Fodor's Expert Review Café Sabarsky

$$ Upper East Side Austrian Fodor's Choice

In the Neue Galerie, this stately coffeehouse is meant to duplicate the Viennese café experience and does a good job of it, with Art Deco furnishings, a selection of daily newspapers, and cases filled with cakes, strudels, and Sacher tortes. Museumgoers and locals love to linger here over coffee—so much so that it's sometimes a challenge to find a seat (there's a less aesthetically pleasing outpost of the café in the basement). There is also a menu of heartier fare—created by Michelin-starred Austrian chef Kurt Gutenbrunner—of goulash, sandwiches, and variations on a sausage theme.
