Monk's Bistrot

Well designed dinner in Budapest
In researching where to eat in Budapest, I struggled with finding something to appeal to both the foodie and design-fiend in me - and one that wouldn't break the budget. Luckily, one blog mentioned Monk's Bistro, tucked next to the Elizabeth Bridge and overlooking the river. I am so happy I found it. My meal of fresh fish, vegetable soup and excellent Hungarian wine was served in a beautiful room that glowed with copper, reflecting lights from the bridge, and the warm hospitality of the staff. I would have gone back the next night if I wasn't pushing myself to explore more!! A beautiful space focused on the impeccable open kitchen, the atmosphere is relaxed. While I was there a major Hungarian soccer match was on and everyone in the room was sneaking glances when possible. I think that's what the chefs are looking at in this photo! I loved being a part of that environment. Side note: One thing I learned is that a lot of the meals at mediocre restaurants are same as great restaurants. Unless you're eating super budget or super expensive, its worth seeking out those middle of the road gems.
