Sophistication and elegance, Austrian-style
Popular plate: Veal entrecote with chantarelle risotto.
Talk of the town: All the waiters wear entirely white, from top to toe, so it's sometimes hard to see them.
If there is such a thing as Austrian fine dining, then you'll find it here at Schneeweiss. Meaning "snow white" in English, the name sums up the virginal, minimalist interior, with clean lines and the most dazzling white tablecloths, napkins and drapes you'll ever see. Even as the restaurant prepares to shut at well past midnight, it's so bright in here, it could be midday.
The menu changes frequently, but dishes like the perch fillet in beurre blanc, and salsify-ricotta strudel, are just two examples of the fineries you can expect here. Classy and stylish.
