Manhattan - Cafe Kristall

Cafe Kristall is a creation of Kurt Gutenbrunner & Francis Reynard - an elegant Austrian panorama of fine Austrian cuisine and beverages in SoHo. The main café caters to the public from lunch until the early evening providing a relaxing escape from the busy streets & luxury boutiques of SoHo, while the downstairs is designated for special events and private dinners in an artistic milieu. In Café Kristall - adjacent to the Swarovski Crystallized store - one is surrounded by beautiful chandeliers, art, textures, and original designs from Austria’s finest artisans.


After years of friendship, dating back to their time spent working together in Munich, Kurt Gutenbrunner and Francis Reynard had always hoped to find an opportunity to work together again. Café Kristall presented itself as the perfect place for a collaboration. Chef Kurt and Chef Francis have worked closely together to make Café Kristall into a beautiful space where people can meet and enjoy dishes made from the highest quality, locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, as well as wine, coffee, and cakes.  


The dining room features an assortment of one-of-a-kind Swarovski light pieces and works of art by Hermann Nitsch, Albert Oehlen and Alejandro Garmendia.  Our private dining room is available for lunch and dinner events as well as cocktail receptions.
