When Bistro Praha reopened in their new location, I was excited. I tried getting a table with no reservations on a Thursday evening but was sadly turned away. Undeterred, we made reservations and ended up having a very delightful summertime date at Bistro Praha.
I've never eaten at their old location but have heard so many good things about this place. Sitting down, I notice the old-school feel of the decor and loved how 'homey' it felt.
The menu is quite simple and not overwhelming with choices. We selected their specialties:
Raw filet mignon scraped, exquisitely spiced, garnished, served with rye bread toast. A dish of true gourmet.
Selected cut filled with shaved ham and Edam cheese; an unforgettable experience, served with potato salad, lemon and Small Green or Tomato Onion salad
I must say... the wiener schnitzel was good but the steak tartare was amazing. If you have no qualms about eating raw meat, then you MUST order this dish. The rye bread was crunchy and slightly chewy and complimented the steak SO well. You get a salad with your meal (simple green salad - romaine lettuce, shaved mozza, and vinaigrette or a tomato/onion salad)
The service could be better (we waited until the end of the dinner for them to finally refill our water) but the food came out quickly.
I would go back, but most likely for a glass of wine and the steak tartare!
