TIAN Restaurant Wien
Though the eight-course vegetarian dinner at TIAN will set you back a fair amount of money, the restaurant’s popularity and, of course, its Michelin star shows that it’s well worth the cost. “[The chef] does things to your food that you would never imagine, like putting celeriac into the oven for hours, squeezing all the liquid out of it and then serving you this essence as soup with some other ingredients,” says LIA. A recent dinner menu at the vegetarian restaurant featured purple broccoli with amaranth and kefir, truffle pasta, and an apple, caramel and tonka bean dessert, and you can expect equally inventive options throughout the year. In addition to a wine pairing, the restaurant offers a non-alcoholic pairing, featuring drinks such as ‘carrot shrub’ and ‘beet water’.
