Good news for foodie sin the Czech Republic: The Alcron, the fine-dining restaurant at the former Radisson Blu Hotel Prague (now Alcron Hotel Prague), has been awarded its first Michelin star. The restaurant, which has only 24 seats, is headed by Czech chef Roman Paulus and offers a menu focused on fish and seafood.
The Alcron opened in 1932 and soon became a favorite venue for celebrities like writer Frederick Forsyth, French cabaret singer and owner Maurice Chevalier and U.S. General Douglas MacArthur. The dining room is designed in Art Déco style and includes an original fireplace from the 1930s and wall paintings of dancing couples by Tamara de Lempicka.
Chef Roman Paulus has worked at The Savoy in London and onboard the cruise liner Queen Elizabeth II before joining The Alcron four years ago.
The Radisson Blu Prague is located at Stepanska, 40 in Prague.
