Kantýna — Prague, Czech Republic
Never ones to disappoint, Prague restaurant specialists, Ambiente have launched another innovative winner, this time merging two of its established concepts – a butcher and a steak restaurant – to create one meat-focused emporium.
Occupying a former Ringhoffer bank, the restaurant’s elaborate 19th-century setting, with original murals and figurative sculptures by Czech art nouveau sculptor Jan Štursa, has called for a simple design from architect Rudolf Netík to include custom-designed furniture and copper lighting that mirrors the shapes of the tables.
The highlight is the central blue quartz bar, which provides the perfect setting to sample casual dishes such as beef tartar or even a burger. But for the full steak experience, take a seat in the restaurant or perhaps grab a cut to go from the onsite butcher.
