Prague’s transformation after communism occurred not just in major ways but in minor ones as well. If there is a barometer of social change it is surely in a country’s cuisine, the most direct and tangible measure.
The Alcron is a one Michelin star amethyst Art Deco style jewel at the Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel Prague. Helmed by Roman Paulus, the restaurant is an interesting juxtaposition of waiters in tailcoats and menu items like maltodextrin chocolate dirt scattered amongst chanterelle mushroom puree and green pea ravioli with confit of rabbit loin – old school service and new wave cuisine with a nod to Czech classics. I delight in mixing and matching courses from the cold and hot menu and pairing them with wines 700 bottle list. The highlight of my evening is undoubtedly the ‘dessert painting.’ Chefs Lucia
Gregušovà and Drahomír Peterka stroll out a tableside cart in glorious ceremony, and assemble its contents Jackson Pollock style on a thick glass plate. It is high artistry created before me.
