SAVE THE SCHNITZEL


Serial London restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King are hopelessly in love with the smells and flavors of Mitteleuropa. Their restaurant, the Wolseley, on Piccadilly, is essentially an elegant beer hall with food while the Delaunay, not far from Covent Garden, is a gastronomic ode to old Vienna, offering a variety of sausages, borscht, chopped liver, schnitzel dishes and possibly the most delectable banana splits in town.

They’ve now one-upped themselves with Fischer’s, a smaller and lower-key take on their earlier efforts, a neighborhood restaurant and café that recalls the days of the Kaiser.

Open all day, seven days a week, the restaurant in Marylebone village — not far from Selfridges — serves up dishes like pickled or smoked herring; beetroot and goat’s curd salad; lamb goulash, and ice cream medleys with names like Berggasse — a mix of hazelnut, almond and pistachio, whipped cream and butterscotch sauce.

There are, of course, schnitzels galore as well as six different types of sausage.

Cozy and clubby, guests can also duck inside for a bit of gingerbread or sachertorte and coffee while they relax and read the paper — no easy task in London.
