La Boucherie & Bistrot M.
Not too far from Kinského Gardens in Prague, there is a little corner of France with a focus on its authentic delicacies. The restaurant is renowned for its demanding and thoughtful owner and chef who takes care of the guests in person. During Easter holidays, your tastes will purr with pleasure over a roast beef served with some sauce Ravigote or a rack of lamb in a honey-thyme crust on a bed of flageolet beans. As one of the few restaurants, La Boucherie & Bistrot M. will serve a chocolate dessert – a cake with rum and passion fruit sauce. You can enjoy the four-course menu from 745 CZK without wine, for 895 CZK with wine included or you can make use of the favourable prices for two.

You can also enjoy lunch or dinner in the upstairs suite with a 360° view at the picturesque “Mother of Cities”. The local chef Marek Fichtner, also known as a judge in the cooking TV show MasterChef, is famous for his creative combinations and unusual culinary procedures. This year he prepared a five-course festive menu and throughout the evening, you will taste his rabbit terrine with watercress and red radishes, a lamb fillet with Ramson crepinette and spring potatoes or a dandelion honey sponge with violet mascarpone.
