Chris Corbin and Jeremy King’s newest venture, Fischer’s, a Viennese café in Marylebone, is now open. The High Street site was once home to an ambitious Italian, Cotidie, and before that, Café Luc – both establishments that seemed to fail, in part, because they got their pricing wrong.
So when the Wolseley-et-al duo acquired the premises, they debated for some time as to what kind of restaurant they should launch, before finally deciding on an informal neighbourhood-style café and Konditorei, as befits a ‘village’.
The all-day dining establishment offers cured fish, Schnitzels, sausages and sandwiches, as well as Strudels and ice-cream coupes and a range of coffees. For breakfast there’s Gröstl (bacon with fried potatoes and eggs), while mains include lamb goulash and Tafelspitz (braised beef with horseradish and apple). The wine list is largely mittel-European with Austrian, German, Alsace and Hungarian wines, many available by the glass.
Fischer’s opened for reservations on 4 June. For more information and bookings visit their website.
