125 Year Old Gundel Restaurant In Budapest Introduces: 1 Night, 2 Chefs, 5 Courses
The 125-year-old iconic Gundel presents a joint dinner by Kálmán Kalla, legendary chef between 1992 and 2006, and Zsolt Litauszki, current chef since 2018. On 21 May you can taste Gundel's two exceptional chefs' creations in one menu. Be one of the 125 guests.

When a concept – in this case Gundel – turns 125 years old, it's time to celebrate it and commemorate it.

To stop a little, look back on the past — and at the same time look forward to what the future will bring. At the intersection of the two is the fantastic present: a unique dinner, of which there will only be one.

For those who attend, it will be an event sparked by creative genius and joyful innovation, a history-making dinner that will be talked about for years to come.

Soon after Hungary's democratic transformation, Kálmán Kalla became the emblematic figure of Gundel's resurrection.

Péter Zwack, the Hungarian ambassador to the United States at the time, and his guests were dazzled by Kalla's fantastic culinary creations at the Hungarian Embassy in Washington, D.C., where Kalla was chef.

Eventually George Lang, Gundel's new owner, sought out Kalla, hoping to convince him to return to Hungary.

Kalla eventually couldn't say no to the Gundel name and what it represents. Now, the legendary chef returns to Gundel.

Kalla, together with the current executive chef, Zsolt Litauszki, will bring to life an unforgettable experience.

For Gundel this is not a competition, but a synergistic collaboration: Two passionate chefs' creations come together in one menu.

Be one of the 125 guests to take part in this one-time event.
