LEVENTE KOVÁCS, CHEF

It has been two years since I received the privilege of working for ZONA as head chef.  When I first arrived, the owners had two requests: first of all, to keep the characteristics of Hungarian cuisine and follow our traditions.

And the other: when our guests eat a three-course meal at ZONA, they should be moved by the experience...

...That great experience should come back to the memory of our guest on a regular Sunday morning when the family asks where to have lunch. The magic of the soup; the splendor of the main course; the subtle beating of one’s heart should be the reminder. We want this to be the experience that will bring our guests back to ZONA time and time again

...One of the most beautiful places in Budapest, the neighborhood of the Buda Castle, provides the atmosphere for our venue. Situated on the bank of the Danube with a beautiful panorama and live piano every evening, guests settle in for an unforgettable experience...

...As a chef, I follow a style of minimal design in the kitchen with this thought: simple can be great.

I stand by the belief that the ingredients should be used the way they are made by nature, allowing us to come to the point where the simple ingredients are not so simple any more, bringing complex, natural flavor harmonies....

... At ZONA, nothing is simply what our guests would expect, but exactly the way they want it to be.... and better!

Simple is complicated
