Heuer am Karlsplatz
The restaurant “Heuer” is located at one of the most central spots in Vienna - surrounded by a pretty garden plus terrace. The building on Karlsplatz is shared with the Kunsthalle Wien. Following extensive renovations, the popular trendy meeting place has had a completely new look since March 2014. Green leather benches and Thonet chairs provide a cozy ambience in the cool glass structure. The bar is now a central element in the Heuer.
A particular eye-catcher is the array of giant preserving jars that decorate the entire rear wall of the restaurant. The preserving jars are not only for decoration, but also a storage feature for chef Peter Fallnbügl, who has pickled and preserved all sorts of fruit and vegetables here - some of which he picked himself. He has also produced syrups and made his own sauerkraut, as well as pickling rhubarb and lemons in vinegar. Fallnbügl uses these ingredients to make, for example, really great “shrubs”, which are refreshing vinegar-based drinks. And, of course, he uses the pickles to cook with. The range of dishes is characterized by the smoker and tandoori oven in the kitchen. Chicken and flatbreads get a unique flavor in the tandoori clay oven, the fish a special note from the smoker.
Great cocktails are also served in the Heuer in the evening, while the adjacent room offers space for larger events. Next to the restaurant is the KarlsGarten, a show and research garden that is open to the public and run independently of the restaurant.
