Hungarian food

Apart from Andre's, is there anywhere in New York City that I can eat and/or buy Hungarian food? Many thanks.

  1. Might find some stuff you like at Korzo Haus

      I actually did try Korzo Haus and was sorely disappointed.

    2. My husband still laments about closing of Mocca where he used to get a massive plate of lamb or goat shank or was it a whole head?

      Cafe Sabarsky has some Hungarian on their menu.

        +1 on missing Mocca....

        Years ago there also was a restaurant Csarda, nearby to Mocca. Was that Hungarian or Czech? In any event, it too is gone; they had a great duck dish.

          Yes, Mocca was fantastic! I'll try Cafe Sabarsky - thanks.

            Seasonal is Austrian, not Hungarian.

          2. Have you been to the hungarian pastry shop on uws?

            (Sorry its yelp but they don't have a website and aren't on menupages)

              I did - yes. It had a few sorry looking pastries which were overly sweet. Andres beats it hands down.

            2. I think Andre's is all that remains of a place for some paprikash, or other Hungarian dishes. The UES, used to have many Hungarian restaurants, all in the East 70's. Orwasher's Bakery is still on 78th St. i'd go in there and ask them if they know of any Hungarian restaurants that are still around.
              I do see Cafe Sabarsky has Marillenpalatschinken crêpes with house made apricot confiture,,,,, which is almost the same as
              Hungarian Palacsinta.
