Concierge.com's insider take:
Magazin opened in 2003 and shook everything up in this essentially conservative town. A complex of renovated burgher houses joined by a modern glass gallery, the pioneering miniature culinary empire features a well-stocked food shop (including 600 Austrian wines), a cooking school, and a determinedly stylish restaurant. Dinner is served at a long, 28-seat communal table, in a cavelike bunker; the menu makes up for the rest of Salzburg's caution with exuberant dishes such as rump of lamb paired with octopus and curd-semolina dumplings, grilled scallops on orange crème, and a spicy hot chocolate with chile.
Open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10 am to midnight, September through June; open daily 10 am to midnight, July and August.
