Time Out says

The 120-year-old Society was founded to “cultivate literature,” but these days members seem more devoted to playing cards. Call ahead to reserve a spot among the poker-obsessed crowd for a three-course $20 prix-fixe meal. The menu changes daily, but Hungarian standards such as sweet-and-sour pickled herring make frequent appearances. A disznotoros (sausage plate) with blood and spicy sausages and kielbasa is a winner thanks to the snappy natural casings sealing in bursts of flavor. Close with coglof, a fruit-filled cake that’s a variation on babka.
