Vienna when you can't get a reservation (ie. New Years)

Hello, Chowhounds!

My partner and I have decided rather last minute to spend New Years in Vienna. Miraculously, we found accommodation (thank you, airbnb!), and are now wondering where we should eat. We've given up on the idea of getting reservations anywhere for dinner on New Years Eve, but were wondering about a late lunch on the 31st, or a brunch on the 1st. (This would also help with our budget.) We're in town from early in the morning of the 31st to mid-morning on the 2nd.

Any suggestions for either of those meals, or for interesting street food to look out for on NYE? (Or to avoid?!) I'm American, but currently doing research in Ukraine, and he's German, so we're pretty experienced when it comes to Central/East European cuisine. That said, we'd probably prefer local flavor. (If that local flavor includes great offerings from immigrant communities, that's wonderful, too, but we'd probably like at least one meal to be more traditional.)

Many thanks, and please feel free to refer me to past threads if this question has been asked and answered in recent months.
