This wickedly stylish “house” is exactly what River North needed to shake it up—a truly unique restaurant serving delicious Czech, Austrian, and Hungarian cuisines. The stunning beer hall-meets-art nouveau interior (think reclaimed wood beams, stunning tiles arching over a semi-open kitchen, sky-blue tufted leather couches, and Persian rugs) is worth a visit alone. No detail is overlooked. Delightfully, the food is amazingly tasty and just as pretty to look at. Don't miss the open-faced schnitzel sandwich, highlighting juicy pork over apple and kohlrabi slaw, aged Gouda, a fried egg, and drizzle of coarse mustard. Also a must do? The warm blueberry kolacky, a traditional Czech cookie filled with blueberry coulis and served with lemon curd and blueberry-sour cream ice cream.
