With the charm of an Austrian Gasthaus and the elegance of haute cuisine, Plachutta prides itself in preparing exemplary Tafelspitz (a traditional boiled beef standby) with potatoes and vegetables. Cookbook author and beef specialist Ewald Plachutta no longer runs this central Vienna restaurant, but his son Mario is following in his father's footsteps. The only-in-Vienna food is so good that fresh renditions of the original keep sprouting up. The Plachutta family now owns six restaurants in Vienna—try the Plachuttas Gasthaus zur Oper branch (5–7 Walfischgasse; 43-1512-2251). The staff can border on surly, but the high gray wainscoting and black leather banquettes make this the best-looking of the bunch. It's also well placed, a block from the Opera House.—Update by Raphael Kadushin

Open daily 11:30 am to 11:15 pm.
