Karpatia


Member Rating 4 out of 5 by kylebarber on April 24, 2002

Karpatia carries on a tradition of over 120 years of fine dining. While the restaurant has experienced a number of changes in its lengthy history, Karpatia has always respected and warmly welcomed its guests and have provided first class meals that prompted many return visits. The current d├ęcor reflects the style of Hungary in the mid 1920's, when the Spolarich family purchased the restaurant.

Our meal consisted of three courses, starting with a duck soup flavored with white wine and saffron. Being adverse to red meat, I opted to pass on the young bull sirloin steak, but thoroughly enjoyed my substitute chicken prepared with creamed mushroom ragout and steamed vegetables. Dessert was a homemade poppy seed parfait laced with a rich cognac and sour cherry sauce.

Before meals, small groups may partake in a cocktail in one of the private reception areas adjoining the dining rooms. Akos Niklai, the current owner and caretaker of Karpatia, also runs the nearby art deco themed Premier Restaurant & Terrace, situated on the eternal Andrassy boulevard.
