4 of 5 stars (very good, upscale dining).

(see explanation of ratings below)

In the evening, entrées are priced at more than $30, so this qualifies as fine dining. However, at lunch, we had a dish that included a serving of butter in an individual-sized packet (which smacks of casual dining, for sure!).

Delightful space to dine! Sibella (Hostess/owner) is German and quite lovely. Chef is Austrian.

Beautiful presentations of all dishes (except for the butter as noted above).

Only disappointment was the sachertorte: we all felt it was too dry.

Lunch: $40-$45 per person, gratuity excluded (lots of wine).

Would absolutely return to try dinner there!

About my ratings:

Only high-priced dining establishments can garner five stars. Until menuism realizes that a fast food joint cannot possibly be ranked equally with a $100 per person place, I need to draw the line somewhere. If we were only talking about the quality and presentation of the food, it would be a different story. But, as we know, menuism’s rankings take into account the entire dining experience.

Therefore, I divide restaurants into three categories (and I wish menuism would do the same):

1) fast food and “fast-casual”, low-priced (no table service).

2) casual, mid-priced dining (table service, average entrée price: $10-$20).

3) fine, high-priced dining (linen napkins, no plastic cups, no TV’s in dining room, average entrée priced at more than $20, can vary depending on the city).

High-priced dining can earn a max of five stars. Mid-priced dining can earn a max of four stars. Fast food can earn a max of three stars.

Best restaurant in the area

This is an exceptional restaurant with fine European food. The hostess/owner, Sibilla Dengs, is delightful and goes out of her way to make your dining experience exceptional. Chef Bernard is extremely creative as to presentation and food preparation. The menu is limited and features four and five course meals, but items may be order a la carte. The restaurant also features art of local artists. The food here compares very favorable with the best of big city restaurants.

Artic Char poached in olive oil, beet-root jelly, fresh spinach & citrus foam

The fish was perfectly prepared. The beet-root jelly and citrus foam added a special touch.

Art, coffee and desserts...can't ask for much more!

Art Cafe 26 is a nice spot to enjoy artwork and a good cup of coffee. The owner is German, so the food is very good! The cafe is very comfortable and has a pleasant atmosphere. Try Art Cafe 26 for lunch or dessert while in New Town.
