The Richterā€™s Fine Dining Restaurant in Stuttgart with a great philosophy and host

On the homepage of the Richterā€™s Fine Dining restaurant you can read the following:

ā€œWe have a deep appreciation for every product we work with. We maintain trust-based relationships with our partners and vendors. Most of them are successful family-operated businesses steeped in years of tradition. Their products make very important contributions to the fine quality Richterā€™s serves on every plate. The guest must be able to experience our passion and enthusiasm for gourmet food with every sense. Whatā€™s more: Our servings are generous and youā€™ll never leave hungry.ā€

Well what we can say on that? We gave Yesterday their six course DĆ©gustation Menu a try and we were not at disappointed. Like you can read on Wikipedia: ā€œa DĆ©gustation menu is the careful, appreciative tasting of various food, focusing on the gustatory system, the senses, high culinary art and good company. DĆ©gustation menus are more likely to involve sampling small portions of all of a chef’s signature dishes in one sitting.ā€ All of that we found in the menu Yesterday and it perfectly represented the Richterā€™s Fine Dining philosophy like noted on their homepage.

So RenĆ© Richter who runs the restaurant, a trained as a professional restaurateur and chef promissed not too much at all! And like mentioned on his homepage: ā€œHowever, being a host is my greatest passion ā€“ at home as well as in the restaurant. I want my guests to feel right at home and well taken care of when they spend time with me as their host. If theyā€™re not happy, Iā€™m not happy.ā€

So Mr. Richter you can be very happy, because we were very happy Yesterday and we will be back for sure šŸ˜‰

Fine-Dining.Blog @ the MAERZ restaurant in Bietigheim-Bissingen

The MAERZ restaurant its signature is earthiness & creativity

Earthiness & creativity is the philosophy and the topic of the Michelin star awarded restaurant MAERZ in Bietigheim-Bissingen close to Stuttgart. The restaurant from Benjamin Maerz – the kitchen chef – and Christian Maerz – the restaurant manager & sommelier – has lots of South German family tradition. Before the two brothers took over hotel and restaurant, it was operated from their parents. Then after their father passed away unexpected and much too early, the two brother took over the hotel and restaurant from their mother in 2013. Both invested a lot into the hotel, they invested lots of money, time and lifeblood. I was guest in the restaurant also in the old times when it still was operated from the parents and now came back to a fine dining dinner!

Yes right a fine dining dinner! The two brothers were just in their mid twenties when they took over the hotel and restaurant from their mother and then changed a lot, but not all! They still kept the spirit of the restaurant as I knew it from the past, on the one side but on the other side also a lot changed – New decoration, new kitchen, new food – new creativity but still both brothers are very down to earth. Wich is not normal when your new restaurant is already awarded with one Michelin and your age is just in the mid twenties!

But yes definitely the fine dining evening at the MAERZ restaurant from Benjamin Maerz and Christian Maerz was for sure simply a fine dining moment for share! That is why we are more than happy to put this article into our Fine Dining Blog and share it here with you.Ā 

Of course we are also very happy to have such a nice, new and contemporary Michelin awarded restaurant just in our neighborhood and we can really confirm the MAERZ restaurant in Bietigheim-Bissingen is earthiness & creativity at its best! Great work Benjamin and Christian and we will be back! šŸ˜‰

When visiting Reims the city of Champaign then there is a great opportunity to combine the visit of a great Champaign cellar with a breathtaking three Michelin starred restaurant. Normally we describe our visits with a detailed description, but sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. Therefore here the pictures of the beautiful Champaign City Reims:

The next pictures are showing the breathtaking cellars of Ruinart. Totally there are around 8km of Runiart cellars below Reims. The callers it selves, the tour and of course the Champaign tasting just “Oui Oui Oui” breathtaking šŸ˜‰

And then the in the end of a beautiful day in Reims “la grande finale” in the three Michelin starred fine dining restaurant L’Assiette Champenoise. Well we could write so so so many things about that perfect restaurant, about this magician Chef Arnaud Lallement who earned with his kitchen three Michelin stars, about his perfectly orchestrated service team, about the beautiful decorated rooms in this restaurant – Yes yes yes we could write so much but like noted above sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, therefore just have a look:

So yes we will be back in Reims, in the Runiart cellars and at the L’Assiette Champenoise restaurant – one day in exactly in that sequence šŸ˜‰

Train Stadion and fine-dining restaurant 5 in Stuttgart

Yes, it is well known that Stuttgart has been working at a new railway station for quite some time now. What we did not know, however, is that the fine-dining restaurant 5 is located in the former Stuttgart train station from 1846. The location of the first Stuttgart main station was until 1922 on the SchlossstraƟe, which is now called BolzstraƟe in the relevant section, near the Schlossplatz. A wooden hall spanned four railways at this time. The first train arrived on September 26, 1846 from Stuttgart-Cannstatt coming. The gigantic black steel girders on the first floor of the restaurant still tell of its history as a train station.

This past gives the restaurant on the upper floor an incomparable charm, really great.  And why is Restaurant 5, awarded with one Michelin star, now named 5? Because of the 5 o’clock trains? No, not really, that 5 should refer to the Chinese doctrine of the five elements, the five elements are a classic model of the diversity of life and its transformations.  Here the bow spans to the kitchen of the 5 and its variety and its breathtaking dishes. Trains are not arriving anymore at 5 o’clock, but for that comes course by course a fine-dining experience at its best! So we will come back soon and wait for the 5 o’clock train again while enjoying that awesome restaurant and by the way we have ordered of course 5 courses šŸ˜‰

Why back again in the OLIVO Restaurant in Stuttgart?

We are back again for the third time at the famous Stuttgart Gourmet restaurant OLIVO because its Chef have changed. The old chef Nico Burkhardt left the OLIVO in the summer this year and the new chef is now Anton Gschwendtner. Mr. Gschwendtner is from Austria and there he is already awarded for one of the 5o best Austrian Chefs. Further more Anton Gschwendtner received the Austrian 2018 newcomer of the year award. So that was enough reason for us to be back again at the Stuttgart OLIVO and write our third report in our Fine Dining Blog.Ā 

So new chef, new team and still the same OLIVO? Well there is no doubt that the OLIVO Restaurant Stuttgart serves its guests still fine dining food at its best. Yes Anton Gschwendtner and his team really surprises with their creations. The food is for sure a bit French fine dining style but at the same time there is also a quite nice Asian influence in most of his creations, which we really liked and enjoyed a lot. Especially the nice and friendly team together with the Asian influenced courses are for us already now today reason enough to be back with our Fine Dining Blog also a fourth time šŸ˜‰
