Known For

The lowdown

Museum Mile is full of museum cafés, but none quite like this elegant evocation of a Viennese-style kaffeehaus at Ronald Lauder’s Neue Galerie New York. The artistic sensibility permeates the café, with its reproductions of Josef Hoffmann sconces, Adolf Loos bentwood chairs, and Otto Wagner fabrics. And the theme continues with tortes (Sacher and Linzer), Bavarian ham and eggs for breakfast, goulash soup and wiener schnitzel for lunch, and Thursday-night cabaret. Friday through Sunday, dinner is served until 9 p.m.
