argentinean restauranteur juan cruz pacin brings his home-country’s cuisine to prague with ‘gran fierro’. located in the center of the city on vorsilska street, the eatery gives the heart of europe a taste of south america. cocktails, food, and tango make the place a hotspot for those out for a night on the town. aside from the good eats, the restaurant is characterized with a strong interior by architects dagmar štěpánová and katarína varsová of formafatal.

their design is characterized by its two large, defined spatial areas. one zone, around the entrance, is dominated by a large bar visible from the expansive front windows. in the back, there’s a more intimate space filled with tables, and a small lounge with armchairs. regardless of where you are, the kitchen and chefs busy at work are always within eyesight. all features are tied together neatly with patina’d wood tables, metal shelving, and upholstery made with tanned argentinean leather.
