Cafe Sabarsky: More Viennese than Vienna

cafe sabarsky1

Good for: Dining alone during the weekday, small groups for brunch, and everything from first to fiftieth date lunch (because if the date goes well, you can walk around the museum afterwards).

Atmosphere: Café Sabarsky is more classic than a classic Viennese café. No one rushes you: even though there is a line of thirty people deep outside the door, you could literally sit for hours in conversation over coffee and Apfelstrudel. Even better, you’re always encouraged to have another mélange, a Viennese version of the cappuccino.

Why we like it: Aside from the fact that it’s located in the Neue Galerie (which has the best collection of Klimts in NYC), the mastermind behind the cuisine Kurt Gutenbrunner is the pioneer of Austrian cuisine in NYC. This guy can cook, and can make anyone a fan of Ausrtrian food. It is a perfect combination of classic dishes with elevated preparation. 

What to order: Every Viennese traditional dish on the menu. The Palatschinken, which is a crepe with trout and horseradish cream, the Crispy Potato Pancake with Salmon, and of course, the Schnitzel, which is a classic fried Viennese cutlet. To end, the Apfelstrudel is light and dusted with powdered sugar, and the rich Sacher Tort.
