Riverside Restaurant has the charm of a mom-and-pop diner, and features traditional diner classics alongside hearty Czech fare. Entrees are served with soup and dessert, and averaging around $10 a piece, you won’t break the bank on a three-course meal. The roast duck is slow-cooked and features a crispy browned skin, pair it with a side of sour-sweet sauerkraut and boiled houskové knedlíky (bread dumplings.) Stop in on Sunday, when one of the specials is Veal Paprika. Onions and veal are simmered until tender and spiked with sour cream and a sweet, smoky kick of Hungarian paprika. The dish is accompanied by a mountain of buttery spätzle, perfect for scooping up the thick and creamy gravy.
