The Donnersmarkt restaurant at ALMANAC Palais Vienna offers its guests a unique “plant-forward” concept, inspired by the beauty of the Austrian Alps and Vienna’s weekly markets. With fresh, regional and seasonal cuisine that focuses on plant-based dishes with an alpine flair, the restaurant is bringing new momentum to Vienna’s dining scene.
Creative menu that brings Vienna to life
Chef Andres Mahl has developed a lovingly crafted menu that not only puts guests close to the ingredients, but also introduces them to the culinary delights of Vienna and Austria. Examples of refined dishes are the Viennese primal carrot with honey and thyme or the red catfish ceviche.
Share, Connect and Enjoy
At the center of the restaurant is a long, inviting table that represents the basic idea of Donnersmarkt: sharing. Here guests can share good food, stories, experiences and impressions while interacting and connecting with other guests and Viennese locals to become a part of the city themselves.
Donnersmarkt Bar: refreshing drinks and local specialties
The Donnersmarkt Bar offers refreshing drinks, local juices and signature cocktails like the “Almanac Martini” with vodka, green apple liqueur, orange liqueur and Chinese Five Spice Bitters. Sweet and savory snacks satisfy hunger and whet the appetite for the restaurant’s delicious dishes. At the end of an eventful day in Vienna, the bar is the perfect place for a last glass of Austrian wine.
An enjoyable start to the day
Guests who want to enjoy the unmistakable scent of Viennese coffeehouse culture in the morning can start their day in the Donnersmarkt restaurant with a freshly prepared à la carte breakfast and coffee from the in-house “Elias Coffee Shop”. Here, international egg dishes like the “Shakshuka Vienna Style” are combined with sustainable ingredients from the region and sweet breakfast treats.
Traditional Austrian delicacies
A special highlight is the traditional Austrian semolina cook with berry confit and organic honey according to the recipe of chef Andreas Mahl’s grandmother. This delicious dish brings back childhood memories and is a personal favorite of the chef.
