Pan Seared Cod

Hospoda Review

The word may mean "pub" in Czech, but this chic Upper East Side, Central Europe–inspired spot is far from the dingy Prague drinking holes of years past. On the ground floor of the Bohemian National Hall, a Czech cultural center, the interior is dominated by artsy, backlit wall engravings, while in the kitchen Chef Oldrich Sehajdak, who has been at the forefront in revolutionizing Czech cuisine at Prague's acclaimed restaurant La Degustation, has created a menu of updated European and Czech fare. Pork belly paired with scallops and duck with butternut squash are a couple of the standout dishes here. The Pilsner Urquell, shipped in air-conditioned containers from the brewery in Plzen, is especially delicious here. Remember to say "Na zdravi," cheers in Czech, before your first sip.
