Etele Plaza opens with Hungary’s most spacious food court

The food court of Etele Plaza scheduled to open this September in Budapest, Hungary will feature a direct connection to the roof terrace, unique interior design, and a wide selection of gastronomy options, including many popular quick-service restaurants, cafés and open kitchen concept. The requirements and dining preferences of all generations are considered during the design of the unprecedentedly spacious venue among Hungarian shopping malls.

The next generation shopping center’s food court, currently being developed by Futureal in Újbuda, close to Etele square, covers almost the entire third floor of the building, and will allow over 1,000 people to dine comfortably and safely at any one time.

Several well-known restaurant chains have already signed up to open at the city’s first smart plaza during the development phase, so food court guests will be able to choose among popular brands including Buddha Bar, Hummus Bar, Bellozzo, Pizza Me, Zing Burger, Burger King, KFC, teppanyaki Japanese grill, Titiz and a Crépes Factory. Other tenants will include Starbucks, EscoBar & Café, à table! and Sushi Roll Restaurant.

„The excellent location of Etele Plaza, its stylish and shopper-focused environment, as well as the 21st century solutions and services have proven attractive to hospitality businesses. We are in talks with many other restaurants and are looking forward to seeing brands that would further diversify the gastronomy offering of our shopping center,”said Márk Balástyai, Project Director of Etele Plaza.

Futureal is developing the dining area and connected public spaces according to its ‘Stay Safe’ initiative, designed to maximize health and safety. One important aspect of the layout is a flexible seating concept where the tables and chairs can be moved freely within the food court. Whenever needed, the adaptable space allows for social distancing, as well as offering options to organize unique events.
