If your friends describe you as “attracted to slightly morbid curiosities or fond of meat”, this Viennese spot is for you! The restaurant is located right across Gate No.1 of the capital’s biggest cemetery Zentralfriedhof. It is the world’s seventh largest cemetery and “last home” to about 3 million deceased. This is where you should hop off tram 71 if you want to start your walk at the Jewish cemetery. To me, walking up and down its paths is a quiet highlight of Vienna.
Veg[etari]an options are expanding but still limited at the Concordia Schlössl. Carnivores will probably choose the Wiener Schnitzel! Variations of the typical Austrian dish here are curious, nonetheless delicious. Most come with salad, rolled up, or stuffed with various fillings. The stuffing might seem strange to you, yet the chefs have thought it through, and their creations are, in fact, well-received. On the menu, one reads odd names, and there is even a popcorn-Schnitzel.
One more peculiar thing: the prices. Numbers are € 11.88 or € 14.91. The reason is they converted the prices when Austria’s former currency Schilling was replaced by the Euro, yet didn’t bother setting round figures. The soft lighting and old wooden floor set for a romantic candlelight dinner at Concordia Schlössl. And there’s a new event series taking place here, the Cirque Rouge Open Stage; your next Varieté date possibility is the summer festival on June 7th!
