I'm a New Yorker who's been living in Vienna for the past 18 years - after studying singing I became a manager of opera singers, and work with opera houses all over Europe and know all about the cultural scene in Vienna and Europe and the crazy business of opera. My amazing friend Nabiel is many things - he will cook Viennese delicacies for you and teach you Austrian cooking hacks (he is already teaching cooking classes in Vienna, and has extremely high ratings on Trip Advisor. He's one of the most fun people on the planet, knowledgeable about almost everything, and a joy to be around. He grew up baking. One of our favourite places in Vienna is Miznon, another Figlmüller, but I swear Nabiel's schnitzel is even better.... :-)
Love to explore markets in Vienna, foodie, and opera singer manager by day, building up careers of big talents. Creator of sonostream.tv, a platform for classical music and opera livestreams and VOD programs.
What an amazing evening! Samantha was a wonderful host and Nabiel was engaging, fun and a fabulous cook. It truly felt like “home” with delicious food and great conversation. We all enjoyed participating in preparation of the schinitzel and strudel - it was a highlight of the evening. If we have another opportunity, we would absolutely book again with Samantha and Nabiel!
