Lou Lou reopens in Budapest
Restaurateur Károly Rudits reopened his French fine dining restaurant in Székely Mihány street, downtown Budapest, a few steps away from the Opera House. Welcome back, Lou Lou!
Best of Budapest online | November 22, 2013
We all have fond memories of our favorite restaurant. Great nights out with friends marveling at the chef’s creations, tasting fine wines and being pampered by the knowledgeable and efficient staff who attend to very need. For many of us in Budapest, Lou Lou was that restaurant. Envisioned and run by restaurateur Károly Rudits, Lou Lou was headed for certain Michelin stardom when the economic downturn and the yearlong construction at his doorstep forced this legendary restaurant to close its doors. Károly took his talents and entrepreneurial spirit and created a new restaurant concept in the UNESCO World Heritage castle district called ‘Vár: a Speiz’, which has come to be a favorite destination for tourists from around the world.  But Károly’s dream to create a French haute cuisine bistro never faded and was realized in November with the grand reopening of Lou Lou! How to describe it to you, a gem? It is a 42 seat bistro with a remarkably tasteful décor and a warm, welcoming, cozy feeling. As for the cuisine, credit goes to its artist chef, Attila Nagy, who, even after working for many years with Gordon Ramsay, and after gaining praise from Michelin star chef Miguel Vieria, decided to continue his art at Lou Lou. Károly and Attila have created a true gastronomic experience carefully selecting all the ingredients to ensure a memorable meal. Luckily, you don’t have to take our word for it or rely on memories of the past because now you can experience for yourself the new and improved Lou Lou.
