Had a wonderful meal at this Restaurant which is only a 5 minute walk from the Hilton Hotel. Our waiter was Sahdor who was very attentive but only when we needed him.

Description
Hungarian cuisine from the "good old days" gets a modern update at 21. The dishes maintain all the rich flavors of their original preparations, but here they are lighter, celebrating fresh ingredients from the farmer's market. This is an old-fashioned, quality Hungarian restaurant re-imagined through a modern lens.
