Hello fellow hounds,
I will be in Vienna, Budapest, Tokaj and Eger, and possibly the Tokay region of Slovakia in May for a business wine focused tour of this region. I have done some research on these areas, but am seeking your advice on restaurants with a specific focus on wine bars or those places which have particularly interesting wine lists. Part of my itinerary includes visiting vineyards.
In terms of style of cuisine, I would prefer to focus on local fare. No particular budget in mind, but I lean towards restaurants that possess soul-both in terms of the cuisine and with respect to how the restaurant is run front-of-house. Do not care for pretentious establishments. Any restaurant will do-low end "greasy spoon", family run, to higher end fine dining. If there isn't a great wine list, but the food is great or the establishment has an interesting "story" then I would love to visit it as well.
Thanking you in advance for all your guidance,
