Anna Sacher Review
The Sachertorte is the culmination of a family saga that began with Franz Sacher, Prince von Metternich's pastry chef. Franz's son and his wife, Anna, Vienna's hostess with the mostest, opened the 19th-century hotel. The restaurant Anna Sacher, with sparkling chandeliers casting a warm glow on green walls hung with gilt frames, offers a lighter version of traditional Austrian cuisine. Award-winning chef Werner Pichlmaier conjures up amazing dishes such as goose liver with plum and poppy-seed noodles or beef with golden oyster mushrooms and baked potatoes. Try the slightly less formal Rote Bar, at the front of the hotel, for the classic Tafelspitz (boiled beef), the favorite dish of Emperor Franz Josef.
