Food news: Seafood and sushi, as the Václavák sausage party rages on


There've been a fair amount of seafood events happening around town lately. Now, CzecHouse is doing one of their own: a special lobster and shellfish menu that runs from the 15th to the 24th of February. See the full menu (including suggested wine pairings) here.

Zahrada v Opeře recently welcomed a new executive chef, Martial Clement, to their funky-hip quarters in the Radio Free Europe building. They've also begun featuring weekly "Sushi Days"every Tuesday through Saturday; the Japanese delicacies are prepared by chef Tadayoshi Ebina.

Upscale Indian restaurant Khajuraho has moved from its original location in the Iron Gate Hotel to a new spot down the street on Michalská. The hotel plans to open a new restaurant, The Iron Gate, in the spring.

And for those of you who love your klobása, you can rest a little easier tonight: it's been announced that the Václavské náměstí sausage stands will remain in business after all. Prague City Hall backed down from its plan to shut down the outdoor vendors after 9000 people signed a petition in protest.
