I loved this little place that I was looking for so I could have kaiserscharrn, an Austrian dish that I'd never had in a restaurant
The place has been open for some time judging by the wear on everything--but that's no criticism--it just seemed like people had enjoyed the place for a long time
it's easy to get to from the subway
for Sunday brunch, there were a bunch of unruly children, but that's not the restaurant's fault--it's just that they welcome families, so take your chances on weekends in the middle of the day
service was excellent--can't comment much on any food
price was reasonable for what I got--you get used to $3 coffee in NYC

You could be in Vienna. Austrian menu and only Austrian wines on list!! Great atmosphere, good food and very fast service. Lighting was a bit dim though!!

The Blaue Gans calls itself a Wirtshaus, which is a no nonsense eatery. In fact that is what it is, but with a kick. Its hip, loud and has its own chic.
The food is Austrian/Hungarian and quite good. I had the chestnut soup, which was very good and the beef goulash with spaetzle... excellent. For desert I ordered an apple strudel mit Schlag. My friend had a Wiener Schnitzel, which he liked as well. This place can be highly recommended for very decent Austrian/Hungarian food, but expect a high sound level!

Dinner was a bit of a disappointment. A friend's recommendation caused us to try Blaue Gans and the food was only OK. Having to chase down the waitress to get another round of drinks did not add to the experience.
