Vienna meal pre/post opera -- suggestions please?

ChinaCat | Mar 23, 2012 01:39 PM

We will be in Vienna in early May, and one night (Wednesday) we have tickets for the Staatsoper at 7:30.

If I were in New York, I would eat dinner at 5:30, and lots of places would have pre-theater menus, this would be normal behavior.

If I were in Paris, I would have a snack, then a light meal afterwards because nothing would be open for dinner at 5:30, and Parisians would look at me like I had 2 heads if I tried to make a reservation that early.

I'm guessing that Vienna is more like Paris, is this right? Do people generally dine after the opera?

And can you make suggestions for both options...perhaps a quick snack at a cafe...a glass of wine, a small plate or 2. And then a good place for a light meal afterwards?

Many thanks!
