I just thought I’d throw away some old papers and magazine here the other day, and then I found the November edition of Time Out Budapest. In the paper they published their Budapest Restaurant awards for 2009, and I thought I’d just share their results, for those who haven’t read the magazine. One thing interesting to see is that in 2009 November, before Coster received its Via Michelin star, Time Out Budapest already considered the restaurant to be the best contemporary international restaurant in Budapest.
