It's that time of year again. The city is decked out in festive splendour, and the smell of hot chocolate and mulled wine fills the air. This is your sign to take a break from the holiday chores and focus on the moments you share with your loved ones. If you want an unforgettable experience before Christmas, be sure to visit the Párisi Udvar, whose turn-of-the-century Art Nouveau magnificence is captivating in itself. But the Párisi Passage Café & Brasserie is also preparing special offers and programmes for Advent and New Year's Eve.
Holiday vibes in the Párisi Passage – Christmas flavours and New Year's Eve party in a fin-de-siècle splendour
The enchanting interior of the Párisi Passage, reminiscent of the last century, immediately captivates everyone, while offering authentic Christmas vibes. Alongside the fabulous scenery, we're in for special flavours, festive tunes, and plenty of surprises.
The restaurant and the café are both preparing seasonal delights. It's worth checking out chef Lajos Lutz's menu featuring traditional Christmas favourites such as fisherman's soup from Baja, stuffed cabbage rolls, and mákos guba (a poppy seed bread pudding), as well as delicacies such as salmon jalousie and sparkling wine mille-feuille.
"Planning a holiday menu is always a difficult task. It has to satisfy not only those who want to try new and special dishes but also those who prefer traditional and classic ones. This is the idea behind this year's menu; I wanted to offer special and classic dishes that are guaranteed to be a hit with all our guests," shared Lajos Lutz, chef at Párisi Passage Café & Brasserie.
The holiday menu is accompanied by three classic Christmas drinks: mulled wine, punch, and hot chocolate. These can be enjoyed in the restaurant or the café, or you can buy an adorable mug to sip the warming drinks while you stroll around. For a real holiday treat, check out the Festive Afternoon Tea offer at the café, where you can try iconic Christmas pastries such as hókifli (small, crescent-shaped biscuits originally made with walnuts and vanilla sugar), Zserbó cake, and gingerbread alongside your tea or mulled wine.
The Párisi Passage Café & Brasserie has a great programme in store for New Year's Eve as well; alongside Étoile Champagne Bar, they will bid farewell to 2022 with extended opening hours, a New Year's Eve menu, and live music.
