Christian Halper’s Tian is a paean to rare and long-forgotten vegetables. A contemporary, chandelier-lit dining room studded with hanging plants is the setting for three-toque chef Paul Ivić’s beautifully composed meat-free tasting menus – with each course based around a few select ingredients. Dishes such as goat’s cheese and lentil soup, kohlrabi with peas, and green almond quinoa are typical, with sparse menu descriptions lending an element of surprise. Organic juices and wines support both the cuisine and the philosophy behind it – which can also be experienced at Vienna’s more casual Tian Bistro and the Tian-run café at the Kunst Haus.
