Yes, but first I have to wait to find a parking spot. All right. Come in. We are here at the heart of Ludwig & Adele in our beautiful, small kitchen. The Künstlerhaus is a place that exists for about 150 years. It is a unique place because we have the chance to combine exhibition spaces, a cinema and gastronomy under one roof. We didn't know Ludwig Linser before he learned his craft at the five star hotel, Hotel Central in Tirol. Friends connected us with him and we liked him. And we had too little time to look for someone else. You only season the meat with salt and pepper and sear it briefly. As we can see, the kitchen has limited space. Nevertheless, we are cooking all our catering from this location. So Ludwig and his team are pretty busy. Basically we only use regional ingredients. We are located in the rather posh first district, but we offer affordable food with a high quality standard. Here we have a tranche of salmon belly. Salmon itself is a very fatty fish, but this is the fattiest you can get. We serve it with sesame, black pepper, lime and carrots. This is a braised beef cheek and pickled mustard seeds. Here comes the boss and steals away the food! We have a very balanced lunch menu. Dinner is rather regional and traditional in contrast to our lunch menu, where we constantly try to reinvent ourselves. I invited two friends to hang out with me at the bar. Rainer moved to Vienna with me back in the day. It's always nice when we find the time to hang out and party a bit. With Mathias, I founded Tonstube, our first place. This was pretty hard work, and we kind of spent the last three years together. Have you ever been to Porgy & Bess since we took over? Yes, sure, at the opening party. The club is working. Is it? I believe that, it's a pretty nice place. Yes, it's a hotspot where there's something going on every day. Is it full every day? It's not always completely packed, but there is no evening where no one is there. Okay. The owner likes to interpret jazz on a wider scale. That's what I like. For Christoph Huber, it's the greatest thing to discover a band. That's more important for him. Top priority is that the gin and tonic is cold. That's what we're going to check now! Porgy & Bess is a well known jazz club in Europa and a Viennese legend. Everything cool? I am here with two friends and would like to order some food. Can you prepare some entrees and some main dishes? Our cook at Porgy created some nice little snacks for us, like pralines made of lamb with cranberries, risotto with pork belly and rosemary, black bread toast with smoked meat or spinach dumplings made with grey cheese and sage butter. At Porgy & Bess we practice a similar way of cooking as in our home base Ludwig & Adele. Still, we focus a bit more on the fact that Porgy & Bess is a nightclub with small tables. That's why we try to perfect the concept of food in the glass. Later we went from Porgy and Bess to the sausage place next to Albertina. If you plan a night out in Vienna, it's kind of essential to stop by at a sausage place to have a sausage, a beer, and a Jägermeister. I think it's time to head over the Bitzinger for a quick sausage and a beer. Aren't you hungry? Oh yeah, I can have a dessert. Porgy & Bess is a good club. Did you like the food? No, it sucked. That's the reason we bring you along. That's Hotel Sacher. Did anyone of you have a cake there? Yes, the coffee is about €4.50 and the Sacher cake is dust dry. Not good? Hm, It's ok. Who did you go there with? With my mom. Your mother? The view is pretty special here. The opera house. I will have a Eitrige (cheese kransky). I'll have a cheese kransky and three small beers. Do you like gherkins or peppers on the side? I take one gherkin. Just drop it on top. Yes! That's just superb! Look, how they are standing in line. Let's drink to Austria taking part in the next worldcup. We can't drink to that in one go. Do you want me to puke? Those Jägermeisters were not the normal size. They were double! They did their part in making me pretty drunk. What are you laughing at? Let's go. Now we are heading to Tonstube. That is our baby so to speak. Mathias and me opened this place while studying and after having had a few drinks too many. We looked at this place and it was really worn down, an old pizza place. We thought: whatever, we are doing this. We asked all our friends for help and renovated the place. That's the T- that's my hood! We went back to our place to prepare a little z'Nuner. A z'Nuner is a traditional small cold snack. The ideal thing on a night out so you can drink a little more. We are here at the drink manufactory of Ludwig und Adele at the Tonstube Wien. This is kind of our little brewery. 3 to 4 times a week we prepare Tonic Water, Ludwigs Lemonade, Adeles Orange, and our homemade Kaluko ice tea. He's the man behind it. I would say, I get the cheese. My dad Bruno, has sent me some cheese. It's made by my dad, in the Bregenzerwald area. It is pure gold in Vienna. My father sends me a 30 kg pack of cheese every 3 weeks sometimes even weekly. This is a 12-month-old mountain cheese, ripened and produced in Bregenzerwald. I will serve a 10 month old cheese this evening 'cause it is a bit harder in its texture, not so crumbly and intense in taste. Normally you always serve the rind with a good cheese. But we have a few drunk people out there and we don't want them to eat the rind. We also have homemade chili chutney and homemade fig mustard and some apples. That's the traditional way to eat in Vorarlberg. Do I also get a beer? I am the only one working here! We also get our beer from home cause we like that one best.
