Attached to the Burgtheater, this was once the carriage vestibule of the emperor's court theater. Today, the dining room with marble Corinthian columns, coffered arcades, and flickering candlelight adds romance, but don't expect high drama. An example of Ringstrasse architecture, the Burgtheater offers splendor at its most staid. Christian Domschitz, one of Austria's best chefs—and of the same family who owns Hansen—took over the kitchen in 2010. The menu changes frequently,
but often includes Domschitz' famous Hummerkrautfleisch, a Viennese creamy cabbage dish, to which Domschitz adds his one of his specialties: lobster.
