I'm going to Vienna for the first time ever in a little over a month's time. I've already got the museum/sightseeing side of things sorted out, but if anyone has restaurant/cafe/other food recommendations, I'm all ears! (For reference, I'll be staying just outside the Ringstrasse near Mariahilferstrasse and the Museumsquartier.)

Thanks in advance for any and all advice!

I do hope a certain medievalist will be joining you! Have a fabulous time and wrap up warm 'cos if it's anything like it is here, you'll need to.

Rachel! How fortuitous! I just received this link from a friend this very day, and I'd kill to go to one of these and eat tafelspitz. Heck I'd order it just to say it!

okay I see that's pretty long, if that doesn't work check this out.

Hmmm, that doesn't seem to work. Anyway there are 3 Plachutta restaurants in Vienna so maybe you could check them out and see if any are convenient.

David, thanks for the links... alas, I am a vegetarian (probably should have mentioned before Embarassed ) so won't be able to enjoy Tafelspitz, but I did enjoy reading about the history of both the dish and the restaurant! I might check out Plachutta anyway and see if they have something I can eat...
