We visited Bad Jeff’s using a Groupon-type voucher that entitled us to one shared starter, two main courses and one shared dessert.
Bad Jeff’s occupies a cellar-space on Americká street – about five minutes walk from Náměstí Míru tram/metro stop. I think I went there one time a few years ago when it was a Czech bar with food.
We actually booked for a Wednesday evening and then called and asked if we could change to Thursday at 19:30. They were happy to do that, although they did say there was a large party arriving at 19:00.
We could see the place was busy when we arrived, there was a large table that we guessed were the 19:00 party – the remainder of the tables in the main restaurant and smaller salonek looked full. We checked in with a waiter and he apologised that our table wasn’t ready. We waited at the bar, but had to stand as they don’t have bar stools. We ordered a bottle of good bottle of red wine that I think was around 450Kc. There were some cheaper options available. It was over 10 minutes until we were seated.
Our waiter, who we suspect was the owner, was helpful and friendly. We ordered:
- Starter to share: Blue cheese portobello mushroom w/ roasted shallot cream sauce – 155Kc
- Main course each: Grilled marinated flank steak 220g w/ braised salsify, wilted arugula – 345Kc – we ordered medium rare and also Curly fries 45Kc as these weren’t included with the steak
- Dessert: Caramel bread pudding w/ homemade marshmallows – 135Kc
The starter arrived quickly and was really delicious.
The steaks were huge and seemed larger than 220g. They were more rare than medium rare, which we could cope with, but also a bit chewy. I suppose they were okay but not amazing, especially considering the place advertises itself as a barbeque.
The dessert was excellent.
As I mentioned, the place was busy and the nature of the room also meant that it was very echoey.
I’d probably visit Bad Jeff again, maybe for a late lunch of starter and dessert. Or maybe try the ‘knife and fork’ BBQ ribs.
