For breakfast, lunch, or an early dinner on or even near Museum Mile, there's no place better than this transplanted Viennese cafe, set in a wood-paneled mansion designed by Carrere and Hastings (architects of the New York Public Library at 42nd Street). Actually part of the Neue Galerie, a museum of Austrian and German art , it serves all the Teutonic specialties, from bratwurst to goulash to creamy spaetzle, along with an assortment of lighter salads and sandwiches. These are all expertly executed, but save room for the delicious pastries and Viennese coffee, so strong it will grow hair on your tongue. Warning: Since this place has no peer, there’s always a line to get in. Allot an extra 30 minutes to wait for a seat (they don’t take reservations).
