Due to Covid 19, Sweden are still shut down for the most people, but don’t worry, we will still be here when it’s done. Until then, enjoy the pictures from a small part of the archipelago and plan for your next trip to Sweden and of course Stockholm or some other great place in our fantastic country.
La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise
The Czech menu is our interpretation of the refined culinary school of Marie B. Svobodová from the late 19th century. We are inspired by its regional seasonality and the exact consistency with which it approaches the preparation of each dish. The Czech menu is extended with courses inspired by chef Oldřich Sahajdák. It specializes in modern cooking tIn rapid succession, we got three different amuser, before we even decided what we wanted out of this mosaic of possibilities.
La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise is one of two restaurants with in Prague with a Michelin star.
”Intimate L-shaped restaurant in a historic building, with an elegant, dark wood interior and an open kitchen. Two tasting menus of 6 or 11 courses of modern European dishes and interpretations of Czech cuisine; cooking ice Technically exact, innovative and flavourful. Charming, professional service ”

Then it was finally time, almost exactly on the spot we opened the door and stepped into something that looked like a bar with a few tables on the right hand side. This can’t be the place of the venue, I had time to think.
I am not exaggerating if I say that from the moment we opened the door and stepped into their world, we were sublime cared for that evening. This experience is not about a description of service, I cannot take the word service in my mouth when I describe this feeling. It was more about hospitality than anything else, we were seen but not unclothed and with a highly tightened finger top feeling we got a lesson in how to create a super team like a national ice hockey team from the eighties.
The feeling was homey and surreal and since then I haven’t felt anything like that evening in any restaurant, we were completely enchanted. This was about focus, extremely fast and on the spot top notch hospitality. They already know what we wanted and needed before we even know it our self.

The Bellevue is still struggling to get its first Michelin star and are a few steps behind the two leading restaurants thats been rewarded with one Michelin star eatch in Prague. If you get the chance you should visit them both as well as The Bellevue.
From my point of view there is a lack of interest in service level, dont get me wrong but its not sublime as it should be on a top notch restaurant.
The food is ecxellent but they lose points on things like lack of promptness.

Below, the two Michelin star restaurants in Prague
Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise (note, read about mu sublime experience at Le Degustation)
”Intimate L-shaped restaurant with an elegant, contemporary, dark wood interior, open kitchen and chef‘s table. Tasting menu of European dishes makes good use of superb quality regional produce; cooking is technically precise, innovative and flavourful. Warm, professional service from a well-versed team.”
”Intimate, semi-circular restaurant dominated by art deco mural of dancing Manhattan couples by Tamara de Lempicka. Choice of hot and cold tasting dishes from international menu; well-presented, creative and contemporary cooking uses top quality ingredients. Good choice of wines. Attentive, professional staff.”
If you like a treat and you prefer a bold, tender and elegant wine with attitude, here it is. Tebavio 2006 from Tenuta L`illuminata comes from one of the four great hills, La Morra, Piemonte.
Tebavio is almost deep garnet in colour with orange reflections towards the edge, and the wine talks to you like a semi aged gentlemen with a breath of tobacco, lether, black cherries, vanilla and some liquorice hints.
Its well balanced and complex and stays rather long on the palate, this is a gem to keep for years to come.
And when you do deside to open this bottle, do it with some Winelover friends, they will love the treat, its faboulus.
