restaruant suggstions and reservations

Hi. I will be in Vienna in late May and will stay at Le Meridien. I am from NYC so I like good authentic food, can be expensive or not - as long as it's very, very good. We prefer waht the locals like, no tourist traps. Do we need reservations (like you do in NYC)? Does anyone have suggestions - does not have to be near the hotel, necessarily. I saw Figmueller restaruant on a cooking channel and it looks good but when I read a review, it looked like a tourist trap. Any suggestions?

We have " authentic food" in Vienna too.

For better restaurants reservations are needed.

Some possible restaurnts-

Steirereck- in the Stadt Park- international food- fixed multi course menu.

Excelent choice of wines. Usually excelent service.

Plachutta- on Wollzeile- city center-vienna specialties - frquented by many Vienna businessmen.

Yohm- asian specialties Petersplatz near Graben.

Trattoria Martinelli - at Freyung in city center- a very nice dining garden in good weather.

Vestibul- in the Burgtheater on the Ring.- interesting international menu.

Salm Brau- near to the Belvedere Palace- a brewery with good food.

Perhaps with the exception of the Salm Brau I would not consider these " touristy"

Figlmüllers a tourist restaurant world famous - but schnitzel is good., potato salad is great.

If you do not mind eating in a crowded, smoked filled atmosphere , often at a table with strangers it is OK.

If you really want to eat their food - do not enter their original place in the small alley- go around the corner to their other place- fewer tourists, no sharing of tables- nice atmosphere- same food.
