Best of Budapest & Hungary annual gala

March 26, 2012

Budapest Week Publishing presented the most outstanding restaurants, hotels and vintners of the past year with the coveted Best of Budapest award during its Best of Budapest Gala 2012, one of the most exclusive events in the Hungarian capital.

Budapest Week Publishing has conducted an annual survey of its readers since 1993 regarding which of their favorite local restaurants, hotels and suppliers to the hospitality industry should be considered the best in the trade. On March 24, the winners were recognized at the 19th annual Best of Budapest gala event. This year, for the first time, the awards were extended to include those worthy from outside the capital, as well. From this year, the award will be known as the Best of Budapest & Hungary.

The open vote took place in the first two months of the year. The votes received were tested by strict quality standards, and the winners of the 52 categories and four special awards were announced at a high profile ceremony, held in the grand ballroom of the Intercontinental Hotel for the 12th consecutive year. The event was attended by 600 prominent guests from leaders of the international business community, representatives of Hungary’s hospitality and service-industries, and members of the international diplomatic corps.

The Best of Budapest organizers always make an effort to exceed their performance of the previous year and treat guests with more diversified programs and delicious meals, providing a truly enjoyable evening and insight to the newest gastronomic creations of a variety of restaurants under one roof.
This year, the Best of Budapest & Hungary Awards Gala featured 14 restaurants and six wineries in the signature program, the ‘Taste of the Town’, an eclectic mix of gastronomic delights accompanied with fine wines and spirits from around the world.  Besides Hungarian and international dishes, Brazilian, Indian, Mexican, Japanese and reform kitchens were showcased.

Each year the Best of Budapest Gala benefits a Hungarian charity with the proceeds from raffle ticket sales. This year’s recipient is the Csodalámpa (Magic Lamp) Foundation. The Foundation’s aim is to grant a wish to any, 3-18 years old child, who suffers from a life-threatening illness and whose family normally cannot afford to fulfill this wish.
