Next Friday, October 28, Hungarian gourmand group Lucullus BT will hold one of its celebrated dinner events at the somewhat recently-opened U26 restaurant located on Budapest’s Eiffel tér. The event is entitled Bisztronómia Felsőfokon, or “Bistronomy on the Highest Level.” So what, you may ask, is Bistronomy?
Well, according to Wikipedia, it is the “trend of combining basic bistro decor with quality cuisine.”
Somewhat confusingly, the U26 seems to be officially called the U26 Bisztronómia Fakultáció, or “U26 Bistronomy Elective,” as in a course you can choose to take at college.
Also somewhat confusingly, the décor of the place, while sleek and minimalist, doesn’t seem exactly “basic.”
Anyway, according to the people at Lucullus, U26 chef Dániel Bernát is one of Hungary’s most talented young chefs, and the menu being prepared for the evening (which may or may not include things like in the above pic nabbed from the joint’s Facebook page) promises to be an interesting mixture of Hungarian and French. Or, in any case, interesting.
