Chef Radek Kašpárek from the Field restaurant stated that the fifth defense of the Michelin star is a confirmation that the company managed to succeed in a difficult period and maintained its quality. According to the chef of the second awarded restaurant, Oldřich Sahajdák, thanks to the guide and staff.
“Prague offers something for it and the ever-diverse selection of restaurants expands its dynamic culinary scene. Many of these restaurants are located outside the city center: modern establishments that reflect the modern spirit of Prague while respecting the country’s culinary traditions, ”wrote Gwendal Poullennec, the international director of guides.
Kašpárek thanked the co-owner of the restaurant Miroslav Nosk for their support, according to him last year was the most difficult since the opening of the company. He has been a co-owner of the restaurant since 2014. “We were closed for half a year and we managed to keep our great team, I am proud of that. I am very happy with the defense, thank you to all my colleagues, the star is for everyone, “said the chef.
Sahajdák’s team is happy with the award. “We thank the Michelin Guide for giving us the star again. And the second thanks goes to our employees, who do a great job, “he added.
So far, five Prague restaurants have won the Michelin star
Five more Prague restaurants were included in the Michelin selection in the category called “good quality at a good price”. The position was defended by Na Kopci, Divinis and Eska. The Eatery and Dejvická 34 have been added. On the other hand, Sansho chef Paul Day no longer appears in it.
Prague won the Michelin star for the first time in 2008, when it boasted the Allegro restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel and its chef Andrea Accordi. He received a star for Allegro three times. The company has since ceased to exist.
In 2009, the star at the Hilton Hotel of the famous British chef Gordon Ramsay also received a star, but it disappeared before the award was announced. Alcron held the star from 2012 before losing it in 2018. In total, five Prague restaurants have won the star so far.
One star Michelin indicates a very good restaurant in its category, two stars excellent cuisine that is worth a visit, and three stars exceptional cuisine that is worth a special trip. Prague restaurants have never received more than one star in one evaluation.
