The ambience of Grosz is best described as a mixture between a Vienna café of the Art Nouveau era and a French Brasserie. Accessoires with patina like old mirrors and picture frames give a special charme to this place.
Culinarily, there are various focal points. One of them is classic French cuisine like a bouillabaisse available in three variations, the most expensive one of them being with lobster and stone crabs. Generally, seafood dishes are held in very high esteem at the Grosz.
Another fairly important part of the menu are the steaks, among others with a Spanish entrecôte and Xata Roxa fillet, US prime beed, Elbe beef and "dry age" beef from Nebraska.
If you have to make do with a smaller budget, try their breakfast variations with fresh croissants from the in-house bakery Patisserie L'Oui or the afternoon tea with English sandwiches and delicious filled cream puffs called "choux", true to style presented on an etagere of three level. They come with a ganache, a kind of hot chocolate made of Valrhona chocolate, creme fraiche and topped up with warm milk - delivious!
The Grosz is named after the famous painter George Grosz, who lived in the neighbourhood of Savignyplatz in the 1920s. You can relive this era when entering the renovated and listed Cumberland House, since the place was the point of call for the haute volée of the society in the 1920s.
