The year 1910 saw the inauguration of the Urania under the auspices of Emperor Franz Josef, and today this beautifully restored Jugendstil building is one of Vienna's trendiest locations. The interior design is cool, modern, and urban; its biggest boon besides the great food is the view from the terrace across the water. Chef Norbert Fiedler's creations include fillet of trout on chanterelle risotto or spicy prawn linguine with a splash of lime, all brought to table by some of the handsomest waiters in town (rumor has it they are mostly models). Open times are an accommodating 9 am until 2 am, but the big event is Sunday brunch. The best deals are the two-course set lunches, served Tuesday to Friday and costing under €10.
