Concierge.com's insider take:
The city's best seafood restaurant is in the Radisson Blu Alcron, a stately New Town hotel where many journalists, artists, and world leaders stayed during the city's interwar golden age. Reservations are essential, as Alcron is only open for dinner on weeknights and there are just seven small tables in a single semicircular room. Plush burgundy and jade set a sophisticated tone, while vibrant Jazz Age murals enliven the background. Chef Jiri Stift sends out harmonious appetizer combinations such as seared scallops with porcini mushrooms and braised veal breast with langoustines. Main courses take it up a notch, including T-bone-size fillets of John Dory and a duo of steamed halibut and Brittany lobster. One eight-course menu is dedicated to lobsters, prawns, and crayfish. It all adds up to a pretty big wow for Eastern Europe, not least of which is the bill.
Open Mondays through Fridays 5:30 to 10:30 pm.
