KNRDY American Steakhouse

KNRDY is an upscale steakhouse right in Budapest’s downtown. They source Prime-graded and Omaha Angus beef from the Unites States, Wagyu from Australia and Japan, and serve only the best cuts like ribeye/tomahawk, New York strip, filet mignon, and T-bone/porterhouse. If you enjoy the funky flavors of aged meat, KNRDY also offers 50-day dry-aged meats. You can’t really go wrong with anything here - all steaks arrive with a crusty, beautifully-browned exterior. My favorite was the intensely flavorful, juicy, and tender Prime Angus ribeye (€60 for 450 grams; 16 oz).

Note that KNRDY's prices can easily run into the euro triple digits, meaning that they're comparable to the most expensive steakhouses around the world. For example, 800 grams (28 oz) of dry-aged bone-in tomahawk runs €100. If you aren't a fan of beef but somehow ended up here, a couple of seafood and mangalica-based entrees are available, too.

While prices and meat selections are comparable between KNRDY and Prime Steak, another high-end steakhouse located around the corner from KNRDY, the minimalist, industrial chic design lends a more casual air to KNRDY (and of the two, only KNRDY serves dry-aged meats).
