A touch of nostalgia for the locals, but with a very 21st-century vibe and sophisticated eats
Retro-mod, Trendy Dining in Downtown Pest
One of the most fashionable restaurants of the moment amongst young people (and indeed, even those not so young). It can be found at Liszt Ference Tér 2, very near the main boulevard Adrássu Út and right in the thick of the Budapest nightlife zone. The reasons Menza is such a hit are various: its modern take on a retro late-Communist-era canteen (menza), funky wallpaper included; the disco-flavoured soundtrack; and the superb quality of the international/updated Hungarian menu.
