Restaurateur Nils Jebens is best-known for haute cuisine stalwarts Kampa Park, Square, and Hergetova Cihelna, but this, his newest destination and the city's only real steakhouse, is probably the most fun. Just below Prague Castle, this cellar dining room has exposed brick arches and multilevel seating platforms that help create an airy, spacious feel (there's also an elevated outdoor terrace). Though most come for steaks (tender filet mignon, juicy entrecôte, rich rib eyes, and perfectly charred T-bones) and bar classics (Buffalo wings and Caesar salads), there's also a superb wine list, trumpeted by floor-to-ceiling displays of Rhône, Languedoc, and Burgundy vintages. (The house Frankovka from Hort is surprisingly good for a Czech red, and nicely priced at $20.) Even vegetarians will do well here, as Cowboys' meatless portobello mushroom burger arguably upstages its beefy cousin.
