While visiting the Neue Gallery we stopped for delicious apple strudel, Sacher torte and Viennese coffee. The service was superb, prices were reasonable.

We have eaten here many times. Lovely European atmosphere, although it can be a little pricey. We had a lovely breakfast but when we asked for jam for our toast we were given 1 tiny sample jar. In the past jam and honey were included...More

The food may be great, or it may be horrid. I'll never know because we never got past the onerous security. The plan for the day was to spend some time walking in Central Park, have a civilized lunch at Cafe Sabarsky, and then the...More
