I love the outstanding concept of this restaurant in the charming neighborhood of Spittelberg. In case you were wondering about the name, that’s the district it is located in. Vienna’s 23 districts are all numbered: which particular district it is you can tell from the two digits in the middle.
Let me tell you how it works: once you get there, you are asked what you do NOT want to eat (name allergies and ingredients you really can’t have on your plate).
Next step: wait for your first surprise!
The whole experience reminds me of those first childhood Christmases; the excitement and curiosity about the unknown are very similar. Course after course is served and by the third one you are usually asked if you want another dish or dessert. This may sound like a lot, yet portions are designed for several courses.
The chef’s daily inspiration leads to which ingredients he buys at the market. This way individual menus will surprise you every time you make a reservation here – which is recommended, since the place only has a limited number of tables.
The boss, Dagmar Wulz, has just changed the previously dinner-only opening hours, so now you can also have your lunch here during the week. This is called “running cooking” with the concept being: order a surprise menu for the price of €10.70 (two courses).
My personal résumé: a bit pricey but absolutely worth it. If you are seeking adventure within city grounds, come to 1070!
