Owned by Czech brewer Budvar, Budvarka is a pumped-up pub. From the selection of beers to the rough-hewn wood tables, everything here is larger than life. The samples of rare Budvar brews (including a dark and a yeast beer) are worth the trip to this neighborhood alone. The food is upscale Czech grub, including an entire section of the menu meant to pair with beer, which includes potatoes cooked in lard and pickled hermelín cheese. The Flinstonian ribs are so huge that
they require special presentation on a raised metal tray. Bring an appetite or a hungry friend.
