Patricius Furmint in New York City luxurious restaurant
Buddakan – flamboyant and surreal
Gastronomical experts often say that the sweet wines of Tokaj pair well with Asian dishes. Furmint, the flagship grape variety of Tokaj is often vinified dry, and not surprisingly it also matches some plates of the Asian cuisine. Now New York citizens can get evidence of it at Buddakan, a restaurant with gorgeous interior and fabulous food. “Exhilarating to the eyes and tastebuds alike, Buddakan presents the vivid flavors of the Far East in a surreal atmosphere that marries the serenity of Asia with the flamboyance of 16th-century Paris.“ Indeed, Buddakan is worth visiting, it is food for the eyes – and of course the palate will be pampered as well.
The wine list of Buddakan is not the largest of the world, however it is a great mix of everything – ideal for adventurous spirits. There are various sizes from half bottle to jeroboam, we can find the “compulsory” wines like Champagne, Chablis or Port, and then we can find a lot of exciting wines from every corner of the world.
