Arguably Prague's finest purveyor of gourmet Czech food, The Blue Duckling, as its name translates into English, is well known to parliamentarians and movie actors alike. The original location in the city's Mala Strana district across the Vltava river has finally grown into a second, more easily found branch in the Old Town district. The new edition still banks on what this place has always done best - the kitchen's trademark delicate handling of game and their mastery of fine, hearty sauces of natural herbs and Moravian wines. Service is impeccable, the atmosphere old-world and presentation is something that would make a Bohemian grandmother proud.
