Mast Wine Bistro
Two of Vienna's leading sommeliers have also brought a leading chef on board for their wine bistro. So it's almost impossible to say now whether the wine or the food plays the bigger role at the Mast, because both are stunning. The exciting wine list focuses on natural wine. Naturalness is also a focus of the cuisine. The operators promise honest food, without foams and dabs of jelly. The individual ingredients come together authentically on the plate.
The young chef has already worked in the best kitchens in the world. So it's no surprise that he can conjure up wonderful compositions from simple ingredients. Hokkaido pumpkin with pear and chicory tasted fantastic, but has still been surpassed by lamb belly with parsley roots and baby broccoli. The indescribably tender meat is served with a thick jus.
However, the Mast is not some exaggerated star-awarded restaurant but a small, easy going spot. The ambience bears all the hallmarks of Scandinavian style: simple with lots of wood. You could even throw the modern buzzword 'bistronomy' back into the race ...
In the middle of the 1st district, on a square right next to the famous Anchor Clock, the Joma is a relaxed spot to visit. The breakfast menu is a highlight and has a wide range of dishes to choose from. The rest of the food on offer is just as diverse. The Joma serves up light, international cuisine. The salads are creatively prepared and taste fantastic. Meat, fish and seafood are mostly cooked on the grill. Viennese classics such as schnitzel can also be ordered.
The restaurant was designed by the famous Austrian architect Gregor Eichinger. He opted for a warm, airy and modern design - with a touch of class. In summer, the culinary delights can be enjoyed in a pretty dining garden directly on Hoher Markt.
