The room is to die for with magnificent boiserie walls, delicate Thonet chairs and views of Central Park as is the authentic Viennese cuisine (from hearty bratwurst to delicate pastries to the most delicious coffee). The whole experience is refined without being formal and cold.
Café Sabarsky, which bears the name of Neue Galerie co-founder Serge Sabarsky, draws its inspiration from the great Viennese cafés that served as important centers of intellectual and artistic life at the turn of the century. It is outfitted with period objects, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann, furniture by Adolf Loos, and banquettes that are upholstered with a 1912 Otto Wagner fabric. A Bösendorfer grand piano graces one corner of the Café, and is used for all cabaret, chamber, and classical music performances at the museum.
