RESTAURANT GRAND FERDINAND
What happens when tradition is not conceived in retrospect but instead is celebrated while looking forward can be experienced at the Grand Ferdinand Restaurant, which opened on 2 October 2015. In its own restaurant, the new hotel on Vienna’s Schubertring treats its guests to traditional Austrian dishes including Kaisersuppe (‘emperor’s soup’), boiled fillet of beef and veal shanks Maria Theresa style. The interior design surprises with an opulent mix of styles: generosity and simple elegance are countered with a cosy traditional Vienna ambience including chandeliers and burgundy-red leather benches. With distinct style and comfort, Thonet’s 55 bentwood chairs 215 R and 90 models no. 233 fit in with this ensemble – and take guests on a journey into Vienna’s most influential epochs.
