Szabina Szulló – Tamás Széll
For chefs Szabina Szulló and Tamás Széll, Hungarian cuisine needs to be celebrated. They have built a community of producers, collectors, and farmers to ensure consistent quality.
In 2007, the couple, both chefs, started working at Onyx. This famous restaurant was awarded one Michelin star in 2011. In 2016, they left Onyx to open Stand25 Bisztró in 2017, aiming to create a place for families to meet and enjoy traditional and modern Hungarian cuisine in a family atmosphere. In 2018, their second restaurant, the fine-dining Stand, received a star just nine months later.
French technology is evident. The bright red beef stew is light, and the salty lemon preserves add a welcome tartness. The foie gras melts in your mouth with some English celery and mustard seeds.

Hungarian gastronomy is full of possibilities, and from the very start they have felt that showcasing it in all its beauty and diversity is of the utmost importance. This is what they strive at their restaurants.
