It was cold, windy and rainy as were walking on the upper east side. My husband wanted goulash soup and there we were at the Neue Galerie! I don't normally think about dining in a museum but the 2 restaurants in this place are really quite good if you like German food. Café Sabarsky is in the basement and was... More

The Cafe Sabarsky at the Neue Galerie in Manhattan is a cozy, charming place that evokes a Viennese cafe from the turn of the last century, down to the Austrian and German language newspapers available to read. It serves authentic Viennese dishes, delicious open faced sandwiches, a selection of Austrian and German beers, excellent coffees and desserts, and an accommodating... More

A quaint cafe inside the museum, busy but worth it. Specializing in different type of sausages. There where 4 types while i was there. Served traditional with sauerkraut and potato. Lovely Apple strudel. There is other food available , but it is known for the sausages. Worth a look while in Museum district.

A 'hidden treasure' inside the lovely Sabarsky Museum (1048 5th Ave, just blocks from Metropolitan Museum), this cafe's menu features delicious, authentic sausage/wurst dishes & sides, imported beer/wines, yummy sachertorte and strudle.

This wonderful Cafe, is in the Neue Gallerie.. which shows all German and Austrian paintings.. There are two cafes in the now former mansion..converted to a beautiful gallery. This was my favorite cafe, both have the same menu, of German/Austrian foods, wines and deserts/cafes. Loved it beautifully paneled wood and marble fireplace.. and large windows looking out over central park..... More

Cafe Sabarsky has an interesting menu you won't find anywhere else, and the feel is very old Europe. Service is efficient and fast, and meals quite good. You will have to stand in line to get a table, and depending on the draw of the exhibit at Neue Galerie, the line can be long. Egon Schiele exhibit is there now,... More

This was a gem of a find. Expect a wait due to its popularity. There is a extension of the cafe in the basement, but if you can wait or are lucky, vie for the main room. The Hungarian beef goulash and the spatzle with wild mushrooms were quite delicious. There is also an array of desserts to choose from... More

The ambiance alone is worth a visit, as it takes you to a Vienna cafe. Food and wine are equally authentic, tasty weisswurst with pretzel, and delicious desserts-all 'mit schlag', just like in Vienna. Just a little north of the Met Museum makes it a convenient place to recharge.

This place has real, Viennese, Sacher Tort. You don't need to pay the gallery entry fee to use this restaurant. Apart from that it is a lovely, wood-panelled setting and even has authentic period fittings as would be found in a turn-of-the-century Viennese establishment. The light fittings and some items of furniture would be equally at home in the gallery.... More

My husband and I have traveled and taught in Austria and miss the food, especially the deserts. While in NYC, we stopped here after a friend recommended it. We had sausages, kraut, and potatoes, but left room to share one of their fabulous deserts. We will return.
