Restaurant Vienna · Spirits Soar at 3,650 m (11,975 ft) above sea level!

Altitude can be rather tricky so it´s best to take it easy upon arrival. Experts give sage advice of eating and drinking little for the first few days. The idea is not to tax your system as you adjust to less oxygen in every breath you take.

And in keeping with this sound approach I called to make reservations for early supper 7pm, corner table, Restaurant Vienna.

We began with a twist on the classic Dry Martini. An Anchotini is achieved with addition of rolled anchovies to the renowned recipe. The anchovies marinade in the cocktail then are used to augment an already superb Caesar Salad of romaine lettuce and croutons dressed with parmesan cheese, lemon juice, olive oil, egg, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and freshly ground black pepper... followed by a Consommé, a type of clear soup in this case flavoured with Spanish Sherry. A dessert of Fresh Strawberries adorned with Chocolate Mousse topped things off beautifully.

Add unequaled service, beautiful surroundings and a pianist playing nicely in the corner and your adjustment to altitude won´t include loss of appetite, weakness or lightheadedness. Really, there´s nothing better than having your spirits soar at Restaurant Vienna!
