hi...we're NYC hounds with a first time 5-day trip to Vienna coming up (and Budapest after but i'll post separately)...have started reading through past posts...we're looking for rustic/traditional places (nothing modern, nothing fusiony, nothing overly fancy)...so far we have on our maybe list:
- Gasthaus Poschl
- Zum Schwarzen Kameel
- Zum Weissen Rauchfangkehrer
- Restaurant Sperl
- Cafe Corbaci
We're staying in the Neubeu/St.Ulrich area, and going to Albertina, Leopold, and Belvedere museums plus art galleries...i'm guessing our plan will usually be to eat a big breakfast at the hotel, spend a lot of the day in museums and wandering, then eat an early dinner...we're also adamant non-smokers: of the places above, i know Poschl is non-smoking -- we can deal w/ a small bit of smoke but if any of the above are known as being esp smokey, we'd want to avoid...interested mainly in traditional Austrian, but open to some regional Italian/Croatian/etc if there is a great place...we drink mainly wine, so wine bars w/ good food welcome too...we have room for 5 dinners...
Any advice most appreciated on which places might work in terms of our preferences and in concert w/ our museum schedule (i.e. for an early dinner after one of the 3 above museums, or walking distance from St Ulrich area...
Thanks in advance...
