Bodo's Schloss
2a Kensington High Street, W8 4RE
London
United Kingdom

Bodo's Schloss is a restaurant, bar and a club on High Street Kensington right next to the Royal Garden Hotel. I first read about it a few months ago as one of the newspapers was talking about a new trend in London, where après-ski type of bars/restaurants were opening in the centre of London that belonged more in Verbier, Courchevel or another ski resort. Bodo's Schloss is this type of restaurant, the inside looks like a ski chalet, the waitresses are dressed in lederhosen, typical German/ Austrian outfit, and they serve Austrian food and just like in après-ski bars in the Alps you can drink drinks from a ski slope, a ski boot and other interesting things. I had to pick a place for dinner to go with my 3 beautiful girl friends and I thought this would be fun, especially as all my young and party loving colleagues love this place and say this is great fun.

The Delaunay

London

I had been to The Delaunay in January last year when it first opened and absolutely loved it, and now I came for the second time for brunch. The Delaunay is a sister restaurant of the Wolseley, and calls itself a “Grand European Café, Restaurant” so it has that amazing aura when you enter the restaurant, with high ceilings, beautiful slightly old feel furniture, very nicely dressed staff. They also have super cool heavy silver cutlery, the nice champagne glasses from the 1950s and old clock so it feels like you could be in Vienna in the middle of the last century. The Delaunay is located on the Strand and serves Austrian/ Eastern European food and last time I came here last January I had borsch (traditional beetroot soup from Russia/ Eastern Europe) which I liked and remember being vegetarian (usually it has meat in it) as well as Chicken Kiev, and I had a great meal.

Le Ciel
Kärntner Ring 9 1010
Vienna
Austria

Le Ciel is a restaurant located on the top  (7th) floor in Grand Hotel Wien in Austria and serves French food with Austrian accents. The terrace on the top floor as well as the whole interior of the restaurant are very beautiful and have that amazing, old, beginning of the last century feel with beautifully presented art deco furniture. I ended up in Le Ciel having dinner because of my work and as it was quite a few of us so we had a set menu. First arrived the amuse bouche followed by the starter of “barilotto di bufala cheese with avocado, green santolina, romaine lettuce and red onions”, and the funny thing here is that part of the name of the dish is in Italian, when they say they are a French/ Austrian restaurant, I just found this quite funny. Nevertheless the starter was superb, I really enjoyed it. Next followed the whitefish in asparagus coat with lavender-asparagus vinaigrette.
