Welcome Dinner in Márványmenyasszony Restaurant

This pub was founded by vinedresser of merit József Böhm from Buda, who welcomed his daughter’s wedding party as the first guests to enter the gates. The wedding feast lasted several days. When, after some days, the guests accompanied the young couple to the carriage in the street, the small young wife wearing a lace dress with white tulle fainted at the door of the house; the white-lipped and pale-faced woman was taken by her husband onto his lap. She seemed to be lifeless. Someone started speaking from the standing, loafing crowd: Look! The bride has turned to marble! (“Marble” is “márvány” in Hungarian.) As a result of this scene, the name of the pub came into general use.
