sorry to hear about that. particularly due that Do & Co is international orientated with airline and formula one catering engagements. pity

There is not so much wrong with German or Austrian cuisine, per se, but with the local clientele. Most people in these two countries, seem to believe, the quality of the food is judged by the size of the portions.



Was that for one person or a table of four sharing?

I <3 Vienna, been there many times but not in a couple years now.

I have a story about the "American Bar" that you have a pic of. On one of my first trips there I stopped in at that place thinking, "Hey, I'm an American!" I ended up hanging out with the consul from a middle eastern country and he showed me around town that night. Those guys know how to party - everything they aren't supposed to do at home ad what-not.

The portions can be too big, but schnitzel and rice... I could eat this every day and die happy.

btw, this is the "Loos Bar" in reminiscence to Adolf Loos.

...and yes these guys know how to live good.

I never knew the old Vienna before the war with its Strauss music, its glamour and its easy charm. Constantinople suited me better. I really got to know it in the classic period of the black market. We'd run anything if people wanted it enough....


Anyone?

You really need to get some polarizing filter to take picture through glasses.

Very beautiful city.

And I like Prague too in Eastern Europe for items that you haven't pictured.

Vienna is real class, history and culture.

While my hometown Houston is genuinely plug ugly, I've always loved it.

Thanks, Fritzl

That's very true. Germany and Austria are divided by the same culture*...great pictures, fritzl!

*yet, although it is somewhat shameful, all the great, nasty ideologies of the 20th century- from psychoanalysis to Communism and Nazism- have been 'invented' in or around Vienna (cf. the lives of Hitler, Marx, Herzl, Freud, Adler)...
