A Boros

The A Boros (loosely translated as ‘The Vinous’) is a wine bar and restaurant that pursues the mission of not only offering quality cuisine in the town of Sárospatak, but also showcasing the best wines from the north-east of the Tokaj region where excellent wines are yet more difficult to find than in the south-west.  They occasionally organise themed dinners with wines that feature dishes made to recipes by local winemakers.
