New up and coming restaurant in Vienna. Fabian Günzel who trained in the Palais Coburg and then had a short stint at the Sofitel Loft opened up his place in 2018 in a part of Vienna which very few people would call posh.
I would call his cuisine "focused French". He is not a locavore, most of his ingredients come from France, his technique is distinctly French but he reduces his dishes to two components. There are some unusual combination like savoy and caviar, but he always makes it work. The foie gras gets pressed into a cucumber which creates a nice contrast between the sweetness of the foie and the acidity of the cucumber. His fishes and meats are executed to perfection and shows his rigorous classical training.
A fresh wind for Vienna and great addition to the dining scene. I am sure that this is not the end of an already great development. I'll certainly go and check in soon.
