4 Years of Michelin Stars at The Alcron Restaurant
The Alcron Restaurant has been on a winning streak the past 4 years with consistent designation as a Michelin Star restaurant. Since 1932, The Alcron has been a fixture of Prague’s gourmet dining landscape and is now lead by head chef, Roman Paulus. Visit for an unforgettable culinary experience at the Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel!
To gain recognition in the The Michelin Guide to the Main Cities of Europe is considered one of the greatest successes, as there is no higher recommendation in the world of gastronomy. However, to defend the Michelin Star is getting ever more challenging– let alone to win the prize 4 times!
Although the Michelin criteria remains a secret, the atmosphere and coordination of the restaurant are thought to play a part in the award beyond the food itself. According to David Pátek, F&B Hotel Manager, “I am happy that we have managed to create a cook-and-waiter team determined to achieve the same goal, which is 100 % satisfied guests, the goal that has always been on top of our efforts. It is only a perfect service and faultless meals that can satisfy even the most demanding customers and provide them with a great experience.”
The Alcron Restaurant’s chef, Roman Paulus, needs no introduction. Since 2009, Paulus has applied his wealth of international culinary experience to his work at the Alcron. On staying Michelin competitive, Paulus comments“The appraisal is the result of a great deal of hard work. Nonetheless, it is always necessary to keep setting even more ambitious goals since trends in all areas, including gastronomy, are extremely fast-changing.”
The Alcron Restaurant was renovated in 2000 with an Art Deco style, mirroring the interior of the Radisson Blu Alcron hotel. In the intimate room of only 24 seats, diners can enjoy watching the walls decorated the muraled walls of dancing couples, painted by Tamara de Lempicka. Also take note of the original fireplace from the 1930s, which accentuates the magic of this fixture of the Prague culinary scene.
After being recognized a second-year with the Star, Michal Chour, the General Manager of the Radisson commented, “We are really very proud to have succeeded in defending the Michelin Star. However, we perceive the appreciation as significant not only as far as our hotel is concerned but on the nationwide level as well. We are happy the Czech Republic is gaining world awareness thank to the success achieved by The Alcron Restaurant.”
In fact, Chour’s prediction has become evermore true as the country was recognized yet again in 2016 with a new addition to the Michelin list, Field. Field is a free-range gourmet experience with ingredients known for their freshness and local roots. Head Chef, Radek Kašpárek crafts a variety of seasonal offerings that can be ordered either in a tasting menu or à la carte. Gourmet diners can also visit the third Michelin-star restaurant of the Czech Republic, La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise.
