We went there for a dinner on a Thursday night. The booking was made, supposedly, automatically and I was, supposedly, to wait for 10 minutes for the confirmation, in fact it took 12 hours for it to arrive but never mind, the general experience made up for it.
We settled for a five-course menu. The combination of the food, serving, service, wine selection and the show part around the particular parts of the menu were top level. I was to stress the egg noodles, a Hungarian classic boosted with truffles to a sky-high level. To me this was both a nod towards the Hungarian cuisine and a wink: this is what one can make out of it. The fact that only Hungarian wines were served, that they were mostly white and that the selection was not banal deserves praise too.
The almost entirely perfect experience was tainted by a minor factor: the music selection (mostly jazzy covers of pop classics), put against the careful composition of the tastes, the sight and the show, struck as accidental. More effort put into music better matching the core parts of the Babel experience would do the place a great service. Altogether however, respect!
