Wien - Dinner recommendations - week of April 20-25

weezy1074 | Apr 13, 201510:10 PM     9

Looking for some recommendations for places for casual dinners in Wien next week.
Most posts are older ...so...wondering of this list, which is still a good place to go, for traditional flavors/restaraurants. I am coming from SF, so I am not looking for "ethnic cuisine" simply traditional Viennese cuisine or some other local gems, or good modern Viennese restaurants.
Any places to avoid?(tourist traps or otherwise)

2 - 4 diners will be with me depending on the night.
Vielen Dank!

Below is what I found as recently at 2007 for recommended restaurants ---

Best high end places (definitely reservation required):
Meinl am Graben, Steirereck, Palais Coburg

Best traditional Viennese places (for Tafelspitz, Wiener Schnitzel, etc.):
Plachutta (several places), Eckel, Zum schwarzen Rauchfangkehrer, Huth, Wirtshaus im Palais Kinsky, Glacisbeisl

Best old-style Beisel with Viennese food (as they come into my mind):
Immervoll, Beim Czaak, Cafe Engländer, Zum Reznicek, Zur schwarzen Katze (the last addition, low price - highest quality, highly recommended if you tolerate smokers), Altwiener Gastwirtschaft Schilling, Schnattl, Zu den drei Hacken, Pfudl, Wild, Zur goldenen Glocke, Zur goldenen Kugel, Zum Scherer, etc., etc....

Best inventive new Viennese cuisine (where I would go):
Mraz und Sohn, Zum Finsteren Stern, Kutschker44, Gaumenspiel, Horvath,

and the wine bars:
There is a wonderful chain of wine shops with bars, Wein& Co: Reservation required if you want a table to sit down!!

There is a wine bar in the basement of Meinl am Graben, excellent wine, a little bit expensive , nice basic menu

Less expensive is Unger und Klein on Rudolfsplatz / Gölsdorfgasse

A favorite is Cantina e l´arte in the basement of Dr.Karl Luegerring 14: wine from the Friuli region in Italy, and very original food from the same area.
