Das Wiener Schnitzel is a boneless cutlet, pan-fried in a coat of bread crumbs, and any Milanese will tell you that it originated in Milan and was introduced to Vienna by the Austrian soldiers occupying the Lombardian town. So really it's a Piccata Milanese

Der Wiener Schnitzel is the name of a hot dog chain in the U.S.

While any Viennese will tell you that a Wiener really is a Frankfurter.

"Wienern" means to polish mostly furniture.
