THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Mozart's Restaurant Review

: For a town settled by Germans, it’s surprising how little decent German food is offered in Columbus. But newcomer Mozart’s, which is fundamentally an Austrian-style pastry shop, has an Austrian chef who’s a genius with schnitzels of both the veal and pork persuasion. His thick Hungarian goulash is no slouch, either---meaty, hearty with potatoes, full-flavored. Good as the Austro-German foods may be, you go here planning your dessert first from among the dozens of temptations, not the least of which are the various plunder, the authentic version of what our Danish pastry feebly imitates: thin, succulently buttery layers of flaky pastry with varied fillings (cheese, walnuts, poppy seed) and sweet glazes on top. They’re fantastic with the excellent espresso or tea they serve here---Mozart’s is one of the too-few places that offers tea made from loose teas, not just bags. Of the two locations, the swankest-looking is in the brand-new Easton Town Center; but the original, with its marble tables, has a European pastry shop atmosphere that’s truly fitting.
