Square Meal Review of Fischer's ?

Following on from The Wolseley et al, Fischer’s continues Christopher Corbin and Jeremy King’s long-running love affair with Viennese café society – and it certainly looks the Austro-Hungarian part, with a rich brown-and-black palette applied to the leather banquettes, tightly packed bentwood chairs and shiny table tops. The attention to detail is faultless, although one is unlikely to encounter the same carefree atmosphere in buttoned-up Vienna. Messrs Corbin and King have always been keen on sociable, feel-good food – and Fischer’s proves the point with pleasing starters such as white asparagus with Black Forest ham. To follow, our juicy, lightly battered Wiener schnitzel would have been better without a stridently flavoured ligonberry compote, while devilled veal sweetbreads with tartare sauce were spot on. After that, sugary carb-fest puds prove why patisserie is Austria’s gift to the food world. Service is slick, if not exactly warm, but time-pressed diners will appreciate the well-oiled efficiency of the whole set-up.

  1. It is hard to find Austrian Food in London but Fischer’s opened recently to fill the void. It is owned by the same team that owns The Wollsley (http://www.thewolseley.com/) and The Delaunay(http://www.thedelaunay.com/). When I walked in I could see traces of the restaurant being owned by the same group as it carries some of the traditional decor. What was missing was the buzz from the Wolesley and the good people watching. The restaurant felt a bit old school. I think Austrian food is something our parents love, hence the reason we were there – my dad was visiting down and as a good Hungarian, he loves Austrian food as well...

  1. I am in a quandary over the Austrian theme. Austria, for all its culture is not a place where I feel entirely at home, birthplace of Hitler, rise of modern anti-Semitism and all that and it put me in mind of a book I’ve heard of but not read. It’s called  “Is it good for the Jews”? In searching for […]

    Ultra Vie :: Fischer'€™s | Vienna Comes To Marylebone

    If you thought that Viennese cuisine was being under-served in London then think again, as Chris Corbin and Jeremy King bring an element of early twentieth century Vienna to the streets of Marylebone in the launch of their newest venture Fischer’s.

    These two men are the brilliant minds behind Corbin & King Restaurants who have owned and managed some of London’s most revered and successful restaurants, such as The Wolseley and The Delauney. They have really honed their recipe for success and are transferring their knowledge into this current project, while also adding extra strings to their bow with the title of hoteliers as they open Beaumont in Mayfair. When it comes to coffee houses and cafés, Austria knows how to maximise the social occasion like no other and it has become part of their tradition, if not their identity...

    The Cutlery Chronicles :: fischer's

    So, most of us have an idea of what a schnitzel is - boneless tenderised and breaded meat - and the the part of Europe the term is associated with (mittel-Europe, that is Germany, Austria and the surroundings). But I suspect that’s where a lot of our knowledge of this cuisine ends. Should you have the urge to delve deeper into Viennese café culture and what a menu in one would offer, Fischer’s in Marylebone is a good place to start.

    If you’ve wandered into a Jeremy King and Chris Corbin venture before (The Wolseley, The Delaunay, Brasserie Zedel), you’ll instantly recognise the space as one of theirs; they are masters at baroque beauty, early twentieth-century glamour, bustling European-style all-day brasseries, panelled walls and big clocks. The menu partially reflects those in The Delaunay and The Wolseley - the presence of schnitzel, wursts, wieners, ice cream coupes and sachertorte are ubiquitous...
