What a Grace!

Lamb part one: fillet, jerusalem artichoke, salad and tamarind

In 2016 Oliver Lucas, former sous-chef of Heinz Reitbauer (Steirereck), opened his own restaurant together with his wife Petra. The restaurant named Grace offers casual fine dining with an english twist, citing Mr. Luca’s origins.

Grace is located in the fourth district, near Vienna’s city center. It offers one very well priced menu from four to eigth courses – with the latter you literally eat every dish of the menu, which is highly recommended.

All the dishes showed excellent product quality and well preparation. They were not overloaded with components but clearly arranged around a main ingredient which made them very approachable and easy to enjoy without being simple. The atmosphere was familial and chatty. So I recommend: Go in Grace!
