The casual vibe at this friendly Czech restaurant extends to the kitchen—some dishes on the brunch menu may or may not be available. Don’t let it bother you. The Shaw spot is all about going with the flow—sharing the rustic house-made pâté with friends, sipping a glass of semisweet sparkling wine, and chatting with the staff. Besides, there’s always something good to eat: Try oven-roasted speck and poached eggs with greens dressed in honey-lemon vinaigrette or a crepe with ham and cheese, Nutella, or strawberries and Chantilly cream. On the savory (and more classically Czech) side, there’s crispy chicken schnitzel with potato salad. The basket of pastries is baked in-house, and coffee—Vienna import Julius Meinl—is among the strongest and smoothest you’ll find. Saturday and Sunday 10 to 3.
