The past few months in Prague have seen some delicious new openings offering enough comfort food, international eats, and rich desserts to enjoy in the cold months ahead. From casual eats to new date night picks, get ready to eat your way through autumn in the Czech capital.

Sushirrito Prague

Sushirrito Bistro is a new spot in the city offering not only staples of Japanese-American fusion cuisine like sushi, sashimi and poke bowls, but also sushi burritos. A 2008 creation of San Francisco fast casual restaurant Sushirrito chef Peter Yen, this concept that GQ describes as a "miniature open-ended burrito" first won over the U.S., before making its way to Prague eateries.

The founder of Sushirrito Bistro Kuba, who only goes by his first name Kuba, fell in love with sushi burritos and other similar street food during his stay in New Zealand and Australia. In addition to being a foodie, his credentials include being head sushi manager for six years at the Kobe Restaurants in Prague.

Prostor UM

Prostor UM is not a restaurant but a space for cooking enthusiasts, whose mission is to "rediscover, define, create and record the tradition of Central European cuisine."

Their upcoming courses include Tapping School, where master bartender Lucía Janečková will teach you how to properly pour a glass of beer, as well as the differences between types of pours; a course with Myšák's pastry chef Lukáš Pohl teaching you to work with puffed dough and prepare a yolk wreath and a caramel pinwheel; and Barista, an occasion to practice making coffee under the guidance of experienced barista Dušan Pavelka.

You can check out the upcoming pop-ups and cooking classes directly on their website.

FEATURED EMPLOYERS

Matoka Georgian Bakery

The self-styled "Khachapuri Kings in Prague," Matoka bakery makes "traditional Georgian goodies" such as khachapuri – a traditional type of bread filled with cheese, meat, and vegetables – and khinkali – meat-filled dumplings. In addition to their Prague bistro, the Georgian chefs also sell their delicious pastries at a newly-opened address in Karlovy Vary.

SILQ Restaurant

SILQ Restaurant is an Asian fusion restaurant that offers a combination of dishes from across the Silk Road, a mix reflected in the eclectic interior design of its location.

The menu doesn’t only include Japanese dishes, but also an abundance of delicacies going from Southeast Asia all the way to the Mediterranean countries. 

Think fresh prawn roll, an Indonesian delicacy, and Manakeesh with Zaatar, a Lebanese dish of homemade flat bread baked on taboon with zaatar, cucumber, tomatoes and labneh cheese; or chicken Tajine from Morocco, and Masaman Curry from Thailand, all under one roof.

Oh Deer Bakery Florenc

Since its launch in 2017, the Czech chain of bakeries Oh Deer Bakery continues to grow exponentially and open more and more venues in Prague. Their new location at Florenc is another great example of local businesses growing and finding success.

The proof is in their delicious cronuts (a hybrid of croissants and donuts) with a range of different flavors – from blueberries and mango to salted caramel and Raffaello; cakes or varieties of Italian bombolone (an Italian-filled doughnut).

Malika Indian Restaurant

Malika, a new Indian restaurant in Prague’s Vinohrady, offers beloved staples of Indian cuisine like chicken tikka masala, biryani, or naan and samosa. Their offerings include vegetarian and meat dishes, ranging from mild to extra spicy flavors.

William Thomas Bakery

Originating in Brno, the William Thomas Bakery is ready to open its doors to Prague foodies. The bakery is the passion project of two friends "who missed honest artisan bread so much that they decided to make it themselves," based on traditional recipes of French master bakers that they adjust until their creations are perfect.

Although the opening date of their Prague location has not been announced yet, it is worth keeping an eye out for, especially if you are a fan of croissants, baguettes, and French-style breads.

Bufáček

Although newly opened, Bufáček is a continuation of a family tradition that goes back to the Pátkový family in Bratroňov at the start of the 20th century. The butchery and restaurant offers a modern take on traditional Czech cuisine, through an assortment of meaty dishes such as sausages, meatloaves, sandwiches, and soups.

Their products are gluten-free, because "all members of our family agree that flour does not belong in sausages," and have obtained more than 30 certificates of quality at the regional and national level over the years.

Mr. G's Asian

Last but not least, the newly opened Asian fusion restaurant Mr. G's Asian is an "Asian bistro with a strong Thai influence," with a menu dominated by "delicious seafood and quality meat accompanied by unique Italian wines and spicy cocktails."

The restaurant is a joint project of Australian chef and restaurateur Riccardo Lucque and chef Greg Haynes, and is based on a concept to share food and interact at the table. Their location opened on the site of the former La Bottega Gastronomica restaurant.
