The dish on Dish, exotic new brunches, March openings, and more Prague food news

Dish Fine Burger Bistro 2.0

Based on the roaring success of this Vinohrady burger bar, the owners are happily planning a second location, scheduled to open somewhere in Prague 1 in October or November this year. Not many other details are known, but they say it will be a slightly different concept than the current restaurant (they describe it as “Dish 2.0″ rather than Dish 2”).
