Some of my favorites for the evening were the potato pancakes and pierogi as well as the desserts.
We were seated in a back corner in this cute little nook that overlooked the kitchen where we could see the chefs hard at work.
I'm a big lover of kolacky and these were divine! :)
This bit of wall art depicted a Bohemian table setting.
The space was utterly charming and cozy. The former sound studio was converted into a restaurant that opened this past July.
As I left I grabbed a copy of the fall menu by Executive Chef Jimmy Papadopoulos. Although it will be changing over soon, the current options include bacon buns, cauliflower salad, knackwurst in a blanket and bone marrow & steak tartare on the starter menu and entree choices that range from spatzle to roasted duck to wild striped bass to chicken paprikash along with the ever-popular pork schnitzel.
You can't go wrong with the delectable sweets of coffee & doughnuts, cheese kolacky and dark chocolate custard. The latter is served with salted caramel ice cream, candied peanuts, butterscotch & cocoa tuile. Totally worth the stop just for dessert.
