MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
This wickedly stylish “house” is exactly what River North needed to shake it up—a truly unique restaurant serving delicious Czech, Austrian and Hungarian cuisines. The stunning beer hall-meets-art nouveau space (with reclaimed wood beams, tiles arching over a semi-open kitchen, sky-blue leather couches and Persian rugs) is worth a visit alone. No detail is overlooked. Delightfully, the food delivers on all points and is just as pretty to look at. Don't miss the open-faced schnitzel sandwich, highlighting pork over apple and kohlrabi slaw, aged Gouda, a fried egg and coarse mustard. Also a must do? The warm blueberry kolacky, which is a classic Czech cookie filled with blueberry coulis and served with lemon curd as well as blueberry-sour cream ice cream.
