City Centre (1st district)
The city’s most glamorous restaurant, on a side wing of Vienna’s famous Burgtheater. Imperial coaches once passed through this marble-clad grand hall, where restaurant guests now tuck their napkins into their collars and indulge in gourmet food. The award-winning restaurant serves up inventive dishes from top chef Christian Domschitz, whose most popular creation is the ‘Hummerkrautfleisch’, a traditional cabbage dish refined with lobster meat; it’s been a winner for over a decade now. Also on offer is ‘Beuschel’: a creamy ragout made from calf’s lung, heart and root vegetables topped with a dumpling.
