M. Restaurant

48 Kertész Utca
Budapest , Hungary

This French-influenced bistro, located not far from the Academy of Music, is purposely nondescript. With just a table or two visible on its charming main floor — more seating lies upstairs — M Restaurant is unassuming to the extreme. (The restaurant goes undetected by most tourists, attracting a locals crowd heavy on students.) Plain brown paper adorns the tables and walls, while colorful sketches and water carafes on the tables contributing to the little eatery's artsy feel. The menu changes daily, favoring hearty Hungarian fare with French overtones.
