We are doing an embarrassingly quick trip to Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest in September.
The Chowhound feedback on Budapest was terrific, so now I'm seeking even more advice and
counsel. For Prague we have three dinners and two lunches - as of now I have Kampa Park, Cerny Kohout and V Zatisi on my sort of "must" list but could be talked out of these and into others. I am retired from the food world (journalistic side not cooking but definitely eating) and love good food but hate pretentious, tortured food - and places.
Am waffling the most on Vienna restaurants. Like the sound of Plachutta with the tafelspitz - also considering Immervoll and Mainl au Graben. Stomach sounds fun too. Totally unsure about cafes and lunch places. Our friends think we have to go to the Sacher Hotel to have sacher torte. Why do I think it might be better at another venue?
Grateful for any help - and promise to give feedback upon our return.
