Opening Winekitchen was a fulfilment of a more-than-a-decade-old dream. Having left Restaurant Mágnáskert, we set off on different professional paths that led us to Bock Bistro and Bortársaság. But our friendship and family ties stayed strong over the years, therefore it was obvious that may opportunity come, we would open a restaurant together.
Winekitchen, as we see it, is a blend of a French-style bistro and a contemporary family restaurant offering the best of Hungarian cuisine. The name Winekitchen speaks for itself. The concept is based on the wide and diverse wine list, the delicious food and the personal and relaxed service.
Our wine assortment includes 200 different, mostly Hungarian wines that represent not only the well-known wineries, but also small and yet-to-be-discovered cellars. We offer 48 wines by the glass at a time and have a temperature-controlled wine shelf with 1200-bottle-capacity so that you could buy wine by the bottle at a reasonable price for either take-away or drinking it on spot.
Our cuisine is based on fresh, even daily purchased ingredients and on the weekly-fortnightly changing offers written on the black board. Our chef, Ákos Sárközi has been with us from the first moment. We appreciate his knowledge and genuineness, professionalism showed while working in Restaurant Alabárdos, his continuous success in the Tradition and Evolution competition, and the experiences he gained as a stage in the Portuguese two-Michelin-star Restaurant Villa Joya.
"What is my philosophy? I would like to create a kitchen full of flavours. If I hade to define my style, I would say that it is open to any influences. As I get inspiration from the Transylvanian cuisine, I'm also ready to use Spanish, French or Italian ingredients. My aim is to show the many facets of the traditional Hungarian cuisine by using contemporary approach and kitchen technology."
The proof of the pudding is in the eating, so come and visit us and we hope that you will become a regular guest at Winekitchen.
