Vestibül, Vienna

2 Dr. Karl Lueger-Ring
Tel: 43 1532 4999's insider take:

This showcase for chef Christian Domschitz's updated Viennese cuisine is worth a stop for the interior drama alone. Located in the former imperial entrance of the Burgtheater, the dining room, an exuberant romp of heavily veined marble and plaster cast cherubs, looks like a stage set. Domschitz's equally playful cooking can waver. His signature lobster gets lost under a big overstated mound of cabbage and lobster sauce. But beetroot soup with smoked eel, and a pike perch paired with morels, are showstoppers.—Raphael Kadushin
