Budapest

One of the haunts of jazz lovers is found in the 12th District, near Széll Kálmán tér. Mezzo Music Restaurant has undergone a multitude of changes since jazz was added to the repertoire. The conservatory is a glimpse into the world of French colonies, paying hommage to the culture of coffee and tea, re-introducing the sorely missed practice of filling breakfasts with newspaper reading. The earlier musical trends have been consolidated, also in the choice of name and the swing vibes of the decoration hinting at a 1930ies feel. The dishes are international, giving equal space to the Spanish tapas, shrimp risotto and Thai curry all. The wine card endeavours to introduce the fineries of wine culture, with wine tasting opportunity in the wine corner. Recommended for a business lunch or an evening rendezvous - should the conversation stall, the g-clef pattern of the carpet might just be the perfect ice-breaker topic. Timely booking is highly recommended.
