Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Resembling the best sort of new-wave Viennese beisl (neighbourhood brasserie), Bistro Délicat has stylish, simple decor (white tiled walls at the front, black at the rear) and a welcoming vibe. The Austro-French menu starts with breakfast; toasted sourdough and bagels sit alongside savoury dumplings with scrambled egg and chives, bircher muesli and croque monsieur. Some of this menu is also available at lunch, alongside steak frites, nürnberger sausages with own-made sauerkraut (a softer, less acid version than the average shop-bought one) and a first-class bouillabaisse. The latter also appears at dinner, together with a glorious tafelspitz – rump of beef cooked in consommé, with bone marrow, creamed spinach, rösti and sauces, and a superior beef goulash, served with spätzle and pickled gherkin. The generous portions – and the excellent bread – meant that a much-anticipated kaiserschmarrn (pan-fried soufflé-pancake pieces with roasted plum compote) was out of the question. The cheeseboard is sourced from Hamish Johnston, just up the road; coffee is taken seriously and carefully made. Like Kipferl, Bistro Délicat manages to serve Austrian wines at reasonable prices (along with some French bottles). A lovely local, with charming staff to match.
