As a passionate test eater, I am probably not the only one who is looking forward to the opening of the restaurant! When, on Wednesday 19 May 2021, the glasses are once again polished on the laid tables and the dusty doors of the restaurants are allowed to unlock again, we will all have no less than 197 days of waiting behind us.
197 days without a Backhenderl in the Herzl Weinstube, without a glass of beer in the Gösser Bräu and without a Frankowitsch roll with obligatory Prosecco in the legendary shop in Stempfergasse.
197 days since 3 November 2020 also mean 28 weekends without vibes and drinks in the EL1 Bar or the KatzeKatze Bar.
Now it’s finally starting up again, so I’m going to give you a taste of what’s in store for you and tell you my personal three pre-pleasures. In addition, I took a look at the ticket for gastronomic pleasure.
Where can you see spring as well as on the Schlossberg? From here you have a view of the whole city – and you can also enjoy a cosy brunch.
For me, the best fish soup from here to Texas is definitely at el Pescador. The creamy soup exudes a light tomato aroma and serves up ingredients such as mussels, fish pieces and seafood. And the garden promises a little holiday – right in the centre of Graz!
The two gastronomic experts Anna Winter and Anita Kurz serve nothing boring in the hip Joanneums district. Imaginative yet down-to-earth dishes dominate the menu. The beef tartare, however, is classic (lucky for me) and is served with onion rings, egg and toast. That’s how it should be!
So that we can now enjoy all these delicacies, a little preparation is needed. Not on, but necessary – a COVID-19 test. I booked the appointment from the comfort of my home on my smartphone within a few minutes.
You can find detailed instructions and the links to register here.
So that was the anticipation for the gastro-opening, next time I’ll take you to the open restaurants and eateries in Graz city centre!
See you soon and all the best, Manuela from Testesser
