The release of the "French Gastro Bible" can bring the tears of joy and grief in equal measure, making or breaking careers. As for Hungarians, it is only joy this year. According to the ‘Michelin Guide - Main Cities of Europe 2015’, Borkonyha, Costes and Onyx have successfully retained their stars while Tanti received a new star rating. The Michelin guide describes Tanti as a restaurant that is “located in the corner of a pleasant little shopping mall and comes complete with an appealing terrace. It's light, bright and simply kitted out and offers a concise menu of attractively presented, accomplished dishes. Classic combinations are respected but there's also originality to be seen.” The news this morning found the crew of Tanti, and head chef István Pesti utterly surprised.  “First, we’d like to get through with the lunch and then we’ll get a grip and will come up with a press release, too,” they said about an hour after they learned about the recognition.
