Cafe Sabarsky

The family week continued after Upland with a stop at the Arlo Rooftop for a bottle of rose and then onto an itzakya dinner at Sake Bar Hagi before the Book of Mormon.  Monday we decided to uptown to my fathers favorite place in the city for lunch Cafe Sabarsky.  This gorgeous restaurant is styled after the great Viennese Cafes from the turn of the century.  In addition to hearty platters of Bavarian Sausage and Wiener Schnitzel, Sabaraky is the perfect spot to indulge in some wonderful desserts.

My father and I always get the same thing the beautiful Klimttorte, a chocolate and hazelnut layer cake studded with smooth chocolate ganache and a shiny gold leaf.  It's a rich, elegant dessert that pairs perfectly with one of their strong Viennese coffees.

My Mom always gets the classic Apple Strudel while my brother tried out the Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte, a light chocolate cake with whipped cream and cherries.  I honestly don't think there's any dessert here that I wouldn't like.

After Sabarsky we head across the street to The Met just in time for some eclipse watching and then it was back into Midtown for Billy Joel at The Garden.  Not a bad way to kick off the week.

Sake Bar Hagi is so much fun- one of the best Times Square spots going. Thanks Tyrockwood it was a great family visit. I'm glad they always ask to go to Sabarsky; it's such a lovely place.
