Well, went for lunch today.

first of all -great prices - NOTHING at lunch over $14.95. I had tafelspitz, dining companion had chicken paprikas.

Big list of desserts as well. Schnitzels, mushroom "goulash" (gomboc) available with spaetzle made in house.

Kremschnit, gesztenyepure -chestnut puree on whipped cream.

Notes - chef came out to talk to the clientele (official opening is next week). Very pleasant. Former chef from Hortobagy. This is the former Maximilian's space - the french place, corner of Weddington and Tujunga near the public library. BIG parking lot on Weddington.

He told me that some of hte older specialties from Hortobagy are availalbe - just not on the menu so you have to ask for them. They now have korozott - liptauer spread on the menu. Kibamaj and disznosajt available on request. Menu has only apricot jam palacsintak-palatschinken. BUT you can request and get walnut, poppy seed and probably cheese filled crepes as well.

For the next week or so it seems they are handout out a tray of mixed appetizer spreads as goodwill. Great butter, korozott cheese spread, a country pate, peppers, radishes and scallions. Very tasty.

Weddington st just east of Tujunga ave, west of Lankershim. Everything was delicious, and a bit rustic, if you're expecting GUndel or Drei Husaren, you'll be disappointed. But I had a great time.
