The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Hunt for Obscure Wines in Prague


2. Where to Eat

Le Terroir  

If you’ve got a yen for fried cheese three-ways or pork knee cooked in beer (and who doesn't sometimes?), head to Pivnice U Sadu in the working-class hood of Zizkov. Definitely more of a beer than a wine place, the restaurant’s ceiling is hung with everything from milk cans to typewriters

The décor at Perpetuum may be a bit Ikea-heavy, but the wine list is well chosen, the crowd blessedly tourist-free, and the honey-drizzled sliced duck with bacon soufflé phenomenal.

For less grease, head back to the civilized Malastrana and Scandinavian-styled Cukrkávalimonáda for imaginative savory pancakes. Try the caprese version, topped with tomato, fresh basil, olives, and olive oil.

Le Terroir, a cozy Francophile restaurant smack in the Old Town, has a fantastic wine list, the only drawback being the temptation to drink the fabulous Sauvignon from France's Jura region instead of a local Moravian Riesling.
