MODERN CONCEPT IN HISTORICAL SETTING
Monk's Bistrot has opened it’s doors in March 2015 downtown Budapest and almost immediately became a recognized player on the capital’s culinary scene. The name choice and the interior design were inspired by spirit of the local, -former kitchen of the Piarist monks in the 19th century- and are a tribute to the past. When designing the current interior our aim was to find the right balance between past and present, design and functionality and fill the whole place with the subtle harmony that also is a determinant characteristic of our kitchen. The kitchen Island is implanted in the restaurant’s central area basically being huge Chef’s Table offers an exciting spectacle for the curious eyes. For those preferring a more intimate atmosphere we propose tables in the quiet backend and in the even more protected alcoves. When the weather allows guests are welcome to sit and eat out on our terraces: Our frontal terrace enjoys a protected feel thanks to the archway of the passage whilst the lateral one offers the great view of the main church and it’s garden, the Gellert-mountain and the Danube. Monk's Bistrot provides an ideal setting, be it a business lunch, romantic dinner , casual gathering or family reunion.
ALL ONE COULD WISH FOR- IN THE REALM OF FOOD
Monk 's Bistrot’s culinary concept is to provide a special experience - in an unconventional way -allowing insight “behind the scenes.” Our kitchen island is open on all sides offering full transparency to the whole kitchen process from chopping through cooking to plating. Watching the art of cooking while you dine is like a new kind of theater and can be truly inspirational, changing the way you think about the food you eat. We not only want to show customers the ingredients and reinforce freshness and quality but also prove our aptitude and thus share our passion for gastronomy. We do not have anything to hide.
“To celebrate life“ is simply our philosophy which is reflected in our ingredients we cherry-pick day by day, their creative use and the presentation of our meals. We always keep an eye on the newest trends in gastronomy but while applying innovation we still manage to preserve the original nature of the food. Our kitchen works along principles of fusion cuisine combining spices and ingredients from different geographical regions using new technologies. Freshness, harmonious flavours and attractive plating are the characteristic of the sophisticated Bistronomy represented by Monk's Bistrot.
Our food range is constituted of a seasonal fix menu and the additional Chef 's weekly offer. Our wine list was put together by our experts who cherry-picked excellent wines from the best Hungarian wineries to complete the culinary experience offered by Monk 's Bistrot and also promote the excellent Hungarian viticulture that worthily competes with the world’s bests.
