NEIGH­BOUR­HOOD WATCH

Business Traveller - - FOOD & DRINK -

Partly at­tracted by more af­ford­able rents, eater­ies are open­ing in the post-in­dus­trial in­ner ar­eas of Kar­lín and Smí­chov, and Vi­nohrady just be­yond the cen­tre. “Vi­no­hardy has al­ways been an af­flu­ent area, and restau­rants thrive when lo­cals have money for ac­tiv­i­ties such as din­ing,” ex­plains Jan Va­lenta.

Restau­rants in all these three ar­eas of­fer value, in­for­mal­ity, and Czech and in­ter­na­tional dishes. In Kar­lín, good names in­clude Ne­jen Bistro and Podolka Kar­lín. In Vi­nohrady, wine con­nois­seur and tourism op­er­a­tor Is­abelle du Plessix rec­om­mends break­fast favourite Mezi srnky and longer es­tab­lished U Bulínů: “an au­then­tic Czech restau­rant with nice am­bi­ence.” She also ad­vo­cates Na Kopci in Smí­chov for great value.

In­ner area farm­ers’ mar­kets, such as at Jiřího z Poděbrad or Ku­lat’ák by De­jvická metro sta­tion also en­joy huge pop­u­lar­ity, show­cas­ing the wares of food pro­duc­ers from jam-mak­ers to spe­cial­ity bak­ers.
