About this place
Café Sabarsky, which bears the name of Neue Galerie New York’s co-founder Serge Sabarsky, draws its inspiration from the great Viennese cafés that served as important centers of intellectual and artistic life at the turn of the century. A tribute to Vienna’s traditional coffee houses, Café Sabarsky emulates the old gathering centers for Austrian intellectuals and artists. Tucked inside the Neue Galerie, it is outfitted with period objects, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann, furniture by Adolf Loos, and banquettes that are upholstered with a 1912 Otto Wagner fabric. A Bösendorfer grand piano graces one corner of the Café, and is used for all cabaret, chamber, and classical music performances at the museum. Best of all, the Viennese specialties here are as delicious as they are authentic. Chef Kurt Gutenbrunner has done a magnificent job in making Café Sabarsky a favorite spot for New Yorkers and a proud upholder of the Viennese café tradition, and an inseparable part of Neue Galerie.
Tips from locals
Perfect place to grab a delicious treat and a drink in between or after a museum visit uptown!
A little Viennese café experience in NYC. Worth a trip even if you don't visit the Neue Galerie (which is worth visiting). Note if just eating you can skip the link for the gallery.
Decadent, old world decor in an opulent mansion, turned museum will transport you to another era. The food is gorgeous. The best hot chocolate in NYC. The best Austrian pastries and desserts (get anything, get it with whipped cream.) It is expensive, but it is memorable and good.
WOW. Attached to the Neue Galerie it's definitely a hidden gem. The hot chocolate, the goulash, the spatzle, you literally cannot go wrong. Not cheap, but worth it every time!
