Other motives than eating will bring you to Zweitbester. With its bare and ultra-modern interior, it may simply seem like a new posh place to show your face, but its wild side shows itself with only a few steps towards the bathroom. Don’t be surprised to see Moog keyboards, Pong video game consoles and an artsy crowd gathering in the bathroom, where regular “Klo Sessions” feature live artist performances straight from within the restaurant’s washroom.
Yet even when you do sit down for a meal here, the eccentricity bubbles over in the form of “Großmutter kocht”, featuring the owners’ grandmothers preparing all their secret recipes from goulash to schnitzel. There’s also “Austria’s Next Top Knödel”, entailing a week-long event dedicated to the eponymous potato dumpling. Just don’t forget that, despite the distractions, the menu features daily-changing offerings of soups, stews, puree’s and ragouts for all those moments when you can remind yourself to sit down and have a meal.
