Concierge.com's insider take:

Kör is one of the perennial best in town, thanks to chef Ádám Répás, who uses seasonal ingredients and bases his menus on Hungarian comfort food, then twists and lightens for the modish palate. Accordingly, the antique tables in the ocher-walled bistro next to the basilica—and, in summer, the terrace tables—are always full of a cross section of Budapesters: the arts crowd, dressed-up ladies, and (a lot of) expatriates. A list of daily specials augments the likes of roast salmon with lemon balm sauce and potato croquettes—also available (as is everything) in a smaller portion at a smaller price. This is the place to acquire your Hungarian sweet tooth: The expert pastry chef turning out cheese dumplings with hot fruits-of-the-forest sauce and gâteau Gerbeaud is Répás's grandma. It's also open for breakfast.

Closed Sundays; cash only.
