Located on a quiet cobblestoned street near the Tyn Church, this cozy Italian wine bar is owned by Czech celebrity chef Zdeněk Pohlreich. The homelike interior, designed by Italian architect Luciano Belcapo, balances dark hardwood floors and simple furniture with whimsical touches like colorful wooden butterflies and a ceiling decorated with oversize utensils. Bookcases are lined with magazines, books, and bottles from the extensive wine list, which includes selections from more than 10 regions in Italy. Combining fresh local ingredients with simple recipes, the menu features dishes like grilled octopus with arugula salad and braised veal cheeks with Marsala wine.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
