Hotels >New Prague Hotel & Restaurant
Drive an hour out of the Twin Cities and be transported to a little corner of Europe..
The charming, chalet-like dining room is full of cozy touches: rustic chairs with cut-out hearts, tiny table lanterns and painted plates lining wood-paneled walls. Tables are close together, so diners (dressed in everything from sport coats to sneakers) hold conversations at an intimate whisper. Sit near the windows for a peaceful garden view, or grab a table by the fireplace; you'll feel as if you're in old Prague. Waitstaff is chatty, familial and extremely accommodating.
Kathleen Schumacher helps guests navigate the menu's wild game specialties, made famous by her husband, Chef John. Once you've ordered a refreshing raspberry lambic or German pilsner, dig into a starter of juicy sausages--the sampler offers three with hot honey mustard and horseradish. The elk steak is lean and tender, wrapped in smoked apple bacon and served with bronzed vegetables and cranberry-raisin relish. Lamb tenderloins are nicely matched with tangy burgundy barbecue sauce and sweet pear-pineapple chutney. Creamy banana tart with caramel is a luscious finish.
Not bad...... Went to Schumachers on a package deal special and have a rather mixed opinion. The food was good, but we were allowed a limited menu. I must agree with the editor, though, the Banana Cream Tart was great! All the food was good and they packed up a very nice picnic lunch for us to take with the next day....great sandwiches. But, I think it is all a bit overpriced. Plus, you could sit at the bar for hours waiting for service. Just not very welcoming...
