A Look Inside Capitol Prague

Posted July 22, 2013 by Mary Kong-DeVito in The Loving Spoonful

o pump some international flavor into a steadily stodgy Georgetown, is new Eastern European eatery Capitol Prague, offering traditional Czech and Slovak dishes like crispy veal schnitzel, hearty goulash, warm plates of svíčková beef and dumplings, noodley spaetzle, and flaky kolaches, crepes and strudels for dessert.

More importantly, let’s talk Czech beers. Czechs love their beer, and Koutske lagers from Šumava are unfiltered and unpasteurized, made with its own well water, local barley and hops, and always on tap here.  In addition to Koutske, Czechvar, and Konrad beers, European wines, and Double Cross vodka, Capitol Prague also features 3 cocktails made with Czech liqueur Becherovka, which tastes like gingerbread.  Try the simple Beton ($11) with Becherovka, lemon and tonic; Fresh Smashin ($11) with Becherovka, grapefruit and soda; or the Dare You ($10) with Becherovka and lime.

Get your drink on for less at happy hour from 5-7 pm weekdays, with specials on beer, cocktails and bites.
