Little Gretel delivers pitch-perfect sauerbraten and spaetzle

Wild game sampler (buffalo, venison, and wild boar sausages) served with spicy whole-grain mustard at Little Gretel.


For dessert we went traditional with the homemade apple strudel that was served with cinnamon ice cream and topped with Chantilly cream. Plan to leave enough room to share this experience with friends.

And don’t forget to enjoy one of the rotating selections of Czech, German, or Belgian draft beers served in an hourglass mug in a small wooden stand.

Mazel regularly invites top chefs from the Czech Republic to cook in her restaurant. She also returns the favor every time she returns to Prague. Corn has never been commonly found in Czech recipes, but after a few trips she noticed her favorite recipe for cream corn featured at one of her friends’ Prague restaurants.

But be warned: Little Gretel is a “family affair that everyone is involved in.” You may even get hooked yourself. Says Mazel: “Once you eat at my restaurant, you become my family.”
