In a former officers’ casino, surrounded by a picturesque little park, non-military persons can dine in style and lose themselves in the wine labyrinth.
Join the Food safari led by Fritz Toesch in Burgenland, Austria.
Patron Fritz Tösch boasts a highly characteristic moustache and a highly characteristic pizzeria on the other side of the street, called Da Capo, which in itself would permit him to be passed off as an officer in the historic Austro-Hungarian military forces. Yet Tösch’s utterly peaceful mission lies elsewhere, namely, to offer a fine setting for outstanding Burgenland products ranging from regional beef known as Seewinkler Greys
, to fish from Lake Neusiedl
to local wines. His “stage” comprises ancient, beautifully renovated and adapted rooms, a cozy bar and a sun room. The “actors” are the beautifully fashioned, stimulating compositions
which arrive on your plate, compliments of chef Sascha Huber, who worked at the Steirereck in Vienna and has been refining his own home terrain in culinary ways ever since. The host is an impassioned wine fan
, hardly a secret among those who frequent the restaurant. About 400 varieties adorn his wine list, which renders it highly practical that he also runs a comfortable bed & breakfast
right next door. That is also where his own cooking school has its facilities. In the context of the so-called “Nyikospark Safari,” the best agricultural producers of the Burgenland showcase and deploy their wares before your eyes.Country Inn at Nyikospark
