The landmark Budapest Restaurant has been

operating since 1956, and its current owners Eduard

Nagy and Anita Tasonyi are 20-year veterans

of the establishment. Protégés of the legendary

restaurateur Marika Hayek, they continue to delight

clients by offering authentic Hungarian specialties in

this classic old-world setting. Confident, expansive

cooking keeps traditional Hungarian flavours

front and centre. Think classic offerings flavoured

predominantly by woodsy, smoky Hungarian paprika

— dishes that are precisely prepared and expertly

flavoured. Located downtown in the hotel district, the

restaurant is a short walk from the Delta Armouries,

DoubleTree by Hilton and RBC Place London.

Banquet room available. 348 Dundas Street, 519-439-

Locomotive Espresso, a locally-owned espresso

bar, is growing the five-year-old business, with the

addition of a location this coming Februrary at 350

Ridout Street South (at Chester St.) in the Old South

neighbourhood. Locomotive Espresso South will

be brewing espresso-based beverages using Mod Bar/

La Marzocco equipment, an under-counter system

with above counter taps. The modular formation

will create an open bar look, and the design offers

excellent interaction and engagement with customers.

“Old South is a creative and passionate

community where we can expand our brand and

employment opportunities while offering a sense

of a community place with exceptional products,”

said owner Jill Wright. Staying super local and

a business incubator has been a priority for

Locomotive Espresso. They were one of the first

retailers to offer such local brands as Booch, Nuts

for Cheese, Bliss Bars, The New New Age, and Helm

Baked. They support other established businesses

like Willie’s Café, North Moore Catering, The

Artisan Bakery, The Tea Haus and Momo’s At The
