Here is the email that was sent out by the owners of Touch of Hungary restaurant, formerly of College Point, Queens:
we have received many messages asking about our new location.
As per the owners request we took over the kitchen at the "First Hungarian Literary Society" in Manhattan. It's a club where members come to play cards and have dinner as well.
However, the club allows non-members to come and eat as well - the only condition is that non-members can only come in by RESERVATIONS only.
Our menu has all the basic traditional hungarian dishes as we had at the restaurant, and in addition we also serve a couple fish entrees, and roast duck among others. We also have a larger selection of desserts.
And now the details:
First Hungarian Literary Society
323 East 79th Street

The club is open 6 days a week (closed on Thursdays).

There is a Price Fix menu for $16/ person, which includes an appetizer, soup, salad, main course, dessert and coffee or tea (there is a $2 surcharge for fish or duck entrees). You can also order a la carte.
