Fine Dining in Vienna: Tian Restaurant

Fine Dining in Vienna: Tian Restaurant


TIAN has truly lifted fine dining to a whole new level thanks to its visionary chef Paul Ivić, and founder Christian Halper.  Respecting natural cycles, TIAN pays attention to preferably organic products, created in a fair way. The seasonal ingredients are predominantly supplied by regional partners, that understand and adhere to their high standards of quality concerning fresh food. The name TIAN is not a coincidence by the way. It is the Chinese word for “heaven”, as well as a French vegetarian stew.  With TIAN they have both fulfilled a longstanding dream: vegetarian food prepared in a way that will have your taste buds tingling while indulging all your senses. The experience was one of our fullest and most special so far: incredible flavours, exceptional staff, phenomenal juice pairing. Otherwise it's hard to describe the feeling, you must try it. Let food enriches our lives! Read on to get inspired, and then go and visit TIAN.


Women's Day Interview: The Beach People

Byron Bay

We wanted to seize International Women's Day with a very special story this is year. In search of beautiful, strong women we came across the two superwomen behind The Beach People. The Beach People was founded in the summer of 2013 by sisters Emma Henderson and Victoria Beattie in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales Australia. Inspired by their family, friends and seaside lifestyle, with their passion for creating beautiful and iconic products, their first collection of round towels sold out in weeks. A few short years later, they are building a globally admired brand of seaside luxe essentials for everyone, everywhere to enhance one’s living spaces and life experiences from the beach to home. Emma and Victoria both are surrounded by men who think women are strong, capable and equal. We sat down with Emma for a quick interview so we can admire even more what they do as women, sisters, and mothers.

Thanks to our recent visits and welcoming atmosphere, Vienna has started to feel a lot like home. When there’s no GPS needed to get around our favourite neighbourhoods, the Wi-Fi connects instantly in certain coffee shops or you know the menu by heart at Naschmarkt’s greatest gems, each visit feels a lot like homecoming – quite rightfully. This feeling’s just got spoiled by Ruby Hotels’ one-off hospitality. We’ve stayed at Ruby Marie the other week, which is situated right in Vienna’s 7th district at the corner of Mariahilfer Straße, 10 mins walk from Museums Quartier. Ruby Hotels approach to hospitality is so-called ‘lean luxury’, which is all about having a lean organizational structure and concentrating on the essentials. Minimalism, if you like. Ruby strives to create a contemporary, design-oriented yet affordable accommodation for the modern travellers.
