Menza is partly a gag, taking its name and decor from the Communist-era cafeterias that once dotted the city. But it also serves excellent simple cooking at moderate prices: Main courses, like tender roast baby chicken with timbale of baby spinach or hearty paprika-inflected fisherman's soup of pike, perch, zander, and trout, hover around $10. The retro vibe, value-for-money ratio, and first-rate people-watching have made Menza the destination on busy Liszt Ferenc tér for artsy scenesters and business types loosening their neckties after-hours. If you can't reserve a table in advance, come by around 5:30 or 6 and grab a drink before dinner: You won't get kicked off your table when you finally decide to eat, and you'll have even more time watching the scene. Prices are low enough in the evening, but weekday lunch specials dip even more: two filling courses for about $5.

Lunch and dinner daily.
