Venison @ zlata praha?
Does anyone know when the venison feast at the astoria
czech restaurant Zlata Praha is?
A few questions about this event: how much does it
cost? what type of things do they usually serve? And,
most important of all, how can I convince my wife,
going strong on weight watchers, that it can fit into
the diet plan?
Also, how does Zlata Praha compare to Milan's in
general? is it worth the extra money?
We went to the venison feast last night -- after that
meal, I would be happy to go back to the restaurant,
but not for the venison feast. The food was great -- I
liked the gulyas and dumplings better than Milan's, and
one of the dishes was served in a just splendid garlic
gravy. But the place was totally chaotic, it took like
45 minutes after we were seated to be served, and they
screwed up our reservation so we had to wait nearly an
hour to be seated. Next time I go there will be during
a less busy time.

I'm not sure on the particulars, all I know is when I
used to live in Astoria every year there was a sign up
on Zlata Praha advertising a venison feast. From what
I have been told (all hearsay) the owner goes out and
bags a deer that is then served to patrons on a given
weekend. When I called for reservations I was given a
choice of Friday-Sunday, March 5-7. I'm sure it's not
diet, though if it's any consolation I would think
that venison is less fatty than beef.
Having been to ZP before, I can't imagine that it will
be horribly expensive; their normal range is $8-12,
and well worth it. Their phone # is 718-721-6422.
