Labstelle, a dinner experience in Vienna

This was hands-down the best meal/dinner I’ve had and it happened out of curiosity!

We struggled to find a place in Vienna that wasn’t fully booked tonight and then I remembered this place we stumbled upon close to our hotel. They were able to book us a table for the four of us, Shana, my parents and myself.

We sat down to discover that almost everything is made in premise, from baking their own bread to pickling their own vegetables. Everything is done to minimize the distance between the ingredients to the plate on the table. And they offered an intriguing “surprise menu” where you allow the chef and his team to cook dishes for you, over four courses and one amuse-bouche.

From the carrot amuse-bouche, the freshly smoked fish, the pumpkin consommé, the veal, all the way to the dessert pumpkin delicacy and ice-cream, everything tasted delicious, blending subtly with the wine and its sides of vegetables and fresh seeds.

Everything has been perfect in ways we couldn’t have imagined and we’re living Vienna on a very-high note!
