Steirereck is the go-to for cutting-edge cooking in Vienna. Set in the city’s verdant Stadtpark, it’s a curious juxtaposition. The setting is a modern architectural marvel of mirrored glass, rough-luxe concrete and crisp linens, the food, meanwhile – fed by a rooftop garden and choice suppliers – is firmly rooted in the humble, quality produce of the Styrian region. At the helm is chef Heinz Reitbauer, whose char with beeswax, yellow carrot, pollen and sour cream says everything about his slant being equal parts theatre, flavour and reverence for regional ingredients. Elsewhere, a modern take on goulash with spelt and medlars keep the locals coming back.
