Tel: 36 1 321 0340's insider take:

Not all Hungarian restaurants are cobwebby places with old carpets and candles. Opened in 2005 on a posh, Mayfair-like stretch of busy Erzsébet körút, Hungarian vintner József Bock's Bock Bisztro serves up tasty local specialties in an airy, modern dining room. The menu includes burgers and other international standards, but the real winners here are traditional preparations of locally sourced meats, such as bread crumb–encrusted suckling pig or slow-roasted, paprika-glazed ox cheeks. Best of all, dinner for two, including a bottle of a great local vintage, can be had here for less than $75. There's also a wine shop and deli where you can purchase small bites (sausages, cheese, olives) and bottles to go.—Evan Rail
