Two Prague restaurants defend their Michelin stars

28 March 2018

Prague/Budapest March 27 (CTK) - Two restaurants in Prague with Czech chefs, La Degustation Boheme Bourgeoise and Field, have defended their Michelin stars, while Alcron has lost it this year, the Weber Shandwick PR agency has reported in a press release sent to CTK.

It refers to this year's edition of the prestigious French Michelin gastronomical guidebook that was officially presented in Budapest last night.

Like in the past years, in the Czech Republic, the Michelin inspectors assessed only Prague restaurants in the Czech Republic.

So far five restaurants in Prague have won a Michelin star.

The first one to get a Michelin star was Allegro restaurant in Prague's Four Seasons hotel with its Italian chef Andrea Accordi in 2008. He defended the star in the following two years.

In the meantime, Allegro ended its operation and was replaced by another restaurant in this luxurious hotel.

In 2009, Maze, originally run by famous British chef Gordon Ramsay, in Prague's Hilton Old Town hotel received a Michelin star. However, the restaurant was closed before the award was announced.

Along with stars, the Michelin Main Cities of Europe guidebook bestows Bib Gourmand awards on restaurants offering "exceptional meals for a reasonable prize." Six restaurants in Prague are listed as such: Divinis, Eska, Maso a Kobliha (Meat and Doughnut), Na Kopci, Sansho and for the first time this year Bistrot 104. On the contrary, SaSaZu and Aureole have lost the Bib Gourmand mention.

A total of 33 Czech restaurants were assessed in this year's Main Cities of Europe Michelin guidebook, which is fewer than last year, but four new ones appeared there, such as Bistrot 104, CottoCrudo (in the Four Seasons Hotel), Cafe Savoy and Lokal Inn, Weber Shandwick said in its press release.
