine, although they certainly feature some Czech wines among their pairings.

My favourite of the ‘Czech’ places was V Zatisi (which I returned to – the star of my previous visit). They feature 3 different tasting menus- essentially a ‘more traditional’ menu; a ‘more modern menu’; and an Indian menu – which just seemed out-of-place. But there were 3 of us, so we opted for all three. And each came with different wine pairings (almost totally Czech wines). The Indian dishes were only mildly spiced, so are really aimed at people who don’t usually consume Indian food.

The Czech dishes were more successful – both the ‘Czech’ menu and the ‘V Zatisi’ menu were mixed – I probably preferred the Czech – mainly because of the apple strudel dessert, which was outstanding, with a perfect balance between sweet and sour – unlike most I tried on the trip which were just too sweet.

We also visited La Degustation Boheme Bourgeoise, which used to get a lot of love on this Board, but only offers a single tasting menu – competent but no wows.

On the lighter side, for lunch (or possibly a more raucous evening) consider U Flecku, which is a traditional beer garden in a tree-covered interior courtyard, that is quite an oasis and offers some traditional foods. Just be aware that hey troll around with pre-poured drinks, so be a bit cautious as your bill can easily mount up (these are NOT complimentary).
