Vienna meets France: Duspara Restaurant & Bistro
"A little French, a little Viennese. Whatever you like." This quotation describes the restaurant of Danijel Duspara to the point. The former gourmet chef from Steirereck has been cooking in Vienna-Margareten since 2015. In the cosy restaurant he offers his guests daily changing lunch menus for little money. Always at the highest level, yet never overblown. But in the evening he likes to step it up a bit. Would you like a taste? How about duck liver parfait with spicy quinces and fluffy brioche or smoked trout ribs with fruity fennel salad?
