I can't really think of anything with a Budapest flavor but if you want something aggressive that takes advantages of Nf3 you can aim fo a Benoni or play Nc6, when c4 leads to a Chigorin where white has foregone his best (3.Nc3) line.
Of course white play timidly and force an equal, dull position but you can't really avoid that.

The short answer is that it's easy enough for White to avoid anything with 2.Nf3.  Many of the people playing 2.Nf3 probably wouldn't play d5, and although Black is fine, I don't think this is what you are looking for.

Perhaps the only option that really exploits White's move order is 2...b5, but I'm not sure if anyone would recommend that.

An opening that fits well to the Budapest is the Blumenfeld Gambit, eiter after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.c4 (but 3.Bg5) c5 4.d5 b5 or after 2.Nf3 c5 3.d5 b5 4.c4 (but 4.a4, 4.Bg5) e6 or after 2.Nf3 c5 3.d5 e6 4.c4 (but 4.Nc3) b5.

Budapest - 2. Nf3

As a long-time KID player who's become bored with closed positions, I'm migrating towards either the Budapest gambit or the Chigorin.  My natural inclination is towards the Budapest (hence the post here rather than d4 d5 forum) but I'm stuck if my opponent plays 2. Nf3 (as they do far too often  Sad).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best response to 2.Nf3 that would maintain a Budapest flavour to the game?  I've checked the posts and couldn't find one discussing this but would be glad of a few pointers.
