Nobelhart and Schmutzig review – cloaked contemporary cuisine close to Checkpoint Charlie

This review of a Berlin restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage Berlin, like most major cities, has more than its fair share of tourist trap restaurants in and around its historical, heavily touristed centre. It also has some surprises up its sleeve, such as Nobelhart & Schmutzig. Located a literal stone’s throw … Continue reading

Boopshi’s review – Fitzrovia schnitzel and bratwurst

Hearty party Update 28/03/2016 – this restaurant has now closed Traditional Austrian food is never going to take over the world. At the risk of making a crude generalisation, old school Austrian food at its best is tasty, but also rather heavy with lashings of meat and rich pastries. Still, there’s definitely a place for … Continue reading

Renger-Patzsch review – hearty Berlin dining year round

This review of a Berlin restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage Berlin has no shortage of restaurants serving up food from outside the German-speaking world as well as contemporary German cuisine, but sometimes you just need the traditional, old-fashioned lashings of pork that the Germans are famous for. Renger-Patzsch serves up … Continue reading

Steirereck review – eating out in a Vienna park before sunset

This review of a Vienna restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage. Steirereck is an unusual restaurant since its premises are located within one of Vienna’s city parks – the Stadtpark. The Stadtpark isn’t Vienna’s most picturesque green space and the exterior of Steirereck’s building isn’t much to look at either, … Continue reading

MediterraNeo review – InterContinental dining in Vienna

This review of a Vienna restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage. Since I usually travel alone I often dine alone when overseas, but for my dinner at MediterraNeo in Vienna I had the pleasure of eating with Sue-Ellen and Uncle Monty. The horribly-named MediterraNeo is the resident restaurant at the InterContinental … Continue reading

Anna Sacher review – home of the Sachertorte and so much more

This review of a Vienna restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage. The Sacher Hotel is perhaps the most famous of Vienna’s grand and opulent hotels if only for one thing – the Sachertorte. This chocolate sponge cake has a layer of apricot jam in the middle and the entire thing … Continue reading

Eisvogel review – Vienna dining Las Vegas-style

This review of a Vienna restaurant is a break from The Picky Glutton’s usual London-based coverage. Vienna, for most people, conjures up images of fat cakes, waltzes, prancing horses and perhaps a grand, but fading neoclassical imperial capital. If all of that leaves you panting for the cheesy artifice of Las Vegas, then Eisvogel could … Continue reading
