Al fresco

Had lunch with two of my most favourite people today, Jason Cahill and Marjan Gigov. New restaurant in Vinohrady Prague 2 called Zelene Zahrada. Lovely decor and the garden in the back has a fabulous water feature complete with Koi carp and the most sedentary 3 turtles in the world. Stuck on a rock in the middle of the pond they barely moved a muscle,worth ordering a bottle of wine to see who moves first!
The food was nice and the presentation good but the food took ages to come - hopefully these glitches will iron themselves out in time. A little bit more self promotion wouldn't go amiss either - not a business card was offered so cannot even mention their web page!
On the whole a good addition to the Vinohrady area and will definitely recommend the place to the new owners at Americka 11. Building finished now and ready to move in. More details on

  2. The restaurant is truly a great place and a great addition to the neighborhood. More and more local businesses with serious ideas and products are moving into the neighborhood daily. Vinohrady truly is a place that continues to develop as the times change while keeping its amazingly old European City feel!
