Cafe Sabarsky Cabaret Night?
I don't have the highest opinion, in general, of the combined food/entertainment bit, but I do love the Neue Gallerie, Cafe Sabarsky, and cabaret. I'm thinking of getting tickets for a Cabaret night at Cafe Sabarsky for a friends bday, but am curious if the prix-fixe that precedes the show is worth it.
Would it be better to dine at Wallse and see a show elsewhere? I know the space will make up for a little lack in cuisine, but I'm not overly eager to take a good friend out for a birthday dinner if it means limp salad and sad goulash.
I've only had lunches there, but I think you'll be pleasantly surprised - nothing sad or limp about the food!
The food is actually pretty good for the cabaret evenings. When I went, I had sublime pumpkin soup (best part of the meal!), nice enough cod with lentils and very buttery mashed potatoes, and mango torte with raspberry sorbet. I should have had the chocolate and hazelnut cake. My friend had a mixed salad and the vegetarian spaetzle.
And even though the wine is not included in the prix fixe cost, you have some really fine choices to supplement your meal. The waitstaff is very knowledgeable and can recommend something nice.
