This is my wife’s grandparents’ restaurant in Fot. My wife’s grandfather, was Gabor Weisz who was born in Pilisszentkereszt in 1860. His original occupation was tinsmith.We know he worked on the Fot synagogue and participated in its construction. He had a spice shop, next to that a pub and restaurant. When he died in 1922, his wife took over the business all the way up to the Jewish laws. [see: anti-Jewish laws in Hungary] Grandma died in 1943.
